"Oh no!", I can hear you cry, "Not another one of her crazy doll stories!"
Well, sort of.....
A while ago I bought two dolls (I'm not going to say "vintage" or "old" because these dolls are the kind of dolls I played with, & I'm just a Spring Chicken I'll have you know!)
One is a 1960's Tearful Cheerful & I did indeed have one of these dolls - my Grandmother gave my sister & I one each for Christmas. My mum has a photo somewhere of us with them....unfortunately I no longer have mine. :-(
Anyhow, this dolly's facial expression changes when you move her arm - down & she cries, up & she smiles.
The other is a 1970's Tiny Tears. Both of them were a little grubby, needed their hair restyling & were naked (eek!).
So I thought it was about time they had a little attention & here is their story in pictures....
Tune in tomorrow for the next exciting episode.....
So .... what's different ?
