On view through September 3, La Musee des Poupees is featuring over a hundred dolls and action figures, all fashioned in the image of iconic stars representing the glory days of the silent film era to the blockbusters of today. Many are familiar faces you know from Mattel's collector series like Elizabeth Taylor, Grace Kelly, and Audrey Hepburn Barbies. But there are a few surprises.

While this is not the over-the-top Barbie exhibit we saw across town, it is a more intimate event doll lovers will find to be charming and worth the trip. For those of ou unfamiliar with this museum, the price of admission also includes a stroll through their "history of dolls" permanent exhibition.

Once again I have posted a great deal of photos for those of you who cannot make it to Paris to see this. I've also noted below, the museum's website so that you can keep up with all the museum's activities should you ever visit this neck of the woods. There is also a resale shop for vintage dolls (on site and online), clothes & accessories, books and cards. Appraisal and restoration service is also available here.
