The Paperdoll Community

We have to limit the amount of toys and dolls that we bring since we have to get EVERYTHING home within 400 lbs. Sounds like a lot until you start packing.

So Maria has taken to making new dolls. She now has over 175 paper dolls. They range from about 1cm for the babies to 9cm for the adults. Now these aren't random dolls. They have names and ages written on the backs of their heads. They have families. There are twins, triplets and quadruplets. There are different nationalities with appropriate names. There are complicated stories associated with each family. And she knows when one if missing and asks me, "Mama, have you seen Kitia?".
