Madame Alexander Dolls Representing Different Countries


The Dollhouse and Toy Museum of Vermont in Bennington is home to a splendid collection of Madame Alexander dolls, among hundreds of other items.


Several of the dolls represent different countries all over the world.


Their sweet faces look out from behind glass cabinets and shelves.





There is much to see in the 1860 charming house-turned-museum.

Jackie Marro opened the museum several years ago and loves chatting with visitors who come to view all that is offered there.




Hope you enjoy seeing some of the dolls today.





Check back other days for more about this little museum that is packed-to-the-gills with all kinds of whimsical goodies.

DO YOU ENJOY LOOKING AT DOLLS?

Oh, how I love these heritage dolls. I have about five small ones, and Francesca had the best time playing with them this weekend. I love that second picture, and wonder where she's from? I bet it was wonderful to see all the different dolls from around the world at the toy museum. The Yugoslavia one is my favorite. : )

You know what Susan - I had my ancestry done - and I was looking at the dolls that matched my ancestry. I was wondering if the coloring of the dolls - matched the real people of the country. Interesting. Love, sandie

I have the international dolls my mom was collecting for me from Avon way back when. I really should find a way to display them rather than having them stuck away somewhere.
