Celebrate World Doll Day


World Doll Day

World Doll Day was founded 14 June 1986 by dollmaker Mildred Seeley to spread a message of happiness and love to all who collect dolls.

The day is celebrated on the second Saturday of June with the gift of a doll to a special someone (child or someone young at heart). The day is not owned by any company, club or person and no fees, permission or obligations are required.

Many doll collectors' clubs and organizations arrange a local exhibit, doll sale or doll show, or seminar for their group on this day as part of the festivities.

About the logo

The logo was created by artist Boots Tyner and represents a child with a German bisque doll -- her gift on this day that celebrates dolls. The logo was designed for free use to promote this special day and may be reproduced.
