I Spy with Doll Eyes
In the Spotlight
Written by Stephanie Finnegan   

Espionage has long fascinated many of us. History is filled with acts of treachery and betrayal, and even MAD magazine chronicled the often disastrous exploits of “Spy vs. Spy” for more than three decades. People love the intrigue of cloak-and-dagger, and the world of duplicity and danger seems a far cry from the realm of dolls. Or does it?

Puppet Power: Raise your hand—preferably with a puppet on it—if these charmers have carved out a place in your life!
In the Spotlight
Written by Stephanie Finnegan   

A recent poll has revealed that most people meet their future spouses by the time they are 16. I don’t know the validity of that research, but I can tell you that I met my lifelong love before I was even 7 years old.
