How did Dolltown begin?

We talk to Terri Lee, the oldest dolly here in Dolltown...


Terri, can you tell us how Dolltown started?


Well, Dolltown has been around for a long, long time. But it's a little like Brigadoon, and can only be accessed at the right time.

You-Know-Who thought a thought at the right time, and Dolltown appeared to her. And this time it stayed, because YKW kept the thought alive, inhabiting it with the dolls she had-me and a few others. And by opening the doors, so to speak, to dolls as a kind of retreat.


A retreat?


Yes, Dolltown is now a Come and Go place for busy dolls. Dolls who have jobs- in acting, photo stories, eBooks, marketing, advertising, and as companions for humans. Dolltown provides the Dolls a place to live and work from, hang out with others, and be cared for.

And most of the dolls have agents who get them into photo stories, eBooks, YouTube videos, advertising spots.




Yes! Lots of the dolls would love to get an advertising contract with the right company. Like Jennifer Aniston and the Aveeno company. Or  Matthew...Matthew McConaughey and the Lincoln company. I, myself, remember in my younger days when I worked with Dove soap in the 50's. And with Heated Carmen Curlers, very modern in the 70's.  Sigh...


How many Dolls are there in Dolltown?


Well, YKW likes to say we have 100 dolls here. But she is fond of that number, and just uses it as a projection to aim for. She wants to be sure Dolltown is set up for growth in the future.

So the reality is-there are usually a lot fewer.  But if YKW has her way, that number would gradually increase as Dolltown becomes known for quality work, and its beautiful, interesting and talented Dolls.

And after she gets up into the attic to get the Sashas, Transformers, Masters of the Universe, and Barbies...


What do the dolls do in Dolltown?


Dolltown has a Community Centre where everyone gathers, a Day Care, a Cinema, a couple of Cafe's, shops, a Salon, a Ballroom, small and big houses, lots of countryside with rivers, meadows and country houses. So there's always lots to do.

And of course, we have Dolltown Abbey up on the hill, across the meadow, where  the Iples live and The Others gather...


I, myself, have a big old house in the country. My old friend, Queeny, lives here with me now. Queeny and I both care for Child Dolls, Babies, and Teen Mom Dolls. And we always have Dollies coming and going until they find their own place here in Dolltown, or move on....


Ernie, my, uh, special friend, and his Doll people have been here forever. They live in the surrounding area and mingle with all the Dolls here at our events.

Ernie is a, uh, great help. Very handy guy...


Excuse me, I think we have a new arrival. I have got to go...


Okay! Thank you for your time, Terri!

Can we talk again? You must have lots of stories.


Yes, of course! Come back and see me again sometime....

    Why thank you, dear April. Terri Lee had a lot to do with who joined us here in motley crew of childhood dolls all got "friends" (from the Babies to the Barbies.) And Terri Lee was there, giving me her opinion! It's one of the ways we have ended up with such a cooperative, friendly, and hardworking bunch. She has an eye...
