Corolle, the premium doll brand designed in France, is celebrating its 40th Anniversary in 2019. “It has been an incredible 40 years,” said Muriel Joron, Marketing Manager of Corolle SAS. “Corolle dolls are beloved around the world. Through so many trends and play patterns, the brand truly has withstood the test of time.”
Headquartered in Langeais, France, in the Loire Valley, Corolle dolls are treasured by children and handed down from generation to generation throughout Europe and worldwide. “With beautifully made products and enhanced play experiences, its little wonder Corolle continues to be an industry leader,” said Joron. “We are very excited to celebrate our 40th Anniversary this year and to bring today’s children updated versions of the dolls and accessories that generations before them have loved for 40 years.”
To mark the occasion, Corolle is introducing two anniversary dolls this year: Calin Madeleine for children ages 18 months and up, and Léonie for children ages 3 and up. Longtime followers of the brand will recognize Léonie’s face – it’s Nouveau Né, one of Corolle’s first dolls. Both Léonie and Madeleine are dressed for a party, with a celebratory printed pattern reflecting Corolle’s French heritage.
“There is nothing like the magic that happens when a baby or young child sees a Corolle doll for the first time,” said Joron. “The love and utter devotion on the child’s face when they hug and hold their Corolle baby is what truly sets us apart. Parents can trust that they are getting the very best for their babies.” Joron continued, “This year’s collection is truly enchanting, with the introduction of our Anniversary dolls, as well as updated fashions, accessories and more. These collections inspire a child’s lifelong adoration and companionship of Corolle.”
Corolle is the premium doll brand designed in France, designed to be the perfect look, size, feel and scent for little ones to love and cherish.

"French doll company Corolle is known for its beautiful, high-quality, realistic baby dolls. I've become quite attached to three of them, Bebe Charmeur, Babipouce and Blue Suce Pouce. While they sound very French, I promise that they have global appeal.
They are so lovely that I find myself absently patting the doll's back, as if it were a real baby. If you smell the tops of their heads (like every parent does automatically) each of the dolls smells faintly of vanilla. If only real babies smelled so sweet!"
