Dolls--paper, wood, or fabric--it doesn't matter.

 

They can transport you to another place.  Another world.  Another time.  Are skilled where you are not.  Tell tales you do not.  Can live a life you cannot.

After 8 years of having little girls I am still fascinated by the intricate world of doll play.  It changes daily and yet, still is the same.  Children always experiment with newly gained knowledge in their play, testing it, trying it out, seeing how it works vicariously through another entity.

One of the virtues of being very young is that you don't let the facts get

in the way of your imagination.
