Nima-kai Hinamatsuri Traditions


Asian doll collection

Submitted by: Anita Scussel (Traverse City, Michigan, USA)

I am a doll collector and have a wide variety of dolls of varied cultures. This collection consists of dolls I have rescued from resale shops. They all have varied issues from either playtime accidents or simple disrespect of the doll’s value. I like to think I have given them a good home. The sweet facial expressions are just a bonus!

With Covid-19 isolation right now, it is really just myself and my husband that would see the dolls. We would just honor our daughter and two granddaughters remotely on March 3rd. I am hoping that next year things will open up and allow more participation with Hinamatsuri.
