Passing Down the Doll Collecting Gene
Written by Alison Rasmussen   
Attending local doll shows is a great way to pass your love of dolls on to young daughters or relatives. Here’s my experience.
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
  • they wouldn’t throw fits about buying dolls beyond their allowance or cause a scene,
  • they wouldn’t whine about when we could go home,
  • they wouldn’t beg me to buy any dolls, and
  • if they didn’t think they could keep to these rules, they should not attend the show.
Lauren at the doll showYou might think these rules are strict; however, I take my doll shows seriously, as I may want to return next year. Plus, I don’t want to apply the “one more restaurant we can never come back to” approach I’ve had as a mother of four for the previous ten years to my doll hobby.
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.

What a charming story! It would indeed be great if your daughters' current love of dolls stays with them. This is how the collecting gene gets passed on...parents, aunts, uncles, & others sharing their interests.

And thanks for sharing the doll outing...
