Re-creating baby dolls with a new look is about to take place in New York.
The dolls will debut at the Toy Fair this fall and will be sold at the New York Toy Fair for a limited time.
New York Toy Market CEO Michael Nadel told Fortune that this will be the first time in more than 50 years that re-creations of the original Baby Doll will be on display.
“The dolls are incredibly well-received,” Nadel said.
“It’s a brand that’s been around for a long time.
It’s a little bit of a novelty, but people love it.
We’ve seen the response to the dolls in terms of kids who grew up on the show and who are now taking them home and re-enacting the events of their childhood.”
The dolls are inspired by the characters in the “Reborn” TV series and have become so popular they are now sold at New York’s Toys “R” Us and at some specialty retailers like Target.
“We’re thrilled that they’re coming to the New Yorker’s iconic Toy Fair,” said Toy Fair Commissioner David Tannenbaum.
The dolls will be available for purchase from January 16 through January 23 at the NY Toy Fair and at select retailers, including Target, Best Buy, Walmart and Home Depot.
Nadel said that the dolls will make their debut at a special Toy Fair “themed after the show.”
“The toy fair is a perfect platform for this,” Nader said.
The Dolls Are Born: The Real Adventures of Princess Leia and Luke in the Original Star Wars TV Series is a popular franchise that is a major influence on the re-imagining of the popular characters.
Re-imagined characters have been shown on television and films in the past, and Nadel is excited about the opportunity to share the stories of these characters in their original form.
“I’m very excited about this, because this is really what our audiences have come to love,” he said.
While the dolls won’t be able to interact with other children, Nadel says that the toys will be fun for kids to play with and can be used to build Lego projects.
Toy Fair Commissioner Tannensbaum also praised the dolls’ appearance.
“When we see the dolls being brought out on the floor in front of children and we see them in the real world, it’s a very positive thing,” he told Fortune.
Like any other re-created toy, these dolls have their own unique personality.
“They’re very playful, they’re not like the toys that kids play with,” Nasser said.
“When we show them in person, it is a completely different world and they are very expressive,” he added.
“In this world, they are real people and they can interact with children and with adults and they have their whole personality.
And they also have the same emotions.”
