UFDC Museum Wish List - January 2021

Our Museum is growing, and we are proud to be able to share the story of dolls with the world. But we do still have gaps in the collection that you may be able to help fill.

We have an amazing museum filled with wonderful dolls, but there are still gaps and genres that are missing. We are always looking to add dolls to the collection to fill in these areas. We will always consider dolls that fit our mission statement and requirements.

Gifts of artifacts are tax-deductible as allowed by law. For those wishing to make a gift(s), please contact the Collection Committee through the UFDC central office: Photographs and descriptions are of great help in always assessing generous offers.
