Ah, les Francaises sure do know how to produce fabulous dolls. The latest models from our friends across The Channel are known as Les Mistinguettes and there are nine in total,Â each with individual characters and interests. My favourite is Odette, above, who ‘is secretive, loves doing the French Cancan but hates Camembert’. The dolls, which cost Â£29.99 each, come packaged in sturdy shoe boxes with their picture on the front, so would make a fabulous gift. Practical details:Â suitable from birth and machine washable. Four – Odette, Jeanette, Paulette and Suzette – are available from Toyella.
