Lynda is very fond of Roddy dolls, by in England during the 1950s. Roddy was known for its hard plastic walkers, many dressed in Scottish kilts. For more on Roddy, visit Facebook or go to DollReference.com.

To say collecting in the sense of the word would be over the past few years,; however, I have always loved dolls.
What are your favorite types of dolls?
I absolutely love Roddy dolls due to having one as a child in the 60's, and my collection has one doll that stands out. She took me years to find.

Have your tastes changed over the years
Over the years I still in the main look for Roddy dolls but will buy others that have that 'take me home' look about them.
Just now it is Barbie dolls and fashion dolls. I like to get a box of unloved dolls, strip them, wash them and bring them back to life.
Do you sew for your dolls?
Are you looking for anything in particular?
Not now as I found the Roddy I wanted, now it's a case of who needs my help in making them lovable once more
