I was recently given the Corolle Tidoo Bath Baby as a gift - thank-you, Susan, and from the moment I opened the box I have been delighted with her. She has a very sweet face with a touch of color and slight gloss on her lips and sleep eyes with lashes. As you can see in the photo, she can suck her thumb, which is an adorable touch in a baby doll.
She has a nice fragrance to her that seems to me like a cross between vanilla and baby powder, but for those of you that don't like fragrance in dolls, it is very mild.
Tidoo is a 12 inch doll that is part of a line of dolls intended for children 18 months and older. She is a good size for little hands to hold and little arms to hug. In the interest of safety, her clothes have velcro closures. Her pajamas are made of soft velour and are loose enough to make it easy for little ones to take them off and put them on again. She also comes with her headband and a washcloth.
Tidoo has a soft cloth body and vinyl head, arms and legs. Since she is intended to be able to bathe with her new friend, she comes with instructions for drying her, and a little loop at the back of her neck to hang her up to dry on.
My doll is the Tidoo Suce Pouce in Pajamas, she is also available in Strawberry, Sorbet and Graceful. I highly recommend this doll for doll lovers of all ages.
