That's kind of sad isn't it? I mean what happens to all those dolls who didn't make it? The dolls who are broken, forgotten and thrown away? Made in the image of mankind, an emulation really ... made to entertain ... made to be loved ... and love? And now lost.
Let's remember on All Souls Day, those lovely dolls - when such care was invested in their creation. Before all items were replaceable and disposable. Their hair, erroneously cut by a younger sibling, could be re-rooted! Much-loved and worn bodies could be re-stuffed and stitched. A faded face repainted. Broken ceramic head? No problem - you could order a replacement from the catalogue! No need to throw dolly away. When the clothes wore out from the many ons and offs; new ones would be lovingly stitched by Mama.
So, on All Souls Day, let's think of all the dollies who didn't make it ... and restore the ones that linger in attics, basements, storage lockers and thrift stores - waiting to be loved again!

People want to be happy on the holidays. They are willing to do everything so that they may reach their dreams. They will sacrifice anything and will take some risk if needed. Dolls are like a mini human being to me and they have that charming characteristic that we will surely love. This is not a myth and we can definitely prove it. There will be a time when all of these things will be acknowledged and it will be a great time for these dolls.
