The website, http://www.museumofplay.org/collections/doll, was created by The Strong Museum of Play, a museum centered on collections and play. The doll collection, compiled by Margaret Woodbury Strong, consists of four categories:
- dolls manufactured before 1950
- dolls manufactured after 1950
- Barbie dolls, and
- Paper dolls.
The website provides broad historical information on each category of dolls and was created to publicize the museum’s doll collection and encourage visitors to the museum. The historical descriptions include the origins of various dolls from Germany, France, England, and the United States.
Controlled vocabulary: Barbie Doll, doll history, Doll Collection, Doll Museum, Museum of Play, paper dolls
