June 2019 - World Doll Day Month

What? No holidays to celebrate in June other than just plain ol' summer? What about World Doll Day? What will you do to celebrate on this 33rd year? There is still time to do something. Even if you just print up some coloring cards available on the website ( and pass them out during your travels on that Saturday or an event that you may be attending over the weekend... wink wink  ;)

No mid-month reminders in June, July or August so be sure to mark your calendars now for any events that you may want to attend. I don't know many times I have received an email from someone looking for a particular show only to realize it was a week or two ago.

In her inaugural World Doll Day letter, she wrote “I have always felt that the common doll could be an instrument of world understanding. From the first time I started writing books on doll making, I had the hope that dolls would help make friends all over the world and develop a little love among all.”
