Christmas Week Newsletter! Free

Cloud Pets join the "Cloud"
By the time you read this, Christmas 2015 will be a memory, and we will be on the 3d or 4th day of Christmas!  McDonald's will be changing Happy Meal Toys, soon, with Hello Kitty on the Horizon, and Theriault's will be featuring two more auctions.  I'd love to hear about the dolls you got for this holiday! This week, we learn about Cloud Pets and Stuffies, two new toys for doll collectors to explore.  We review an episode of "Bob's Burgers" that inspire dolls but that also spoof doll collecting, and we'll look at a wonderful puppet from the upcoming Cabaret auction of Japanese dolls.  Happy Collecting!
