As children, we were encouraged to play, to imagine, and to dream. Dolls evoke a nostalgia for childhood's past, and connect us to that playful, creative inner child. They transport us back to a time when our spirits were free, and we expressed ourselves more authentically. Dolls represent both our inner and outer selves—the parts we share with the world, and the parts we keep to ourselves.
