Choosing dolls for your collection is a personal thing, but we have reasons...
Once we identify why we are collecting dolls, or what we love about it, the choices we make can be based on a variety of factors:
the age and era of the dolls we
the designer or company
the look of the doll
the material the doll is made of
the size we want
the handle ability
the use it will be put to
And we may ask, how will the doll fit in to the collection? Are we filling a gap? Are we adding variety? Are we buying yet another favorite? Are we buying at all...maybe it's a trade. Perhaps you are creating your own doll.
For some of us, there is a lot of excitement when we are choosing, or waiting for a doll to arrive, whether it's a vintage doll, a ball joint doll, a Smart Doll, or a Little Darling, or another Little Darling...
Think about your process as a doll collector!
How do you choose a doll?

I know what you mean about a doll choosing us!
You have a wonderful collection! I wonder if your dolls come and go?
I definitely choose with Dolltown in mind!
Thank you! Glad you love Hiya Dolly!

Sometimes, I think that the doll chooses me, haha.
Usually, I suppose, a doll affectionately reminds me of someone I know or love or of a favorite book, movie or experience I've had.
I do have an affinity for dolls from my own age group (ancient), but I really, I love them all with gross lack of rhyme or reason. <3
P.S. I adore "Hiya Dolly"! :)
