At the moment, I'm having a busy time socially - so, have been unable to keep up-to-date with everything on our wonderful site and beyond (i.e., Zoe's Grecondale Blog) in terms of comments and postings. However, I just wanted to say a huge and heartfelt 'thank you' to Zoe (and her acknowledged collaborators/research materials) for the enormous amount of work she has put in, in creating such a professional, carefully constructed and meticulously researched article about 'Grecon Dolls' - it is a pleasure to read and will provide a resource for collectors for years to come. I appreciate it is a work in progress, but already it has laid the foundations enabling collectors (myself included of course) to learn more about these fascinating little dolls. Thank you, Zoe for all your hard work on our behalf.

Thank you for this lovely comment, Freda, I really appreciate it. It's not what I'd call hard work though - I'm happy as a pig in muck studying my Grecons!  But it is time-consuming, time just seems fly by when I'm examining, photographing and writing about them and hence the lack of progress just recently. Hopefully, I'll be able to get some more done over the coming few weeks. I must also mention, as you have, that I'm also getting much needed input from Rosemary and she and Claire Quick have provided me with some photographs I will be using too.

Yes, a BIG thank you, Zoe. They were my childhood delight, though I only had a few. Iwas careful to keep the for solo play as I instinctively knew that my friends and brother would be less attracted to them and perhaps'hurt' them. Inspite of loving them and helping out at my god-parents' dolls' hospital and dolls' house shop where they were sold, I never really knew much about Grecons and their history.

It's www.grecondale.com Maddy - nothing has happened there since the birthday party in the Triang Princess though.

Zoe, I've just read your ongoing history of Grecons and it is super!  This is what is needed for a book.  I also think it would do twice as well if some of your stories along with our other regular Grecon writers were to be included.  It would be a fun book then, read by adults and children alike!
