She’s pretty, a fact it is best not to forget. Happily, she also believes that “pretty is as pretty does.” She has a lot of patience with the boys (which is particularly helpful when Waverly loses his focus). She is wise, sees both sides of an issue, is a natural mediator, and offers well-reasoned advice.

AREA OF EXPERTISE: Trees, plants and flowers
INTERESTING FACT: An art lover who draws, collects pictures of shells, and loves bright colors

Lola is a huggable, soft, plush toy handcrafted in Egypt with 100% organic Egyptian cotton. No two are alike - just like children!

— The kit, packaged in a window box that breaks down for use as a game, comes with one Idbid, a book, a field guide to fill out and a cinch-sack backpack. Launch date: February 2008.
