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.
