My aunt wants to start some sort of collection for my lil girl who will be 1 in about 6 weeks. I needs to be something she can buy my dd every year on her birthday and I will take over when she can no longer do it(she is in her 80's) Any ideas? She said something about dolls, like princess dolls. Needs to be something I can find every year. Thanks ladies!

Maybe start with dolls/stuffed animals and then when she gets older switch to something she loves.  If she loves dogs, little dog figurines. 

I'm not much of a collector though.

You can look up the Bradford Exchange things- or ou could do a pandora charm bracelet and get her a new charm for it every year...... Dolls are a great idea, but its hard to explain to a child why they cant play with them....Just a thought.

My aunt also started getting into tea several years ago, and she has several mini tea sets, those are very cute.

 What about glass dolls where you could keep in a china hutch or something,they have all sorts of different styles.My grandma and mother always gave me glass dolls ever since i was little.

My mom did porcelain dolls for me but that didn't start until I was older.
