What's Under Sam's Cape?

Well, isn't that something! We have had Silent Sam in Dolltown for over two years and we have never seen under his cape. It's funny how some dolls just seem dressed already.

No costume changes!


Recently however, we did a little research and realized Silent Sam was probably meant to be a female doll. We looked up the origins...


Sam has always been a guy doll to us. Even after we discovered he had a baby.

I mean we get a say in this, right?


We got curious, though, about what was under Sam's cape. And less than an hour into the visit with our new doll, Sam peacocked his cape right up over his head. (Or her head.)


He kind of looks like a guy, with short pink arms. 


Stunning beads, Sam!

But we noticed the beads on one beaded foot are coming unravelled...

Uh oh...now what?


Look on the left there! You can see Sam's baby on his back!

The small blue roll! Does that mean it's a boy? 

Is "Blue for boys, pink for girls." an African thing, Togo?

We decided to call mama "Togo" and her baby "Lome"

We think they came from the country of Togo, and Lome is a city there...


Okay, I'm going to leave them to get to know each other.

I think I can hear action back at our Eiffel Tower!

    Oh how very interesting and what a coincidence. Our neighbors are from Togo as well!
