There are so many different dolls out there. It's not so easy to focus a collection on one thing. At least I have that problem. Sometimes you fall in love with a doll totally different from your normal purchases. And sometimes the curiosity just gets the better of you first and then the love follows.
In the case of Peggy by Plasty, it was really more a curiosity. I had seen a few photos of her from other doll collectors. She did remind me of Francie. She's been called a Francie clone. Being a huge fan of Barbie's cousin, I wanted to know the difference for myself.
When I got my own Peggy doll, I realized that she had her own charm...Not enough, however, to make me want to have another. One reason is that I don't have a lot of tiny doll clothes that fit her nicely. She's got really small feet too. Sometimes I do wish she had a sister doll though, so she wouldn't be so alone. She looks so sullen all the time, as if she's eternally searching for a friend.
Maybe one day she'll end up with a fellow Plasty doll friend. The platinum-haired ones are cute. For now, she'll just have to settle hanging around different dolls, like Maru, also the only one of her kind in my collection.
And, of course, there's Francie...although Francie kinda makes her feel small...without meaning to, of course.
