Introduction
Picture of Girl Playing with Her Doll

.

Dolls have been made by mothers for their daughters from many different kinds of materials. Dolls are a little girl's best friend. In early American settlements, dolls were crafted from scraps of fabric or whatever was lying around that was not needed. There was not much time for children to play because they helped out with the family chores. When little girls did have time for play, they may have only had one doll. Clothespins, wooden spoons, corn husks, rags, yarn, and socks have been used to make dolls. Faces were not necessary and were often left plain. A child could imagine her doll talking, laughing, or crying. It is these old-fashioned dolls that we feature in our Historical Doll Kits section.
