Yes, I am a dollaholic. And as such, I collect all types of dolls. Fashion dolls, vintage dolls, little dolls, big dolls, vinyl dolls, hard plastic dolls, etc. One of my etc. categories is child dolls. Yes, I LOVE child dolls just as much as I love any of my dolls.
I was a little tiny girl (well, a little girl, anyway) I loved Barbie just as much as any other little girls of the time. But I have to confess, when Skipper came out, I was thrilled! I LOVED her – more than Barbie. And to this day, when I see my Skipper (yes, the same one from when I was little) I just sigh. The sight of her takes me instantly back to being a little girl. Not a care in the world except for when can I get more clothes for my Skipper. And when my grandmother hand knitted clothes for her, I was in heaven! I still have some of those clothes and it still amazes me how she could knit with such small needles and thin yarn. I plan on passing them on to my granddaughters and I hope they have as much fun with them as I did.
Now, as a child doll collector, I have something new to look forward to! Tonner Doll is coming out with more new Patsys in the fall release on August 29. I have seen them and they are way beyond cute!!! …AND they come on the Ann Estelle body, so she can wear the clothes you’ve already got in your collection, plus the new Patsy outfits can fit your Ann Estelles too! If you are a child doll lover too you are just going to want them all!!! (even if you do not particularly collect child dolls, you will STILL want to have them!!)
Isn’t she just adorable??? So, make sure you check out the release on Wednesday, August 29. Let me know your thoughts after looking at the new dolls.
Thanks for reading and have a great weekend!
