Simple cloth dolls are a rarity in this day of big box stores and the seeming competition to make the most commercial of commercial dolls. Yes you can find aisles of plastic dolls in any big box store—dolls from all the movies and TV shows that do everything from talk to wet their diapers. But simple childhood dolls that are huggable and soft? Dolls that leave something up to the imagination of the child? That can adapt to any pretend play situation the child comes up with? Those dolls are harder to find.
Luckily for us, there are still those who make simple cloth dolls for children. Reba of Dolly Mama Eugene is one of those people who lovingly handcrafts the kinds of dolls we want our children to have.
