What Do Kids Collect? Dolls and Stuffed Animals

 

Do you remember your first stuffed animal or doll? Do you remember who gave it to you or how you got it? That may have been the beginning of your collection.

Join us for Storytime: Guess & Go Story on MHHM’s Facebook page at noon today. Listen to stories about stuffed animals and dolls and see the dolls on exhibit in the Children’s bedroom, part of the W. Parsons Todd collection.


Resources:

  • Listen to Barbara Whiteman, founder of the Philadelphia Doll Museum established in 1988, discuss important pieces from her collection of over 300 dolls, which she personally collected for over twenty years.
  • Read about Miss Columbia, a traveling doll that toured the world from 1900 to 1902 to raise money for charities. Miss Columbia belonged to doll collector Elizabeth Richards Horton, whose collection is now part of the Wenham Museum in Wenham, Massachusetts.
  • See the list of the top 10 Toy Museums in the world.
