Hi, I’m Ashley Brooke, also known as Kewpie83. Confessions of a Doll Collectors Daughter started out as an easy way for me to improve my writing and share my unique collection of dolls. Since then, it’s grown into so much more. Confessions of a Doll Collectors Daughter is a passion project that has brought me and other collectors happiness and a sense of camaraderie in a hobby that isn’t always understood by the masses.
I’ve been a doll collector all of my life. The daughter of a doll collector, I was raised around the hobby. I started actively collecting when I was in my mid-teens. Concentrating on Barbie’s little sister Skipper, I actively began searching out dolls to add to the dolls I’d gathered over the years as birthday and Christmas gifts. Since then, my collection has branched out quite a bit. I have a little bit of everything, it seems, in my collection of over 500 dolls.
Blogging has allowed me to check off many bucket list items. It’s brought me to industry events like New York Toy Fair and Sweet Suite. it’s allowed me to be published in magazines like Dolls, Fashion Doll Quarterly and Complete Wellbeing. And it’s one of the main reasons I decided to dive into the crazy world of YouTube, where I’ve gained a bit of a following among the doll collecting community.
