    The creepy Amish dolls are definitely creepy! I was trying to keep them out of view of my 5 year old who was peering over my shoulder. I am trying to figure out who or why anyone would purchase one of those dolls.

      Glad I am not the only one to think that, Amy…I was doing the same, shielding Aster’s eyes from it!

    I agree those dolls are too creepy for me. I don’t believe the rabbit age either

      Yea, I don’t know about the rabbit age, Mary, but I sure would need more proof before forking over $300!

      Creepy doll had been removed for awhile, as if someone had bought the only one, but then I looked again later and it was back up, so you must have been looking when it had been removed for a bit….

    Oh my goodness that doll is scary!! I wouldn’t buy that doll for my worst enemy let alone a child. It makes me think of that movie Chucky which I’ve never seen or will ever see.

    Hi Kevin,

    I just caught your critique of my listing on Etsy. I have been an antique dealer for more than 20 years and had a Sunday shop in The Black Angus Antique Market in Adamstown, PA. Over the years of going to lots of farm sales as well as having contacts within the community, I have both collected and sold quite a few of these animals and was even used and listed as a resource for the exhibition of same that took place at The Lancaster Quilt and Textile Museum organized by the Heritage Center of Lancaster County. The exhibition was called “Gentle Companions”. ( See Lancaster County, New Era, Friday October 1, 2004.) Needless to say, I and a few colleagues have studied these wonderful creatures and there are a number of criteria by which they are evaluated. Those that I offer for sale are often out of my own collection. If you should ever have any questions about an item, you can always contact me directly.
