Anyone may enter their beautiful baby photo between 3 months and 18 months on Paradise Galleries blog (http://paradisegalleries.blogspot.com) along with 250 words or less saying what makes them the most beautiful no later than March 16, 2012. Entry links may also be found on Paradise Galleries Facebook page www.facebook.com/ParadiseGalleriesDolls or, by following Paradise Galleries on Twitter www.twitter.com/ParadiseGallery.

The Company staff will select the top 10 semi-finalists then post the photos and stories in the “2012 Beautiful Baby Contest” Facebook Photo Album on  http://www.facebook.com/ParadiseGalleriesDolls on March 19, 2012. The semi-finalists will invite their friends and family to LIKE their photo and story. The entry with the most votes by March 25, 2012 @ 11:59pm PST will WIN a baby doll created in their baby’s likeness and will be named Beautiful Baby “First Name”.

According to Peggy Vicioso, VP Marketing & Product Development for Charisma Brands, the parent company of Paradise Galleries, “We do not think a baby doll contest like this has ever been done before, we like to be first. A master sculptor will recreate the baby’s likeness in clay, and then molds will be made for reproduction. No detail will be overlooked down to the skin tone, hair and eye color. We plan to document the process and share on Facebook,” says Vicioso, “The beautiful baby contest will allow our consumers to become more involved in the doll making process.”

The complete doll will be available just in time for the Holiday season 2012 and will be featured in the coveted Holiday keepsake catalog.
