Paciocchini - A Miniature Doll Craze Heading Our Way
Welcome to our information page on Paciocchini Dolls. On this page, we'll give you an introduction to the miniature Italian Dolls, which may well be set to become one of the biggest toy crazes of 2011. When we first set eyes on Paciocchini, at London Toy Fair, we immediately had that tingling that comes with seeing something that might be massive. Paciocchini launch in the United Kingdom later in 2011 - we'll be bringing you the launch date as soon as we have it.
Paciocchini were originally a hit in their native Italy in the 1970s, being sold at newsstands in packs of two or three. Now in 2011, Giochi Preziosi have brought them right back into vogue. Scented figures, standing only a few inches high, each doll in the Paciocchini range is utterly adorable. Watch this space!
One of our top tips for 'huge craze' status in the United Kingdom in 2011, Paciocchini mini-dolls were originally a hit in Italy in the 1970s.
