Embracing the Misconceptions of Online Doll Shoppers May Help Sales

From far and wide, it has come to my attention that there are interestingly notable similarities among many vintage plastic dolls to the point where categorizing them or distinguishing them from one another has become somewhat of a loose term when tagging dolls for online shopping.

From a doll collector's standpoint, it may seem arbitrary to have a doll pop up in a search that it may or may not belong in.  However, the idea of potential customers distinguishing dolls themselves incorrectly leads reason to believe that providing this gateway to your doll for sale is in fact logical.

Dolls' Similar Features:

_Wig glued to head
_ Movable arms and head
_ Measuring 7.5 inches tall

Doll Groups:

Don't get me wrong, how dolls are valued does vary, especially in consideration of their condition: i.e. "still in original box" vs. "has slight wear".

To conclude, it is more than coincidence that these dolls resemble one another; they did all originate from companies that started producing dolls around the 40's and 50's.  The use of plastic in doll making was right at the beginning.  In hindsight, this set the foundation for dolls made today.
