Lifelike dolls at Dubai Parks And Resorts

They have real hair, glass eyes and genuinely unique facial features


As if, somehow, Dubai Parks and Resorts didn’t already have enough in the way of, ahem, dreamy things to do, allow us to introduce you to its brand-new retail attraction, Le Chateau des Reves.

Situated close to the bridge and the entrance to LEGOLAND in the Riverland complex of the park, its sprawling shopping streets that interlink the respective entertainment parks, this house of every child’s dreams opened its doors last month, revealing a treasure trove of toys. In the castle, kids will find the very best wooden toys, not least those pictured above – the incredible handmade Zwergnase dolls.

For the uninitiated, Zwergnase dolls are distinctive creations, which combine toy and art. Every doll has its own unique facial expression, giving them all life and character. With choosing the materials (including real hair) also key to capturing that character, acclaimed German artist Nicole Marschollek-Menzner’s goal is to capture the child within. These are toys meant for the soul and for play all at once.
