Hello! Fellow doll Lovers!
My name is Kevin, and.....I'm a doll-a-holic, (in unison..) Hi Kevin! LoL and a great big "Hi!" Back at ya!
This wild and crazy ride of doll collecting started as a wee lad. I use to wait for my older sister to go to school so I could run to her room and grab her Chatty Cathy doll. My first Love. This fabulous doll along with both sisters bubble cut Barbies.
Fast forward to my adult years, I started off collecting Mattel talking dolls from the 1960's. I have most of the ones I wanted, but a few still escape me.
Barbie was also a huge Love. Many vintage which later led to reproductions and Silkstones. After that, I bought my first Fashion Royalty doll. Love at first sight. Once I had one of these dolls in hand, I was instantly hooked! The articulation and fine craftsmanship amazed me! Oops...forgot to add...ideal Patty Playpal dolls. These dolls are freakin' huge! But I love them. They are the same size as a 3 year old child. Believe it or not...I have seven! Which way more than enough considering their size. I also consider them...works of Art.
Anyway...that's my (somewhat) condensed version of my doll collecting hobby.
For now...it's pretty much Integrity Fashion Royalty dolls only.
Besides my current collecting...I am working on downsizing! Not an easy task for someone who has been a doll collector for over 20 years now. But truth be told, Papa needs a room for his shoes.
I'm so happy to have found this Wonderful site! (Thanks Deb!)
I look forward to getting to know you all and share your passion.
