A short bio for my FB Sasha friends
I bought a Sasha and a Sasha baby in 1973/4 for my daughter Yasmin, then 4 years old. Later, after she had tired of playing with them, I wrapped them up in material and put them carefully away in the doll’s cot in the attic, keeping an eye on them from time to time. Then, 4 years ago, I took them out of the attic to show them to my granddaughter, Hanna and I sort of fell in love. You all can relate to that, I am sure! Researching on line led me through eBay to other Sasha collectors and purveyors of delightful Sasha clothing and yes, eventually to Shelly’s website. Now I have 18 girls, 8 boys and 4 babies. I had 5, but one went home with Iona the other day!
This is Sasha ‘Yasmin’. She is an early 70s girl (71/72 according to the stringing). I love her dearly. She has a few teeth marks left by our first Cocker Spaniel, Strummer, which tells me that Yasmin actually played with her Sashas until she was about 12. We were dogless until then.
‘Peter’ is a baby Nightdress. They are both named after my children.
