Adorable Kinders Mari Doll Adorable Kinders® Wins 2009 IPMA Greatest Products Award

Winter Springs, FL (November 16, 2009) – Peek inside a kindergarten class and you’ll see adorable personalities developing basic skills through creative play and social interaction. Ask a kindergartener to play with one of the Adorable Kinder® rag dolls and you’ll quickly understand how the cuddly dolls captivated this year’s Disney iParenting Media Award judges. Mari, one of 26 rag doll pals, has been named a 2009 IPMA Greatest Products Winner in the Toys & games category for sparking little imaginations.

The huggable, snuggle-able Adorable Kinders doll collection is based on an active group of kindergarten friends. Each rag doll is named for a letter of the alphabet from Alise to Zachary. In the middle of the collection is Mari, dressed from head to toe in red and standing 18” tall. A perfect pal for children 2 years old and up, Mari received the following rave reviews from the iParenting judges:

Fantastic quality! The doll is very durable, colorful and lightweight. Care instructions look easy to read and follow. This doll caught the attention of little girls in a kindergarten classroom playhouse area. The soft body is great for squeezing and hugging. The long hair on this particular doll was fun for the children to braid and the yarn did not fray at all. The dolls shown are multicultural.

There are many positive characteristics concerning this product. The doll is large enough for a child to enjoy interacting with during play. I feel the design and materials used making this doll are of high quality. I also love the detail of the outfit the doll was wearing and having an option available to buy other outfits.

The positive characteristic of this toy is that it has a bow in her hair that my child can use as well. I also really like the material the doll is made with is sturdy and soft at the same time. Having the clothing removable so the child can change outfits is also a huge plus.

Award-winning Adorable Kinders are made by Granza, Inc. and retail for $59.99 each. Just this year, the rag doll collection has earned over a half dozen industry awards including Dr. Toy’s 10 Best Toys for 2009; Dr. Toy’s 2009 100 Best Products; NAPPA Gold Award; and four honors from The Toy Man.
