Have you seen the new remakes of the popular 1960s Flatsy Dolls? Think Barbie meets Gumby. These small, flat, rubbery bendy dolls measure just 4.75″ tall but, of course, have beautiful long hair you can comb and accessorize. A family friend just gave one to R. (thanks, Betty!) and R. is obsessed. She wants to collect them all (and at $6.75 apiece, I can’t argue with adding a few more to her collection- slowly). And maybe it will inspire R. to read one of my favorite childhood books- Flat Stanley (more on that another time). Buy your own Flatsy(s) at Schylling.com.
