Brown felt body, with good facial features, black hair in a long braid over her right shoulder. Gold ring earrings. Sandals on wood base that says Colombia on top. Bottom says- Artesanias y Tipicos "El Darien" Las Bovedas Local No. 5 Cartagena de Indias Colombia.

Acquired through Ebay April 2002. $9.00.

Celluloid doll from Columbia. Originally had a blond wig. This is probably a doll made in another country, and is in fact an "international" doll, not a souvenir.

Probably the most typical dolls from Columbia. Purchased as part of a lot on Ebay October 2003.

This doll is not in my collection. It was offered on sale on Ebay September 2002. The seller wrote "Betty La Fea (Ugly Betty) was a soap opera in Colombia. Very popular in the Latin community. She is in the orginal box and is 22 inches tall"

Dolls of the World

I have just begun this page to share information about my own new international doll collection and to organize data about dolls of the world.

Contribute to my page, please. I set out to add a penpal from every country in the world several years ago, just as I am now aiming for a complete survey of dolls from every country. If you have a favorite memory of a souvenir doll please share and I will incorporate your comments under the appropriate country.

To me this is a way to travel the world without leaving home, though in fact it seems to be leading to plans for a trip around the world in my future.
