If you’re into crusty, quirky, handcrafted things, you will love these dolls. If you’re not, you might find them a little creepy and be glad you don’t want something that costs $95 at Kido (a fabulous NYC store, one of the real pioneers of stylish baby). My hunch is, a little girl will dig their oddness in a world of Barbies and Ariels (of which she already has a roomful). And you can’t say Donna Dolls don’t have . . . personality. For me, there’s something great about them. They make you smile; they look smart; each one is unique. It’s like the kind of toy your grandmother would have made you in the nineteenth century, a dollie from the Donner Party.
