    Those are gorgeous! I remember that my mother had a small set when I was younger, but I honestly have no idea what ever happened to them. It wasn’t as extensive as the set you have, though. I think there were only 5 dolls in total.

    My aunt went on a mission trip years ago and brought some home. I remember being fascinated with them. Thanks for the memory! Teresa from NanaHood.com

    My mother-in-law went to Russia to help a family adopt a child. She brought a small set home as a gift for the kids and she found this one at a church fair!

    My kids used to collect these but their sets were much, much smaller. They had a few cute ones that were nesting cats and dogs too. They used to love playing w/them.
