  1. Thanks for sharing this story. Wonderful to see someone doing something so constructive with her doll collection. Maybe I could do something similar.

  2. You are welcome, Limbe Dolls. It is indeed wonderful to see someone utilizing their collection to encourage young girls in the community. Hickman's outing makes me want to pull out my rolling luggage of stored dolls with books and resume my one-day exhibit at local schools, libraries, and the African American Museum. Maybe soon.

    1. Thanks for commenting, Misty. I thoroughly enjoyed it, too.

      I hope it encourages others to share their dolls with girls in their communities... because a girl is never too old to play with (appreciate, collect, love) dolls.
