The Hearts for Hearts Girls, Dolls and Games are owned by the Playmates Company International, which holds the registered trademark for these toys. To learn more about the Hearts for Hearts dolls, please click here.
The Wellie Wishers and the 18 inch American Girl dolls mentioned in this blog post are products offered by Mattel, which holds the registered trademark for them (™). Please visit the Mattel Toys website to learn more about their company and its trademarked toys.
The Crissy family of dolls which includes dolls like vintage Crissy, Velvet, and other dolls, were produced by the Ideal Toy Corporation, which held the registered trademark for them. That company is no longer producing the dolls, and at the time of this blog post, no known company has purchased the trademark to re-produce these dolls. But if you wish to purchase one, you can sometimes find them on eBay (see link in the first set of bullets).
MGA Entertainment is the company that produced the BFC Ink dolls (which is pictured in my video as my niece, Emily), and it still holds the trademark rights to them (™). The BFC Ink dolls (aka Best Friends Club dolls) were in production, starting in 2009, but at the time of this blog post, they are no longer available in stores. You may be able to find a used one on eBay, though, if you’re thinking about collecting them (see link in the first set of bullets). These dolls can swap clothes with Crissy dolls, but their bodies are much more articulated. They have very lovely faces.
