Minneapolis, MN (April 5, 2016) – Sugar and spice and everything nice is, well, nice.

Now in their 18th year, Groovy Girls has encouraged kids to be exactly who they are – unique and amazing! For 2016, there’s something way outside the lines…completely new prints and patterns!

Parent company Manhattan Toy® has added on-trend prints, patterns and nine new dolls to the Groovy Girls 2016 Spring Collection. Discover fab furniture like Groovy Girls Heart to Heart Sofa ($22) and adorable (and so affordable!) clothing like Groovy Girls Rainy Days Poncho ($8).

Say hello to four soft dolls that start with the letter “L” — Logan, Layla, Lily and Lola ($15). They measure a snuggable 13” tall and sport their one-of-a-kind hairstyle and clothing. Lily is ladylike in her brightly colored jumper and white tee. Sporty Layla is looking purrfect, as her pink pussycat shirt proclaims. Lola boasts long blonde hair and a maxi dress while Logan’s curly mop top is as endearing as his casual clothes.

Another new series for 2016 are Groovy Girls Candy Club Dolls ($15). Brunette Julia, blonde haired Brynna and carrot topped Lolly arrive in pretty candy print dresses and brightly colored shoes and stockings. The girls are radiant, confident and boast their own style, in the colors of candy!

Is there a tiny dancer in the house? Groovy Girls welcomes two ballerinas to its 2016 collection – Groovy Girls Ballerinas Lacey and Melissa ($20). These special edition dolls have removable wings.

Fashionistas can always count on accessories to make an outfit pop. What could be more impressive than a pony! Actually, Groovy Girls introduces Shadow, the Horse ($25). This black beauty sports a tuft of pink mane and pink tail. At 12’ tall, Shadow can trot any Groovy Girl atop his frame for a run around the rug.

All Groovy Girls dolls, clothing, accessories and furniture are ideal for children ages three and up. Look for these new collectibles to mix and match:

Today’s fun is brought to you by … the letter “L” for Layla, Lily and Lola! Each 13” softie is dressed in charming outfits from tomboy to girlie and something a bit in between.
