P31 Elisabeth Doll by ONE2BELIEVE

This exclusive collection of high-quality dolls is based on the biblical teaching of Proverbs 31. The P31 dolls were specifically designed to provide a Bible-based, Christian alternative to secular toys on the market, and to encourage young girls to pursue biblical womanhood. There are three different P31 dolls: Abigail, Elisabeth and Leah. Standing 18” tall, each doll has beautiful glass eyes, long rooted hair and a contemporary outfit. Each doll comes with an accessory kit, containing a Bible lesson (based on Proverbs 31:20), two cookie-cutters, a cookie recipe and a list of exciting activities. This activity is sure to be tons of fun for any young girl. Josh Livingston of one2believe said, “It is our prayer that the Lord would use these dolls as a means to encourage the girls of today to become Proverbs 31 women of tomorrow.” Launch date: December 12, 2006.

In Travel Mania, players travel around the board and must collect five visas and passport stamps — one from each of five continent groups — to win the game. Travel Mania is unique in that as few as two players to as many as 20 can play (in teams, of course). The game can be finished in about an hour, or play can be extended if desired. Luck, smarts and random chance all meet to create a Travel Mania winner. Travel Mania is the winner of a 2007 Dr. Toy Best Product Award.

In this adventure game for two to 12 players, four areas in the park are reserved for exploration — a lake with an island, desert conditions, mountainous trails and forest paths. Stormy weather comes along and a child, a young woman, an older man and a family of five are missing. The Search & Rescue team must share equipment, develop strategies and contend with mounting storm centers in order to save them. The company requires a $100 wholesale minimum, and the game can be mixed with other titles. This game made Dr. Toy's Spring 2007 Best Products List. Launch date: March 2007.

Gender: Boys And Girls
Category: Card Games

In this trick-taking card game by Dan Baden, two to seven players seek to finish secret recipes by capturing tricks (ingredients) played by other players. The catch is, sometimes players have to take ingredients they don’t need, which can set off a chain reaction that destroys everyone’s secret recipes. Play takes about 30 minutes.
