A doll collection is not always just about assembling a grouping of favorite playthings. Sometimes it signifies more. The individual who donated this Madame Alexander doll to the National Museum of Play worked as a real estate agent. Each time she sold a house, she treated herself to a new doll for her collection. So her collection of dolls expresses not just the collecting impulse; it also represents, in a playful way, a successful career and considerable financial achievement.
