North American Bear Co. debuted new plush items at Toy Fair 14 in New York City last month. New products include Girls on the Move finger puppets, Sophie and Lili dolls, and Bake ‘n Shake donut plush.
Girls on the Move finger puppets are adorable and unique in that the movable parts are the legs, not the more typical arms. The gymnast wears her purple leotard with matching hair ribbon, and sports her shiny gold medal. Her hands are in the air, making her ideally posed for a balance beam routine, floor exercise, or vault.
Sophie and Lili dolls come with their own name tags and are made of soft linen with bold, colorful patterns on the back. Each smiling doll is screen-printed and wears a cute, trendy outfit. Sophie and Lili dolls are available in 7-inch and 12-inch sizes, and there are six friends to choose from and collect. Their sturdy stuffed body is great for little ones to snuggle up to as they nap. The Sophie and Lili flip doll is a reversible design that changes when her skirt is flipped one way or another. One flip has her slumbering peacefully with a pink eye mask and cute bunny slippers. Her smile hints that she’s having a good dream—perhaps she’s dreaming of being a fairy? When her skirt is flipped the other way, her dream comes true. She’s dressed in a bright floral dress with red toenail polish, fairy wings, and flowers in her hair.
North American Bear Co. is known for its classic style and whimsical craft. These new items for 2014 are adorable additions to the product lineup, and offer collectibility and interaction.
