A Doll’s Life

Rochel Burstyn

Have you ever known a little girl who doesn’t love playing with dolls? It’s something little girls have been doing for thousands of years. Dolls haven’t always been the babies we know them as. And sometimes dolls aren’t playthings for children, but collector’s items for grownups. Let’s travel back in time to some significant dates in doll history.

 

F is for Friendship

Ruchama Schnaidman

The best thing about having a best friend is… Wait, you’ve heard me say that before, haven’t you? Well, okay, I’ll admit, there’s lots of benefits to having a best friend and you can’t really blame me for always thinking I’ve found the one reason that outweighs all the rest. That’s just the way it is when you have something really good. You’re grateful for it one day, and then more grateful the next.

 

Jr. Tales

Shayna Friedman

Maybe you were supposed to be too old for dolls at her age. At least that’s what Yechiel teased her about. And this Shabbos was the worst. They were all in the van, packed and strapped and snapped when Leah’le realized Zissi was still sitting on the windowsill in her room.
