Goya's doll is here

For my camera Critters post click the here I have eagle photos there. sorry wrong link was entered in Mr LINKY

I receive The Effanbee Doll I ordered Last Friday. Camera critters post.
It was fast, And what a surprise he was wrapped like a Christmas present. With a very nice card inside. What was interesting The doll is number 440 and had the original price tag of $125.00 from Shirley's dolls in Wheeling Illinois. So this doll started out in 1985 one state away from me. With it in the original box. This doll was well cared for or in storage most of its time. This doll may have been loved and treasured. But never played with. It's kinda sad in a way. But now I have to decide it's fate. Do I put it under glass or touch it?

Effanbee 1985 Limited Edition 14" Doll
Goya's "Don Manuel Osorio Manrique de Zúñiga"
This was the only problem I had. Reba took over the shipping box. And Crash wanted his turn.
Have a wonderful day and remember to laugh and play.

I always found that my children, when small, enjoyed the boxes gifts came in almost as much as the gifts themselves. I'm glad to see your kittens feel the same way. Beautiful doll by the way.

I agree with you that's it's kind of sad to have a doll that's never been played with but it's obviously been treasured. It's really cute.

Aren't cats fun!

well, I wouldn't let any kids play with it, but I bet you could play with it without hurting it too much ;)

That's so true about the kitties - if there is a box or a paper bag, there will soon be a kitty in it.

What fun! I know you were excited! No matter what you decide to do with it, remember its a treat for you. And you deserve to treat yourself.

Love the kitties in the box, Reba and Crash are SO pretty!!!

Looks like Crash is "thinking outside the box". Reba may need to watch outtt!

Your doll is really cute. I think I'd put it out on display, not under glass, but where everyone could see it.
Boxes make the best playthings!
