The Doll Chronicles

Pretty as a princess  


"The collectibles industry is, of course, abuzz with the potential of memorabilia made to honor the debut of a new real-live princess. Dolls, stuffed animals, paintings, statues, silverware, jewelry - every manner of item will be created to commemorate the birth. The dolls will be especially fun to discover, because this offers artists the chance to create a doll that will grow up as the actual model does."
