Charlie Bears Update

As of July 1, 2013 - Charlie Bears Bags for Plush are being phased out.  Overwhelming feedback from Charlie Bears Collectors and Stockists highlighted the concern that an excess of bags were being delivered to stockists and collectors with no use for so many bags.  As a result, Charlie Bears has decided that it is time to stop including a free bear bag with each Charlie Bears plush purchase.  (Please note that this does not affect the Limited Edition Charlie Bears Mohair Isabelle and Minimo bear bags, which will still be shipped with each collectible mohair bear free of charge.)

New 2013 Spring Collection of Helen Kish Dolls Introduced

Today we got word that Helen Kish Dolls is adding two additional dolls to her 2013 lineup - Bethany Falling Leaves and Tatum Gotta Dance. 

Both dolls look like perfect additions to Helen's Piper Big Sis and Peyton.

Per Kish & Company's decription of both Tatum Gotta Dance and Bethany Falling Leaves:

"Tatum Gotta Dance is so excited about her almost matching penguin pinafore.  But she goes one better with her penguin style cap and shoe covers, so convincing that she is ready for Halloween.  Underneath her colorfully decorated grey wool felt pinafore, Tatum wears a simple little frock with a black knit bodice and sleeves, and gathered skirt in a black and white print.  Her tights are a bright yellow burnout knit and her shoes simple black Mary Janes.

Bethany Falling Leaves is resplendent in her autumn dress and wool felt pinafore ensemble.  The dress is a combination of a soft lime green top, with lightly embroidered and beaded 3/4 length and a dropped waist with  full gathered print skirt.  The strawberry red pinafore is embroidered in black outlines to catch the falling leaves of soft lime green and dark turquoise, each leafe affixed with a tiny red bead."

Please stay tuned as both dolls are expected to ship late July - early August.
