Monthly Competition – ‘Hard Plastic or Celluloid Doll’ – Put your dolly’s best outfit on & bring her out to play!! Celluloid dolls were made way back from 1863 onwards before stable plastics were invented – celluloid was what they made movie film from also. Celluloid is highly flammable, difficult and expensive to produce and no longer widely used. The dolls are very light-weight & can be easily damaged so be careful transporting them!
Hard plastic dolls range from the late 1940’s (Alexanders), ’50’s (Pedigrees), ’60’s (OK Kaders) right through to current day, although we have a lot of vinyls & silicone dolls these days!

NEW WORKSHOP – ‘FAIRY GARDEN’– A $10 kit will be available for purchase for those who have advised they wish to make one. There will also be some very inexpensive bits’n’pieces to purchase to go in your garden if you wish! No doubt there’ll be a couple of spares if you’ve changed your mind & decided you want to do it!!

SHADOW BOX DOLLS / PEDDLER DOLLS – Members still not finished are able to bring their Shadow Box & Peddler dolls for Julienne to check your progress & help anyone who needs it!!

NO DONATED DOLLS FOR SALE THIS MONTH – We should’ve all just had a good dose of dolls at the Annual Doll & Bear Fair!!

Any enquiries – please call Elaine (President) on 0439 263 269 or (07) 5536 2428.
