Tillywig Award Winner 2018

Via E, Inc.

Elena is a recent addition to Dollfriends, an outstanding line of wholesome, durable, ultra high quality vinyl dolls whose lifelike appearance and carefully crafted features promote deeply engaging play with a positive values orientation. Luxurious golden blond hair, open and close eyes, bendable arms and legs, and detailed feet are just a few of the 22 features of realism incorporated into Elena's design. Breathing further life into Elena's character are personal details and backstory that appear on her packaging (which doubles as an art gallery and contains several artworks for girls to color in) and which are elaborated upon in illustrated books published by her manufacturer. There are several Dollfriends currently available from Via E, Inc. as well as numerous accessories, each of which has a learning purpose at its core. This marvelously integrated approach inspires play through which girls readily absorb lessons of friendship, family, diversity, self-esteem and empowerment. Bravo!
