I’m not so familiar with Madame Alexander dolls except through reading about them.  Marilyn is a blogging friend of mine who used to collect vintage dolls. It was Marilyn who was able to identify my Sweet Sue for me. I thought that our readers might enjoy reading about how Marilyn restored her composition doll. As she comments in her post there are not so many dolls hospitals about these days so sometimes you just have to learn to do things yourself.


  1. Thanks. I hope other doll collectors at least learn the basics. It used to be you could take you doll to the “hospital” and have her all fixed up, but no one does that anymore. So it’s useful to know how to replace hair (rooted or wigged) and fix stuff. Makes a good hobby too.
