Sure she’s daddy’s little girl, but it’s your closet that Little Miss Dress Up raids come playtime.
Spare the Loeffler Randall sandals, but spoil her inner Rachel Zoe, with Dace Paper Dolls. A collaboration with Philadelphia fashion illustrator Dallas Shaw, the doll and the fall 2010 Dace fashions to dress it with are a free download. The first look featuring a knit dress, ankle booties and a billowy jacket is now online, and more will follow in the next couple of months.
Suddenly saying “cut that out” sounds so obliging.

You gave up on big box toy stores when your little one started asking for a Malibu blonde with a perma-tan.
The Montreal-made Raplapla collection is both creative and cuddly—and innocent enough for the toy box. The quirky limited edition rag dolls (think multi-coloured spiky hair and funky clothing) come with their own names, occupations and ethnicities, like Océane, the clairvoyant Portuguese plumber (pictured).
After all, dolls shouldn’t require SPF and a pink convertible.
