Tall Dreams Ensemble

Within moments of seeing this baby doll, then picking it up and feeling the quality, care and crafting that obviously went into creating it, there was a feeling among testers that the “Tall Dreams Ensemble” is a seriously high-end doll. Even before opening the beautifully designed antique-style box, parents were enchanted by the fantasy of what’s inside. The body of the doll is weighted and stuffed so to be more like a real baby but also makes it quite heavy, this may make it difficult for smaller children to carry around. The baby comes complete with a number of accessories including a cute toy, bib, blanket, hat, pacifier, bottle and light sweater. Some testers felt that the doll was almost too life-like for a small child. Plus, at a price nearing $100, it almost feels more like a doll that would be appropriate for a much older child or an adult doll-collector. The addition of a “Certificate of Authenticity” which has the doll’s number and a signature from the artist is a nice touch but once again begs the question of who is Paradise Galleries target market – a collector or a child? Should the doll be kept clean and safe, stored in the box or dragged everywhere? You will have to make that determination, but when it comes to the highest end craftsmanship, Tall Dreams is top notch.

HOW IT WORKS

A Seal of Approval review involves a multi-step process conducted over an eight-week period.

Parents and children, experience and review submitted products and services either already released or coming to market.

Participants fill out questionnaires for each product or service they test. They score based on 13 levels of criteria including quality, appeal, design, price, packaging, directions, desirability, stimulation, replay factor and more. Results are based on both statistical averaging and comments received by testers.

There are three testing periods each year:
