I’m packing ready to move and in the loft today I found four dolls I had as a child, so they are all about 50 years old.
My favourite was Suzie Smart, she used to talk, but doesn’t any more, her eyes have caved in where the elastic has perished, and when I picked her up this morning her leg fell off where the plastic has become brittle and broken! I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry (did both in the end), and then I made up my mind to let her go. But hubs came in for his lunch and said don’t throw away anything if it’s making you cry and now could be the time to see if you can get her restored.
I have always said that I would love to get the talking mechanism fixed at a doll’s hospital, but there’s never been spare money for things like that in the past, but now I could afford to do it.
What do you think? Am I being over-sentimental? I’ve tried googling some dolls hospitals, but they seem to be geared more towards antique dolls than 1960s!
