This Saturday is World Doll Day and is in fact the 30th year that it has been celebrated. For those of you who may not have heard of it before World Doll Day was first conceived by Mildred Seeley in 1966 when she wrote a letter about it.
Here is an excerpt from the World Doll Day website.
The day is not owned by any company, club or person and no fees, permission or obligations are required.
Many have celebrated the day by giving a doll to someone–a child or adult, but freedom of expression and celebration are left up to the individual. In the past, the day has been observed with exhibits, sales, seminars, doll shows and other doll related activities. Why not plan a special celebration in your community?
The logo was created by artist Boots Tyner and represents a child with a German bisque doll–her gift. The logo was designed for free use to promote this special day and may be reproduced.
Join in this wonderful celebration and time of sharing!
