Dolls, never go out of date, they just become collectibles and are carried on through the generations, memories.
But they should be part of a child’s life, it leads to the wonderful and lovely job of caring for babies, toddlers, and children.
My early memories of dolls as a child was a little kewpie doll I had, it was a treasure I could hold in one hand, and I would carry it around everywhere, over the years that little doll has got lost.
