This just in: Monster High Friends will be thrilled; a Lady Gag MH doll is expected to be available Fall 2016! This will be the first "portrait" MH doll.  I don't know about, but I see dolls everywhere!  They certainly were at the New York Toy Fair this year, and at one of the recent antique shows I attended.  I'm seeing prices holding steady for dolls on ebay and etsy; even reproductions seem to be averaging about $70 per doll this week.  It's never been a better time to be a collector!  I'd love to hear about your own doll collecting finds at etsag1998@aol.com.  Remember to send me your suggestions for posts, and what you would like to read about dolls.  Happy Collecting!  A special thanks to Doll-lighted to meet you of Doll Shops United, for favoriting my Tweets and liking my posts on Facebook and elsewhere, and to all who like our photos on Flickr and on my blogs!  We love our readers and our followers!

Marionettes, Ginny, Chinese Opera Dolls and More! Our Newlsetter from About.com

The Mandalay Marionettes Swing Again! Happy Valentine's Week
It's Valentine's Day and President's Day tomorrow! The New York Toy Fair took place this weekend, along with one of our oldest Antique Shows!  Look for reports on both soon!  This week we take a look at the famous Mandalay Marionettes and their important role in the culture of Myanmar.  Also, in light of last week's Rendezvous Auction, an update on our girl Ginny is printed here for your approval.  Here is also a review of some lovely Chinese opera dolls and dolls for Washington's Birthday in honor of President's day.  Do you have photos of patriotic dolls you would like to share?  Email me at etsag1998@aol.com.  Note that our old "collect dolls" email address is no longer in service, and thanks to the persistent reader who found me last week when she discovered the old email no longer worked.  I'd also like to take time to remember my friend, Mary Hillier, who loved Valentine's Day, and whose last gift to me was a magazine in which she had published about antique Valentines.  Mary left this world on February 14, 1999, but she is with me every day in spirit, and her wonderful doll research lives on.  Happy Collecting, and Happy Valentine's Day, and thank you for your notes and emails.
