Remember trolls? If you are suitably mature you do. Funny/quirky little dolls that were introduced in the 60s. I was about 8 when I got this one– my first and all time favorite one. The gray hair tipped in brown is what makes it unique. Sam thinks they are creepy. But oh come on, not any more so than garden gnomes. That smile and those rosy cheeks…she looks so earnest and sincere. I can’t recall what kind of clothing she wore–it unfortunately didn’t survive with her. I read that these were the second best selling dolls in the 60s, Barbie dolls being the top sellers. Some mornings I feel trollish. But there are worse things. Unless you are a barbie.
Lovely, drawing and great story; thanks!
Ahh yes, Trolls I love. They were all the rage, that is for sure. I had a troll house that was a suitcase that unfolded and had formed plastic beds. PS, why do you say, she? You are assuming a lot. 🙂
Hmm…yes, I guess all my dolls were girls unless they were obviously boys, like Ken. I wish I had your troll suitcase house! I love doll houses.
