    I Probably Have Over 200

    When I get a doll now, she has to be very special.  My favorites are my Native American dolls and my Campbell Soup dolls.  I even have one of my first dolls as a little girl.

    I've been collecting Barbie and Disney dolls for the past 7 years. At times I'd say my collecting borders on addiciton. A new doll is my total crack.   I hope there are others here that collect dolls as well - of any kind. Please share if so!
