We’ve got some amazing fans out there, but you already knew that being one of them! Hearing your stories about how our dolls bring you happiness or incite those sweet childhood memories will never get old for us.
Our Collector Spotlight will feature some of these fans and highlight the things they love most about our dolls .
Without further adieu, meet this month’s Collector, Sheila S.!
She’s been a Paradise Collector for years and we got chatting with her about why.
Here’s what Sheila told us:
"I have loved dolls for as long as I can remember. When I was little I collected all kinds of dolls and stuffed animals. They all were very important to me, we moved alot, I went to 20 different schools always having to start over making friends. My dolls and stuffed animals were always a constant in my life. I started collecting Paradise Galleries dolls last Christmas when I got Picture This, I was in awe of her and have been sharing her story along with my other dolls on Instagram and YouTube. I love their facial expressions and that I can also dress them in real baby clothes."
With children social distancing and staying at home, it is so important, now more than ever, for them to find comfort in play. Play has always been a focal point for the development of children, and playing with dolls in particular has been proven to have many benefits for a child’s social and cognitive growth. Here are a few ways that dolls can help support our children during this time.
Now more than ever, we are committed to giving back to those in the elderly community who are being restricted from visits from their loved ones during this time. But we need your help! Read our blog to nominate a nursing home to which we will donate our dolls, bringing those in assisted care facilities love and companionship!
