During childhood, our best friends are dolls, teddy bears or toy soldiers. They are our path to the world of fantasy, a source of comfort when we don’t feel well, and the only ones who truly understand us. They travel with us all over the world; they are our confidantes!

In the past, dolls were a link between man and nature. People attributed dolls with supernatural abilities. Later, people began to use dolls as toys – at first, they worked with simple, abstract designs; but with time, they aimed for an ever- ‐ greater precision and realistic representation of people. Today, dolls are not just a replica of mankind, but represent his ideal – an ideal that children try to emulate.
