Our aim at Petalina is to enable our customers to have a wonderful buying experience with first class customer service.

Our pink and pretty state of the art website has been designed to provide detailed information and large, high quality images for all of our products with plenty of guidance to help you find the right doll or accessories for your little girl.

Our range is extensive with dolls suitable for every age group. This is because when Cate finds a gorgeous new range of dolls she just has to buy some for her customers to enjoy.

“My Granddaughter has several dolls from Cate's wonderful "Petalina" doll site and she loves every one. The difference in buying from Cate as opposed to any of the big chains is not only Cate's expertise in finding the right dolls in the first place (safety tested, great quality control, etc) but the follow up custotvmer service is bar none. This is someone who puts her heart and soul into her business and who creates a lot of happiness for the children who receive them. This kind of attention to detail in business is rare these days. Hats off to Cate for providing what the big sellers cannot - Excellence.”

"My name is Cate O’Neill
and I love dolls and always have.”

My name is Cate O’Neill. I love dolls and always have. It seems that this passion is in my blood as during the 1950s my Grandfather modelled dolls for Rosebud, find out more about my Grandfather below. My mother then introduced me to Sasha dolls when she and my godmother clubbed together to buy me one for my 7th birthday.

I loved my Sasha doll so much that by the time I was 12 I had a family of five Sashas. I can remember travelling all the way to London with lots of pocket money in order to go to Hamleys and choose my next addition.

“I have tried to find them equally beautiful and lovable
dolls to encourage their creative and imaginative play.”

Unfortunately, one of my Sasha dolls experienced a traumatic haircut by me (I now know why my mother was so upset when she discovered this) and another was badly chewed by our puppy. However, I still have them all and wouldn’t part with them.

Now that I have two daughters, Libby and Rosie, I have tried to find them equally beautiful and lovable dolls to encourage their creative and imaginative play and help develop that much needed empathy.

“I have a certain taste and loathe plastic tat so I have
only included dolls in the Petalina range which I love."

I have been constantly disappointed by the poor selection of dolls readily available on the high street and there is still very little available on the internet. Hence Bambolina was born which in 2012 became Petalina. I have had loads of fun putting together the range with lots of help from many of the mums I know and their daughters.

I have to admit that I am a bit of a fuss-pot, I have a certain taste and loathe plastic tat so I have only included dolls in the Petalina range which I love. I hope you love the selection as much as I do.

If you have any comments or suggestions for the site then please let me know.
