We will be adding photos, beginning with ancient dolls, as an annexe to the museum; visit us on Facebook, Dr. E's Doll Museum, and on Twitter @Dr. E's Doll Museum.

Rare German Bisque Characters, Living Dead Dolls, and More
Rare Bebe, German Characters, and Folk Dolls Come Together
summer and good weather comes UFDC, including Doll Day, and many doll
events and auctions. This weekend alone, there were in my area myriad
yard sales, at least two church sales, Second Fiddle Sale which benefits
our symphony, and at least 4 Estate Sales. I was very lucky at Toys R
Us' annual sale, and on "foraging trips" to thrift stores. The Hallmark
Ornaments, including Barbie and Madame Alexander examples, debut next
month. Truly, we have an embarrassment of doll riches waiting at our
doll house doors. What are your favorite doll plans this summer? I'd
like to know to do a post, a doll travelog, if you will!! I love to hear
from my readers, so please email!
An unusual collection and assortment of French bebes, folk dolls, and
German characters goes to auction, a companion to Love, Shirley Temple.
The amiable lady on the cover of the July 2015 Antique Doll Collector
Magazine looks as if she is a portrait of Cousin Bette herself. Read
Goodyear's invention of vulcanization made rubber dolls and toys
possible. Read about and see the beautiful doll that is the ancestor of
all our modern rubbery and vinyl babies. This wonderful girl is a
proud member of my own doll family.
