The 30-centimetre high dolls are called Maryam, Fatima, Hana, Zakariya and Mohamed. All the dolls come in different skin colours. The dolls from the "My little Muslim Friends" range speak single sentences when you press their hands.
Barbie is celebrating her 60th anniversary as an astronaut! This is the most spectacular job of probably the most prominent representative of all the dress-up dolls. With the right clothes, accessories, different body shapes, skin tones, eye colours, and hairstyles, the Barbies from Mattel, Inc. (Hall 12.2/P-15) offer endless storytelling fun. Girls can collect the Barbie career dolls and toys and act out the careers that they aspire to.
Dollhouses for larger residents, too
Dollhouses offer the classic stage for role-playing games. These days, they are normally designed more for small dolls and characters. Under the KRASATOYS brand, the Russian company PapkaPrint CO., Ltd. (Hall 1/C-18B) offers the dollhouse called "Cottage Svetlana" for dolls that are up to 16 cm in size. The house consists of plastic parts that can be easily combined with each other in many different ways.
"Question Heroes" and Bibi the Witch
The FRAGENHELDEN ("Question Heroes") from the German company of the same name (Hall 3A/D-02) have a wealth of exciting questions and ideas for a million stories in their luggage. Badges are placed on the plush heroes that trigger different actions. Children can decide whether they want to hear a story or interactively intervene in what's happening. What's new this year is a multifunctional pen that adds a lot of new functions to the storytelling and play options. It includes, for example, a snooze function.
The "Bibi & Tina" hand puppets from HEUNEC GmbH & Co.KG from Germany (Hall 12.2/P-14) are a good example of licensed products in the doll segment. You can choose between "Bibi", a teenage witch, and her horse-loving friend "Tina". The area of role play, which is so important for children, finds a tangible outlet with these toys when it comes to imaginatively acting out ideas from the world of Bibi Blocksberg and her companions.
