Junior Collectors


Junior Collectors are young people (under 18) who are affiliated with a UFDC club, though Junior Collectors are not officially members of UFDC. Junior Collectors are the doll collectors of the future, so UFDC has special programs just for them!

  • There are Junior Collector’s events held each year at the national Convention.
  • Some local clubs sponsor Junior Collector events and some even have on-going Junior Collector groups.
