Dolly 2016 Resolutions from About.com Doll Collecting

A Million Dolls Cheer! Happy New Year 2016!
What are your dolly resolutions?  I'd love to hear them; we could feature an advice column with readers' tips!  We preview a rare Checkeni doll head prototype this week from the upcoming Forever Young auction by Theriault's, as well as another glimpse at Monster High pending a reboot of the MH dolls that is proving to be a little controversial. Also, more on toy soldiers, those symbols of Christmas and Babes in Toyland, and the story of my fabulous Bebe Reclame, in time for Etrennes, or New Year's Gifts. Also, look for posts on my site of my favorite dolls, and McDonald's is featuring Shopkins and Rabbids at some locations. Write to me at etsag1998@aol.com, and may we have peace in 2016!

Faked and Fabulous Military Miniatures  
Toy soldiers were so popular during the 19th century that older sets were often faked or reproduced. They are traditional icons of the holiday season, and fun to revisit.
