Favorite Friends

About the brand: 

The Favorite Friends dolls are mid-priced ($45 - $50) 18" vinyl play dolls that are roughly the same size as American Girl dolls. (Like many of the lower-priced AG competitors, they are slightly smaller.)

Very similar dolls are available under various brand names though these are generally cheaper (around $30) and of slightly lesser quality:

  • Mia Bella (Toys R Us)
  • Doll Factory (FAO Schwarz)
  • Friends for Life (Walmart)
  • Fashion Doll (Target)
  • Alexander Girlz (Costco)
  • Dolly & Me (Sears, Dillards, Kohls)
  • What-A-Doll (Kmart)

These dolls all share the same body type with a vinyl limbs and head, soft lower body and vinyl breastplate. This body was originally developed for the Dear America series of dolls that Madame Alexander produced in 1999 - 2000.
