Caring for Our Dolls

For doll faces and bodies, simply wash the surface gently until clean with a wet, soapy cloth, and then air dry at room temperature. For clothing and accessories, spot clean with cold water and a mild soap, and then air dry. Do not put any Our Generation doll, clothing, or accessory in the washing machine, dryer or near any direct heat source.

How should I care for my dolls’ hair?

For best results, it is recommended to use a wire brush.

Divide the doll's hair into small sections and gently brush them one at a time. Make sure to brush out the tangles starting from the bottom of the hair and then moving up.

Mist the doll's hair lightly with water from a spray bottle if you are having a hard time detangling it.If the doll has wavy hair, be very gentle when brushing the ends, as this will help preserve the curls.

For tight curls, finger style the doll’s hair. Separate a small section of the hair and work your fingers through it, twirling as you go.

For braided styles, tightly braiding the doll’s hair while damp will help control frizzy ends.

  • Avoid using styling products like gel or mousse, as this may damage the doll’s hair.
  • Avoid using a blow dryer, hot rollers, curling or straightening iron.
  • Always keep doll’s hair away from extreme heat.

Our Generation Accessories

Once your little one has her doll all fitted out for their next adventure, Our Generation have cleverly produced scenes or themes to assist imaginative play. For instance, Explore the countryside with Daveen!

This Our Generation 18-inch equestrian doll loves to visit the stables and spend the day horseback riding with her sweet foal. How awesome that Our Generation not only provides a foal in this scene, but Daveen could also be accompanied with her own horse in the form of

the Our Generation 20-inch Pinto Horse! This beautifully patterned toy horse is the perfect size for 18-inch dolls who love to ride and shine.

Our Generation Clothes

We love how the clothes can be interchanged amongst the 18inch dolls. For a real change why not buy a whole new outfit. For example:

Dress your 18-inch doll in bright styles with the Our Generation Rainbow Sky outfit! The super cute rainbow dress features ruffle details, a colourful rainbow print, and a decorative cloud with a pretty lace ribbon for an extra touch of fun. Complete the outfit with the matching socks and stylish shoes when it’s time to travel outdoors. Then add the stylish pink raincoat for rainy days – it even has a hood to protect your bestie’s hairdos!

This outfit also features easy-open closures to quickly put on and remove, so your Our Generation dolls can mix, match, and look fashionable on every adventure!

Or perhaps your little one is eagerly awaiting Summer and can’t wait any longer. 

Enjoy fun in the sun with your 18-inch dolls in the Our Generation By The Beach outfit! Dress up your besties with the true-blue T-shirt and colourful swim trunks decorated in cool mini island and sailboat designs! 

When it’s time for a beach vacation, easily slip on the strappy sandals and accessorise with the trendy straw hat and sunglasses to add extra summery vibes. Picture time! Use the mini camera to capture the best moments with friends, and have oodles of playful fun with the pool noodle! This outfit features easy-open closures to quickly put on and remove, so your best pals can set sail for adventure right away!

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

We love how as a company they have an active eye on reducing waste. They have been relentless in choosing the most recycled and recyclable materials they can to package their  toys. Reduce. Reuse. Recycle. It’s a way of life. They plan for reuse from the very beginning. Of course, that starts with using recycled materials. All of their boxes are made from recycled paper that is easily recycled again. Where possible, they create packaging that doubles as a toy. Next, they make sure all the packaging is recyclable. All boxes can be recycled again and again and again.

Our Generation uses plastic, Citroflex®, fabric, ribbon, and many other materials when making their dolls and accessories.

Grandpas Toys and Our Generation

At Grandpa's Toys we are proud to supply the Our Generation Toys. The Our Generation Brand is well recognised in our community and is one of our top sellers, Our Generation® is Bigger than a toy company. 

This brand invites girls into a community of empowerment and play, a place where our girls' collective voices create the narrative of their generation. It’s impossible to separate Our Generation® characters from the generation of girls who play with them, for they are one and the same. They are our daughters and our nieces. 

Through the books & the dolls, Our Generation® characters come to life in the hands and minds of girls of this generation. They become best fiends and role models. Someone who understands what it's like to be a girl in a time and place filled with so many pressures, but also so many freedom and opportunities.

Our generation holds true to one of our core values - “Toys and Games for Generations of Fun”  - The Our Generation dolls and accessories have been made to last. Instead of adding to the landfill, these dolls and accessories pass on from one generation to the next. They are very hard wearing as they are made from quality products. 

They bring back happy memories for parents that also used to play with them as children, so the dolls are kept as they are far too hard to throw out, in the hope that the next generation gets as much love and happiness that we did.
