What a fun, sweet story. I liked the parts about the button eyes and stiched on mouths, but at the beginning it was just a tad too much repetative. Loved the characters and storyline.

Unique perspective in this piece. I was reminded a bit of the Toy Story movies. Well-written.
This delightful story is a very creative way to describe a girl growing up. The title is just right.

I can really dig this because my hair is turning grey. Fortunately my wife pretends not to notice!
Tender, sentimental writing

Nothing against the great stories I have read thus far, and I'm not done, but this is one of my favorites. Very creative POV. Well written and right on topic. Excellent. God bless.
Excellent story told from the dolls' perspective. And love that Grandma Irene had saved them for Val. One of my favorites this week.
Congratulations on placing in EC, Loren. This is a memorable story with excellent descriptions--as usual.

I absolutely love this unique perspective on growing up! Toys could tell us a lot, if they could speak! Congratulations--very well done!!

Love the dialog - especially when Ann slips into "valley girl". Such a sweet, sentimental story, creative and well written. Congratulations on your well-deserved EC, Loren.
