I started this blog to learn something about writing blogs so I decided to write about something that is important to me, my dolls.
My dolls are not expensive, most are not mint or NRFB (never removed from box), a little piece of doll jargon I have learned. They are childhood dolls I couldn’t bear to part with, replacements for lost childhood dolls or dolls I wished I’d had. There are a lot of 1960s dolls because I was a child in the 1960s. There are fashion dolls of course, dolls made in all parts of the world, England, Australia, Canada, Italy and China. Dolls from op shops and markets, dolls I sat up half the night for hoping to win on eBay.
I hope to write a bit about each group of dolls, a bit about the dolls themselves and my own stories of how they came to me as well as other thoughts about dolls in general. I hope that if anyone stumbles on this blog they will enjoy reading about my dolls as much as I enjoy writing about them.
Recently I invited my sister Naomi to share this blog with me. Naomi has some of her childhood dolls too and has collected a few others as well as action figures as a part of her toy collection.
