2008 Honors...

by Alison Rasmussen

Listed on the What's New page, five dolls have received awards/nominations this year from IDEX & ToyFair.

Dolls Awards of Excellence nominations go to White Hot Ava and Sunshine & Smiles (Effanbee).

IDEX Dolls of the Year go to Manhattan Grand Sydney Chase, Captain Jack Sparrow, and the American Model Winter Solstice.

I'm curious to know how these awards are chosen. I like Ava, but it seems to me that her jaw is a little large or square. I wish I could find more pictures of her online--or better, see her in person.
