When I was in elementary school, my father had the opportunity to travel outside the country on business trips. Sometimes he would bring me back a doll from his travels.
This is a 1970s Vogue Ginny from the Far-Away Lands Series in Dutch costume. She is perfect, except one of her tiny wooden shoes has disappeared.
Because of her lovely costume, I only used her (primarily) as a display doll. My wish to have a play Ginny with lots of clothes to change into never happened, (at least not yet).
I did collect a few other 8 inch dolls, but again, they were display dolls.
