GIFT IDEAS FOR DOLL AND FINE PLUSH COLLECTORS

That's right, everyone -- the Holidays are coming, and Christmas will be here before we know it. From a subscription to a doll magazine, fabulous accessories, or a dream doll, the gift possibilities available on the Dolls Lane are endless. Here are some gift ideas for doll collectors everywhere. Steiff treasures are also great gifts for doll and Teddy Bear fans, and nothing says "I love you" more than a little something with a button-in-ear. If you are a Fine Plush collector, read Steiff's Christmas Countdown for some loveable ideas to fill your stockings this year.




LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT! STARTING A TEDDY BEAR COLLECTION


Love at first sight! That's how many people describe their feelings towards Teddy Bears and it's been that way since their "formal" introduction at the turn of last century. By 1907 Steiff was producing nearly one million Teddy Bears annually. Teddy Bears have many features that make them such appealing collectibles. Read a new guest blog by Steiffgal on Starting A Teddy Bear Collection.

FALL THEMES FOR YOUR DOLLS

October is a perfect time to have some fall or Halloween fun, and get creative with your dolls and dollhouses. For larger dolls, you can purchase vintage Halloween themed noisemakers and brooms for them to hold, and/or create vignettes using antique and vintage Halloween themed decorations. For dollhouses, why not decorate them for Halloween using spider webs, gravestones, and themed accessories? In this photo, Shop Owner Denny Plesea got creative by creating his own fall-themed background for his Barbie collection. Don't they look ready to pick apples? Have some fun and please send in your photos!
