The Chéries dolls are vinyl, with sleeping eyes and rooted hair. They are manufactured by Corolle since 2001. They are 13" tall and feature Corolle's trademark vanilla fragance. They were designed to look like an eight year old girl and have them all names beginning with C. Here are those I own in my collection:
At the very first issue of Les Chéries, they were two dolls: Camille and Clara.
We are said that Camille is 8 years old, that she is blonde with blue eyes and that she has no relatives. Also she is an intelligent little girl. Here is what she says herself about her: "My ideas and my sense of resourcefulness enable me to get out of difficult situations". Camille has a playmate: his dog Caramel.
On this picture, Camille wearing "Ensemble jardinage", an outfit from the collection 2001.
Clara is Camille's best friend. She is also 8 years old, she is a red head girl with brown eyes. Clara has three brothers, two of them older and one baby named Jules. About herself she says: "I am spontaneous and love sport. I often act quickly without thinking about what I am doing."

Clara hangs out her clothes ("Nuisette" set from 2001).
Then, the following year, in 2002, Camille and Clara get more outfits and even accesories. Here, Clara and her scooter from collection 2002.
Also, Camille's little dog Caramel and Clara's little brother Jules became available. Here : Jules from 2002 collection.
During the holidays, in 2003, Camille and Clara met two new girls: Candice and Chloé. Chloé loves fashion and shopping (look in the 2004 collection for a picture).
Candice is raven with asian face, she loves dancing and music. There will be another Candice in 2004, but she will not appear anymore after that date. Here is a picture of her, from the collection 2003, wearing her original outfit.
