Kokeshi[edit]

Any reason why Kokeshi is not listed here? --21:11, 29 September 2006 (UTC)

Almost five years later, they are now mentioned. :) Siawase (talk) 17:53, 16 June 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for the correction. Shannernanner 10:26, 7 October 2006 (UTC)

China Doll[edit]

Could someone please write an article on porcelain dolls so I can link to it from the China Doll (disambiguation) page. --Gbleem 23:44, 2 November 2006 (UTC)

China doll is now a full-fledged article. Siawase (talk) 17:53, 16 June 2011 (UTC)

Poor English[edit]

Poor English and Ugly Format This article needs a total rehaul. Aside from being poorly written, and including long lists of meaningless names, the photo layout is awful. --Gilabrand 18:58, 12 April 2007 (UTC)

I have rewritten the lead section, resized and rearranged the pictures, and added a category for doll collections and museums which people are invited to add to.

Cornhusk Dolls[edit]

There is no Wikipedia page on Cornhusk or Corn Husk (two words) dolls anywhere. Cornhusk dolls are culturally important especially in Native American Indian cultures (and they now exist in many other parts of the world as well). We need something on Wikipedia about Cornhusk dolls. At least a stub. I don't know how to set up a new page myself but maybe someone could quickly do this. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 72.93.5.244 (talk) 02:18, 30 September 2010

Yes check.svg Done Corn husk doll. --Shirt58 (talk) 10:31, 28 September 2011 (UTC)
Great job! Corn husk dolls were mentioned in this article briefly, but I expanded a bit based on the new article and added a link to it. Siawase (talk) 15:48, 28 September 2011 (UTC)

Roman doll[edit]

This was unsourced and a bit too detailed for an overview article like this, but I didn't want it to just get lost so I copied it here:

One doll, found near Prati in Rome, was made of ivory and lay beside her owner who had died at the age of eighteen. Next to the doll was a small box, also made of ivory, containing tiny combs and a silver mirror. The doll had rings on her fingers and held a tiny key, which unlocked the box.

Doll can be also a toy for dog[edit]

Dogs playing with dolls is quite common too. Its not just human toy as stated in first sentence of article. There are also images on internet with dogs carrying dolls in their mouth, such as http://puppysites.com/deluxe/k-ninedobie.jpg and http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7047/6983586919_f96cfcb6a7_z.jpg. In fact, my pet dog loved to carry a doll in its mouth and toss/fetch it. Even zoo animals like monkeys are known to play with dolls. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 98.169.164.126 (talk) 11:12, 24 March 2012 (UTC)

Miniature Doll House Dolls and Doll Houses[edit]

I thought the Doll article was very well done. I would like to see a section on Doll House Dolls and Dollhouses, and a link to a separate article on Doll House Dolls and Doll Houses.

Thank you — Preceding unsigned comment added by Itsadollworld (talkcontribs) 11:45, 4 February 2014 (UTC)

There is a link to Dollhouse. If you have information supported references about dolls made specifically for a dollhouse, then feel free to add it! --Derek Andrews (talk) 15:22, 4 February 2014 (UTC)
