The latest doll to fly off shelves appears to be the Japanese or Samurai Ken. I couldn't find any at Target. Had luck at Toys R Us, and I bought one online, and one at the local store. I don't usually buy two dolls this way, but it was so hard to find I decided I wanted a spare, and would also like to take one out of the box. I do like to keep my new dolls boxed. I've regretted taking them out because if I have to store them, I can't keep everything with them. Besides, their boxes are nice, and I find it easier to store them. This is, of course, personal preference. No one should keep or toss boxes because they feel compelled to do it. I also am not doing it to increase value. That kind of speculation frustrates and depresses us here at the museum. We like to remember it is a hobby, and we like to keep it light.
