Traveling Dolls

I've had a couple of questions from readers about Traveling Dolls so I've made this entry to help explain things.

First, I'd like to take a minute to help explain what the Traveling Dolls are and why I don't post about them anymore. You see, the Travelers COME to my house. They aren't my dolls. They belong to other members of the doll forum. Their owners have decided that their dolls want to see the country (or the world) and send them out to different hosts for two or so weeks at a time. While the doll is staying with me I will post pictures of their activities while at my house. When they leave, I can't post any more about them because that's up to the next and subsequent hosts to post.

I miss JD, Kealoha, Meadow, Alex, Cordelia, Nora, Sadie and Toast, but they are either still traveling around visiting other states, or have gone home for a visit or permanently. You can read about some of those travelers on their own blogs which are linked on my side bar. Some of the travelers don't have their own blogs, so we can't keep up with them anymore. Ah, fun times with all of them.

Second, If you are an adult and a member of an AG Doll Collectors Club (such as AGPlaythings) you might be selected by a Traveling Doll owner to host his or her doll for a couple weeks. Most forums won't allow collectors under the age of 13 to join for legal reasons.

One word of caution also, owners don't normally send out their dolls to new members and never to those under 18. There are just too many problems that could arise in either case.

I hope this answers some of your questions and concerns about the Travelers.


  1. Thank you so much! My dolls have received much love. :D I really do try to take care of them however, I brushed dear Josephina's hair all the way home from the AG place in Chicago hence the frizzies. :D

    The traveling dolls sound very interesting. I was think of selling a couple of mine but I simply couldn't bear to part with them. :D

    Thanks again!

    My daughter and I would be very interested in hosting a doll at our home. We currently have 7 dolls and would love to take care of one more for a we would use this as a "learning" experience for my daughter to journal on the care of the new doll. Please let us know if anyone is interested.

    We look forward to hearing from you. God Bless, Kim Ward
