This site was create because I was in search of a 1960's African American Leslie Bride Doll to replace one that had been given to me by my mother.
Needless to say, there was little to almost no information to be found on this doll and it looked like my search would continue to be fruitless. I did find a Black Doll Forum but there did not seem like there was much interest in the Madame Alexander line.
Ebay became my primary source for my search and Voila! One day, there she was! I purchased the doll of my childhood and was well-pleased with my purchase.
However, after receiving my doll, my interest in the Madame Alexander Leslie and Cissy dolls still intriqued me and I felt there were other collectors who would also be interested in more information on a beloved collectible.
My website will be dedicated to vintage collectors and new, limited editions Madame Alexander dolls.
Please feel free to visit my forum, blogs, and members page.
