Today (Sunday August 7, 2016) is Doll Day.

‘They look like miniature people. They have names, personalities, families, houses, cars, whole life stories. They provided hours upon hours of entertainment for years on end. They let us express our own feelings long before we ever really understood them. They helped us learn important lessons about friendship and sharing. They helped us get through long, sad, lonely days. They played an important role is us becoming who we are.

What are we talking about? Dolls, of course! And we challenge you to think of a toy that deserves its own day as much as dolls do! .

The earliest dolls were made clay, stone, wood, bone, ivory, leather, wax, and other available materials. Wooden dolls have been found in Egyptian tombs, and in the graves of Ancient Greek and Roman children … as well as clay dolls. Rag dolls are traditionally home-made from spare scraps of cloth material.

In modern times, Mattel’s Barbie has become one of the world’s most popular dolls. First created in 1959, the Barbie doll has continuously adapted to the ever-changing markets of numerous world countries by coming out in a wide variety of shapes, colors and sizes, each carefully adapted to the inhabitants of a certain region.

Doll Day was created to celebrate the enormous contributions dolls have made to the development of children the world over as well as humanity as a whole. Doll Day is the perfect day for you and maybe a sibling or two to go up into that attic and take a walk down memory lane. Alternately, you could give your old favorite doll to your own child, to whom it might be much more precious than the brand new, shiny plastic dolls available at every supermarket. Some of the old toys you have may have become collectibles somewhere along the way and are now worth a fair sum of money. So whatever you do, don’t just throw everything out!’ . ^sPm #sharpharmade Fr ‘Days of the Year’ http://ow.ly/i/lTlCn
