BACKGROUND

Bambolina was started by Cate O'Neill, who has always loved dolls from her first much treasured Sasha dolls, which grew into a family of five. With two young daughters of her own, Cate was constantly disappointed with what the high street had to offer and the internet offered little more. She has come to the rescue with Bambolina. Cate's children and their friends have been part of the testing panel, making it quickly obvious as to the dolls that would do well.
