Tender Hearts Girls

Tenderhearts Girls Olivia

Tenderhearts Girls Olivia
Paradise Galleries' Tenderhearts Girls are five dolls of (mostly) different ethnicities, with Olivia being the Asian doll. She stands about 17" tall, and like her Tenderhearts pals she has a non-jointed cloth body fitted with an armature for poseability. (Only her arms above the elbows and feet above the ankles are vinyl.) She has long black hair with bangs/ fringe, worn in two braids. Her eyes are brown. She shares a face mold with her Tenderhearts friend Maria. Her original retail price was $50. She is now retired and can be very hard to find.

One or two of Olivia's Tenderhearts friends will sometimes make an appearance on eBay used, though Olivia seems very rare. Amazon however will sometimes sell Tenderhearts Girls, including Olivia, for about $30, brand new.

Emma's New Hair

I didn't know anything about Emma when I first saw her on eBay, other than she had the sweetest little face. I didn't even know her name at the time. I had bid on a doll just like her some months before, but lost the auction. So when she came around again, I had another go and won. So who was this little cutie with the bendable body and irresistible pout? Read more about Emma's New Hair

Tender Hearts Girls

Tender Hearts Girl Isabella

In 2011, Paradise Gallery introduced their 18" doll line, Tender Hearts Girls. The line consisted of five individual dolls, brunette Emma, African American Isabella, Hispanic Maria, Asian Olivia, and blonde Sophia.

The dolls could be bought in either a plain clothes version which came with a cute puppy pal pet poodle, or in a Girl Scouts Junior version. Read more about Tender Hearts Girls
