The doll are all characters of 'The Village with Three Corners'. They include Mr and Mr Red-hat, Roger Red-hat, the Blue-hat and Yellow-hat families (including twins Johnny and Jennifer Yellow-hat + their grandparents), etc. I am a costume and dolls enthusiast and have c. 100 ethnic dolls in my collection, and many books on ethnic costumes

At the end of going through the reading scheme of
