My daughter got one last ear and never played with it. It’s on display in her room. NOW she wants another one this Christmas and says she likes looking at her doll but not playing with it. Should I even bother getting her another one?? It’s really the only things she asked for so far except books.

I'd get it. There's nothing wrong with being a doll collector.

Ok my parents gave in and got me and my sister one but we played with it for like a day and were over it. Its too expensive for a doll, historical or not.

I think that's cute. She just likes to decorate with them not play with them.

so the dolls stay in beautiful condition:)

i dont see the big deal in not playing with them but i probably wouldn't get her another one. if she wants to save up for half of one maybe i'll pay for the other half for her but that would be about it.

Yes. They're very collectible and my daughters have around 4-5 of them. They like looking at them as well.

Yes... maybe if the store is close by you can take her to attend some of the events, have lunch with the doll, or the doll hair salon there. It's not playing in the everyday sense but will get more use out of the doll.

I see nothing wrong with it just sitting. I collected porcelain dolls as a child. My grandmother did as well and those have all been passed down.
