Formative Years


Even when I was a wee one, I loved my dolls.  I thought I would share some old photos my Grandma dug up for me.
Here I am, in 1985 (age 3) receiving my second Cabbage Patch Doll.  It was one of the babies with a pacifier.  Yes, I still have this doll.

Here is me in 1987 (age 5) receiving the Heart Family dolls.  This was the mom.  Yes, I still have them all.

Here is me again in 1987, with a rag doll.  Apparantly I was showing off.  Yes, I still have her.

This is clearly not me, but my Granny with two dolls I received in 1993.  A Happy Holidays Barbie and American Girl Addy (this was the first year she was produced).  Still have both.

Again in 1993 (age 11), with Masquerade Ball Barbie.  I was so proud of her because this was the first year my Mom thought I was mature enough to have a Bob Mackie Barbie.  They were very expensive, and I still have her.

Clearly, fashion was not my forte in 1994 (age 12), but I did get a My Size Bride Barbie for Christmas.  No, I never wore her clothes, and yes, I probably still could.  Hahaha!

In April of 1994 (age 12 still), I received a Bedtime Theresa doll.  This is the only doll whose whereabouts I'm not 100% sure of, but she's probably in my huge bag of Barbies.

Well, there you have it, a brief history of Allison's Doll Collection.  Enjoy!
