PokéDolls are a special type of Pokémon plush. They are based upon the PokéDolls available in the Pokémon games. PokéDolls are highly stylized and highly demanded. Their unique look and scarce quantity makes them very popular and hard to get.
For each change in a generation, the tag art also changed. US PokéDolls released prior to winter 2010 will have a longer red swing tag with a picture of PokéDoll-style Pikachu that it reads "PokéDoll". New in fall 2010/winter 2011, US PokéDolls have smaller rectangular blue, yellow and white tags that read "Pokémon Center" at the top, "Poké Doll" along the left side and the name of the Pokémon on the bottom as well as donning an adorable PokéDoll illustration of the Pokémon the tag is attached to.
Be sure you're getting officially licensed PokéDolls and not fake PokéDolls from Amazon Sellers! Officially licensed American PokéDolls have swing tags that contain the following pieces of information on the back side: The Pokémon Company International's street address, the Pokémon website, the copyright information, the year manufactured along with the manufacturer location information, a 12-digit UPC barcode and located on top or along side the barcode there will be the name of the Pokémon and a number that matches part of the second half of the UPC - always either a single four digit number or in the format of xxx-xxxxx where -xxxxx matches the five numbers of the barcode closest to the last number of the barcode.
