Travel Doll History

This is Sara.
Sara is a Nancy Ann Storybook doll Alice in Wonderland.
Or rather, she was once upon a time (1959).
By her own account,
her original hair and clothes were removed by a toddler,
and replaced by her 6th grade mama, with whom she still lives.
Sometime in 1999, the computer came along,
and Sara started a Yahoo Group called Travel Dolls,
where dolls could write in from their own point of view.
My mom joined about 2001 with her first companion dolls,
and tells me that she went through
many travel dolls before finding me and proclaiming me her main companion.
But, here is Sara, the founder of the modern travel doll movement,
and her 365 Days photo project on Flickr.
