All these dolls do look similar so what is the difference?
Paola Reina Vs Minikane?
These dolls are pretty much identical, they are both manufactured by PAOLA RENIA in Spain. Minikane is a BRAND based in France that has an exclusive range of the Paola Reina Gordis Dolls.
Minikane also sells their own range of dolls clothes and accessories. Minikane dolls have the Minikane stamp on the back of their neck, Paola Reina dolls have the Paola Reina Stamp.
Paola Reina has also designed and manufactured a range for the Australian market - which are the dolls I stock.
Minikane and Paola Reina Gordis Dolls are both 34cm long.
Here is a comparison of Paola Reina Gordis dolls and Minikane Dolls.

Now, what about MINILAND?
This is a different manufacturer and brand, located in Spain. They have a wide range of educational products and toys.
Miniland Vs Paola Reina- Miniland Dolls come in several sizes, but the most comparable is the 38cm doll with hair. They are slightly longer than the 34cm Paola Reina doll. The Paola Reina dolls are bit chunkier and they have eye lashes.
I personally find Paola Reina dolls abit softer the Minilands have a harder, but more durable body, but are still soft to touch compared to a typical plastic toy.
Paola Reina dolls comes undressed in a Poly bag for RRP $68.
Miniland dolls come in underwear and in a box for $58.95 , or undressed in a poly bag for $48.95.
They are both quite similar style of dolls, so it just comes down to which doll's appearance you prefer.
I hope that helps explain the difference between them all. We stock both Paola Reina and Miniland :)

32cm Miniland Dolls
These dolls are obviously slightly smaller, and do not have hair, so they are a good option if you don't want a doll with hair. This is often the size doll that is seen in daycare centers. These dolls all come in a poly bag, undressed.
Latin American Girl/Boy
21cm Miniland Dolls
These tiny little dolls come either in a poly bag undressed, or boxed with underwear. This size is perfect for baby's first doll. They are also great for travelling and can easily fit in a handbag. I personally loved this size. Mia started loving her doll from about 9 months old. She could easily carry it around and loved to give it kisses and hold it in the car.
