Crazy for Madame Alexander Dolls
I could sit in my bedroom for hours re-arranging my Madame Alexander dolls, much to the happiness of my mother, who didn’t have to dust them!
I was especially obsessed with Mexico. She was decked-out in a multi-layered beaded necklace, with her pretty black skirt, and blousy white boat neck blouse. The senorita, as I called her, came with the patented white long slip and pantaloons, cute black velvet shoes with beads attached to the front and a white felt sombrero that I stretched-out the elastic band on.
I know I wasn’t supposed to play with her, she was a COLLECTABLE but, what child does that? Yes, all the dolls looked the same, no matter where they were from, but I loved them. They came every Christmas in a pretty blue box from my favorite Aunt; Aunty Faith. I would wait patently throughout the long Christmas Eve dinner, until we would all settle by the tree and the gift frenzy began. I never knew which doll she would choose to give me that year, but I knew exactly where I would place it on my shelf. I think she enjoyed the look on my face as much as I enjoyed getting the doll.
Thanks, Aunty Faith for allowing me to learn that true happiness revolves around special people and starting me on the road to my doll obsession!
What was YOUR doll obsession?
