It's definitely no surprise that I love Victorian dresses and Victorian dolls.  So, you can imagine how thrilled I was to see how many Victorian French Fashion Dolls the Strong National Museum of Play had in their doll collection.  It's unbelievable.

There are so many I couldn't decide which was my favorite.  I LOVED them all and would like to see all of them.  They're all simply exquisite.

Here's a few of my favorites:

After seeing just a small handful of fashion dolls here and then seeing the rest of the fashion dolls collection at the The Strong National Museum of Play I bet you'd have a hard time choosing, too.
