Lazy Days of Summer

Summer Newsletter 2018

Man it got hot here! BUT, it IS a dry heat. With that said, I hope that our temperatures won't deter anyone from attending the festivities in Phoenix this summer. I will be a Rowbear's National Dolll Festival and hope to see you all there!

But before that, let us not forget...

World Doll Day - June 9th
We have had many events submitted this year. They are listed on both and We are still lacking in donations, though, which has me wondering. All that is required is to email me a picture or pictures of your donated item to post on the page. You choose the winner from the emails you receive during the day and then mail out the item to the winner. In the meantime, attention is brought to your business via facebook and email. Cut off is Wednesday, June 6th so get your phone out, take a picture and email it to: along with 

  • Name

  • The email you would like to use to receive entries for the raffle

  • Website and/or facebook page url ( or

  • Phone number (for me only, just in case)

There is still time to print up some coloring cards to hand out during your travels that day or use the cards to make bookmarks or other items. Cards are business card size,10 on a sheet <Click Here>  (Thanks Judy Gonzalez for this great idea!)

Why We Need Dolls In Our Lives

Posted May 23, 2018 in Dolls

by Ruby Lane

Why We Need Dolls In Our Lives:  No culture has been without dolls. In some societies, the doll figures that remain seem to be more idol or ritual figures, but the same cultures refer to dolls as children’s toys.  They might be very simple compared to their idols or decorative figures, maybe a decorated twig or bit of cloth, but they serve children as dolls. Dolls serve all kinds of functions for adults, too, and tell us about the cultures of people who no longer exist.  They inspire artists and musicians, decorate crèches and other religious institutions, help solve crimes, and serve as our memorials and portraits.
