Magicforest Showcases Two Of Moulin Roty’s Luxurious Toy Lines Boasting French Fabric Dresses And Classically Cuddly Bears And Bunnies
Portsmouth, NH (March 29, 2016) – When parents wish a loved one good night and sweet dreams, it’s a guarantee to happen if a Moulin Roty dolly or animal is tucked under the covers too! The French toy maker knows precisely how to mix sweetness with softness. Fresh in time for Spring 2016 baby showers, day of birth and just-because moments are two favorite lines – Les Coquettes dolls and Vite Un Câlin plush animals.
The dolls of the Les Coquettes ($40- $84) collection are all about looking fabulous (in that put together French way) while having fun! With their brightly colored clothes and wild hair, the five Coquette females — Adèle, Fanette, Jeanne, Louison and Marinette — each wear pretty floral-print dresses. Their wardrobe has been refreshed for 2016. The collection continues with two baby dolls – Camille (a boy!) and Margotte – who wear soft colors and cute little bonnets. Demure Les Coquettes are the perfect dolls to dress, cuddle and carry around the house.
“To buy this kind of toy,” described one mom who appreciates the finer things, even in dolls, is “to give a touch of good taste for a little one from the very beginning. Being a designer, I just adore this little doll. This doll is a joy for both, parent and child, to play together. It’s like a little cup of very expensive coffee for a special feeling to satisfy our gourmet and aesthetic needs. Highly recommend.”
The desire for owning a Moulin Roty toy is evident throughout its various brands. One very popular line in European households these days is Vite un Câlin ($30 – $54), translated loosely as “a quick hug.” Looking at the sweet teddies and plump bunnies, it’s easy to see their cuddly cuteness! If you are giving one of these beautifully boxed plush at a baby shower, be ready for the universal ahhhhhhs. The collection features Léo, Léonie and Léopold of the bear family plus Jojo, Jeannette and Jeannot rabbit friends. Each plush pal is packaged exquisitely in a sturdy keepsake illustrated gift box.
