WORLD DOLL DAY 2018

Today is World Doll Day, it is on the second Saturday in June and was established in 1986 by a lady called Mildred Seeley  as a day to not only celebrate dolls but also caring and nurturing love.


It is a day when people can give a doll to a child or person to celebrate the importance of dolls in early childhood to both girls and boys.



You can, of course , celebrate it however you wish. I thought I'd share these photos from last years Chat n Snap, which display was a toy shops Christmas window of all types of dolls, you can see many Sasha's but also lots of other dolls.

I'm hoping to add a photo here before the end of the day of a selection of my different dolls hopefully I'll remember to take it!

  1. Perhaps it's a good job that I didn't know about this special DOLLS day before now as might well have been tempted to buy/give myself a doll instead of strictly keeping to my downsizing rule.
    Loved seeing all these Chat n' Snap photos again...especially as I wasn't able to attend there myself on this occasion.

    1. If only I'd remembered sooner I may have treated myself to something small in the doll department!
      It's nice to see the range of dolls that came along :)

  2. Doll Day - what a great idea! That was a truly amazing display. It's a shame that stores don't do things like that anymore.

    1. It is ! Everyone was great to bring along such a range of dolls for the display.
      Wouldn't it be nice if we could turn back time for a day and we could go to one of these wonderful old toy shops and SHOP! :)

  3. Oh I wish I'd realised, I'd have given myself a gift of another new doll LOL! Actually I did get a new doll for myself the previous Saturday when in Barcelona but by the time I got home I realised she just wasn't for me so she has already been adopted out!
    I love that big display of different dolls, how lovely to see so many types all in one place! Thanks for sharing Dee :)
