|Passing Down the Doll Collecting Gene|
|Written by Alison Rasmussen|
I took my five and eight year-old daughters to their first doll show on Saturday. Before we left, I had to make them swear (in blood) that
My worry was unfounded. My daughters had a wonderful time. They looked at every booth with enthusiasm--enjoying each table, pointing out tiny dolls, miniature furniture and stuffed animals--to the delight of older collectors attending the show. Kate spent her allowance on a Dolls of the World Princess of England Barbie, and Lauren hers on a gigantic grab bag of doll-themed stickers. They were truly delighted to look and enjoy the sights.
I enjoyed myself, too, and can’t wait for the next local show in October. It gave us something to do together--just the girls. I love that I have passed the love of dolls to my daughters, and I hope that it will “stick” past their teenage years as well.
