France’s Loire Valley, the storybook region famous for its scenic beauty and fairytale-like castles, is where Corolle started more than 30 years ago and where all Corolle dolls get their start today.

Every Corolle doll is designed with great care, love and affection because we know that a doll is more than a toy; it is a cherished part of a child’s growing up:  A doll encourages a child to explore different roles through caring for and sharing hopes, dreams and experiences with an always-understanding friend and playmate.

Corolle designs dolls that look and feel as real as possible, with soft, supple vinyl; natural-looking hair and up-to-date fashions. And because children develop a strong emotional bond with their dolls, Corolle dolls are durable to withstand all the loving and hugs their beauty and charm inspire.  All of which helps to explain why, since its founding, Corolle has received global recognition for design and play excellence, winning scores of awards.

The Corolle collection stays young and fresh every year with the introduction of new dolls, updated fashions, accessories and more, resulting in a history that is rich in accomplishments, as our timeline shows.

Some things, however, will never change: We will continue our attention to the smallest detail in our dolls, fashions and accessories. We will continue to do our best to be the best. And we will continue to make dolls that inspire magical childhood memories that will last for a lifetime.
