The dolls belonged to Vidi Chandra's mother, Diane Cox, who was tragically killed in the Carterton hot air balloon accident in January this year. The dolls were part of her parents estate.
" Much as I would love to tell you about these dolls I think my mum rescued them only 14 years ago so although they have been around while my kids were little I don't really know any thing about them.
My mum was marvelous at sewing and knitting so often rescued toys and fixed them up or made full sets of clothes for old dolls and gave them to grandchildren or kept them for children of neighbors to play with," said Mrs. Chandra.
Both dolls will be on display next week at the Napier Public Library. The name of display is "Early days".
