Every time I start to list these... I pause and put them back. They are just wonderful. There are six dolls in all, Seven if you include the baby doll in one of the ladies arms. There is information two pages and another page from Dollology Fair Trade Doll Museum. These are just wonderful. There is a book that the maker also put out a book about the Doodle Family from the Ozarks. The set is just wonderful and in the two pages taken from "Your Dolls and Mine" By Janet Johl in 1952. The pages explain about Margaret Strain and how she started the family out with Art and MIttie ( His Woman) as she calls him.... The Art and Mittie Farm consist of Art, Mittie, and a Babe in her arms.. Poogie the Problem child and Little Rampie the boy. There is Uncle Nell, The fiddler player.... Other dolls were added... and I am not sure which dolls are in this groupthere is a story about each of the dolls and how they grew up as Mountain Folk.. a few like Rampie and Uncle Nell and Mattie still have the old paper label she gave them. This is just something to see.. The story is wonderful , warm and funny... Makes me want to get the book. They stand in size from the baby to 9" tall for Mattie.. they are all made barefoot. Margaret Strain had her own process that she kept secret.. the bodies are made of wood, then old cotton which is treated and clearly some wax.... I just love this set... and you will too... very unusual and hard to find her dolls. I have looked for an old copy of the book on the net including Amazon but they are sold out. This is a wonderful set and one you will not likely see again with this many dolls! Please take a moment to view our other items.
