Oh and I have a doll collection too, Tbear! I can't afford to buy them anymore, nor do I have room to display them, but I haven't yet decided to get rid of any. My particular fascination is Mattel. I have over 200 Barbie (and family/friends) dolls, Timey Tell, Hello Dottie, Baby Go Bye Bye (I think that's the name; she has a car and I'm rusty on the names), another one with a tricycle and horse and I can't remember the name of that one either. Those all 'do' something and need batteries. I also have an 8" Buffy and Mrs. Beasley (as well as a Skipper sized Buffy without Mrs. Beasley) I have others but only some of the Barbies are not packed up right now, so I don't remember! Oh - I have some Liddle Kiddles; those are Mattel too.
The one with the tricycle and horse to ride I did a layout on one time. Oh - her name is Tippee Toes. Anyway, I had one when I was little, and of course it got lost/thrown away/sold at garage sale/whatever. I bought the one I currently have at a doll museum for $50 back in the 90s. It's mint in the box. It has an original price sticker on the box - $24.95 - crossed out and marked down to $12.95. That threw up a red flag for me - neither of those prices sounded right for a doll back when I got it! I can't imagine my parents spending that much on one doll for one of three kids - and I was about three, so I wouldn't have taken care of it - in the late 1960s!
