Our Beloved Friends And Playmates - Dolls!

Created on Apr 11, 2016 by Kathy Pinna
Who was your closest friend in childhood? It may have been a brother, sister, cousin, or neighbor - but if you were a girl, your dolls ranked at the top. Do you recognize some of these dolls? Do you like them or find them kind of creepy? If you don't like them, one thing is sure - you would have loved all of them growing up!
