There is something for everyone in our One of a Kind Gallery – from the fantasy to fashion, from babies to storybook characters, the collection of art dolls we chose runs the entire spectrum.
Our One-of-a-Kind Gallery features artistic dolls from designers all over the world, allowing collectors to discover new fine art creations and simultaneously providing artists with broader exposure for their work. The gallery is a part of our aim to be the most comprehensive source for doll collectors around the globe while also creating a community for them to be a part of. Within the first couple of weeks of it’s launch we had already sold several, validating the reason we did it; collectors still love unique and beautifully hand-crafted art dolls.
The OOAK gallery preserves the organic transaction between artists and collectors as each handmade doll is packaged and shipped directly from the artist’s studio to their buyer.
Each artist is handpicked by the Paradise Team based on various factors including quality, artistic merit and aesthetics. It has already featured a Rolodex of impressive figures in the doll industry including domestic Artists such as Gregg Ortiz as well as International Artists like Mayra Garza from Mexico.
According to Peggy Vicioso, VP of Product Development and Marketing “There are fewer dolls shows in the USA and fewer ways for collectors to see the One-of-a-Kind work from Artisans around the world. While the OOAK is for sale its also fun to browse. The collector can learn about different artists, link to their online site and follow the work of renowned artists. We always are on the look out for a new OOAK to put in the Gallery to delight our community of doll enthusiasts.”

It’s hard to believe that it was 105 years ago that the world first fell in love with Kewpie® character from the imaginative mind of Artist Rose O’Neill. These playful and quirky characters have since taken on a life of their own, carrying on the special creation that Rose started over a century ago.
Its funny to think these “cherub faced” characters were originally intended for comics. They’ve certainly succeeded in her intentions of teaching “people to be merry and kind at the same time.” You can’t help but crack a smile when you see them and their trademark side glance and smirk.
Through the years Paradise Galleries has had some fun with Kewpie® products, everything from porcelain figurines to vintage looking Kewpies®! Year after year we try and innovate on these looks and offer Kewpie® collectors something fresh and fun to look forward to seeing in their homes!
Be on the lookout for some fun new looks for our 2015 collection! Here’s to another 105 years with Kewpie®!
