In The Doll World (ITDW) doll podcast and YouTube channel is excited to share an interview with the beautiful and fascinating,  Dr. Sabrina Thomas. https://www.inthedollworld.com/storytellers.htmlSabrina takes her doll collecting very seriously! Not only is she an avid doll collector; but, she is also studying dolls as part of her degree program as a social scientist in the department of Education at Duke University! She shares with us her wonderful journey into doll collecting, which started out with only 3 dolls and the stories behind those first 3 dolls, are just as  fascinating as Dr. Thomas herself. Sabrina also shares the beautiful story of how her encounter with a Marla Perkin's book which then led to a conversation with Ms. Perkins herself is what truly ignited her pursuit of doll collecting, study and research on dolls, their history and the impact they have on our world and so much more in this wonderful conversation.A little fun side note: Dr. Thomas was introduced to us by her daughter, Yaa who suggested we have her on the show and not just because she is such an avid fan of ITDW as you will hear during the show, but most importantly she is very knowledgeable and has such a  wealth of information to share with with us and our audience.Sabrina has received several grants and fellowships to research the ethnography of children’s play with a specific focus on children’s doll play. Her current research project includes an examination of black doll production and how children negotiate the presence or absence of a black doll in their play space.Thank you Sabrina for educating us about dolls, their history, and how doll history has impacted the racial history of the United States.If you would like to know more about Sabrina and her studies, you may reach her on Facebook at, https://www.facebook.com/sabrina.thomas.92123​Follow  and like us on  Facebook and Instagramhttps://www.facebook.com/inthedollworldhttps://www.instagram.com/inthedollworld/ #InTheDollWorld #inthedollworldpodcast #sabrinathomas #dollcollecting #dollhistory #georgettetayloritdw #tammyfisheritdw 
In The Doll World (ITDW) doll podcast and YouTube channel continues its PRIDE Month Celebration with a powerful interview with Jacquie Anderson-Frazier, owner of the online store KittiJ's Boutique. Jacquie is also a diorama maker and doll customizer.We found Jacquie to be beautifully powerful and honest. She was also very truthful--including telling us that she doesn't understand people's fascination with other people's sexual orientations. She described the fascination "perverted'!Jacquie also shared wonderful stories about her doll journey. She loved dolls as a little girl. When she grew up, she bought them for her daughter and then her granddaughter.  Jacquie was a lover of miniatures. So, she collected lots of doll-sized items. Then one day, she found a doll that re-ignited her love of dolls. From there she went on to collect dolls. She was unhappy that the variety of Black dolls was less than the the variety of white dolls; so, she began purchasing white dolls and using their clothes and accessories to redress and customize Black dolls! Jacquie dated men until 1985.  She described her "coming out" as boring because she said she always knew she liked women; "It just was." Jacquie said. "I never felt I owed an explanation for my sexual preference".Jacquie also confirmed that relationships are basically the same: she met a wonderful woman, they dated, they fell in love, and they got married. They have been married for over 16 years and have been in a relationship for almost 30 years. Jacquie didn't think the country would accept queer marriages in her lifetime. She and her wife have 3 children and 9 grandchildren.To learn more about Jacquie and her creations, visit her KittiJ's Boutique at: https://www.facebook.com/KittiJs-Bout...SHOW LESS
In The Doll World (ITDW) doll podcast continues its PRIDE Month celebration with an intimate interview with HeXtian, doll customizer and YouTube sensation. HeXtian is a tremendous doll influencer: over 1Million people follow his YouTube show!  Listen at https://www.inthedollworld.com/podcasts.html One of the most powerful things HeXtian shares is his fear! He speaks about how he loves to dress in a variety of clothing styles--including the glamourous 1950s and Drag. If he chooses to go out dressed in these styles, he has to first make sure he is safe. Safety includes: being with a group of people he can trust; carefully choosing where he goes; and, deciding whether the location has a restroom that he can safely use. He understands that a wrong choice can lead to anything from being treated rudely, to being assaulted, to even being murdered. His fear reminds us of the fear marginalized people have experienced--and continue to experience--all over the world.As a brilliant artist, who empowers others through customized dolls, he continues to find inspiration for his artistry in his favorite childhood shows, the LGBTQ+ community, and celebrities. He also shares his Filipino heritage in his shows. HeXtian also speaks about how his art is a safe way to express his queerness and love for Drag. He finds strength in sharing the beauty and glamour of Drag in his customizations.To see HeXtian's work please visit his YouTube channel at https://www.youtube.com/hextianUPDATES: Subscribe to our website for updates and to enter into the doll giveaways: https://www.inthedollworld.com/subscribeInstagram: https://www.instagram.com/inthedollworldBuzzsprout: https://inthedollworld.buzzsprout.com/​Website: https://www.inthedollworld.com​​​​​​Linktree: https://www.linktr.ee/inthedollworld​​SHOW LESS

www.inthedollworld.com/creators   In The Doll World, doll podcast and doll YouTube channel, shares an inspirational and passionate interview with Amy Jandrisevits, doll creator and founder of A Doll Like Me.  Join us as we talk about the amazing cloth dolls that Amy creates for children with limb differences, birthmarks, facial anomalies, and albinism and so many more and how truly important it is for these children to be represented in a doll ...."because everyone deserves to look into the sweet face of a doll and see their own".Amy talks about her journey from a child who helped he mother find dolls for underrepresented children, to becoming a social worker who worked with children with cancer.  She was also a passionate doll collector and had created a few bald dolls for chemotherapy patients. She noticed how those dolls could help a child get through tough times and find a way to connect and nurture themselves when the dolls looked like the children. Amy shares many stories about how her dolls came to be, one touching story was the true catalyst to creating A Doll Like Me, when a  friend of a friend saw a doll that looked like her daughter, but the friend's daughter's leg had just been amputated and she asked Amy if she could make a doll that looked like her daughter with the amputated leg. That led to the doll being posted on social media and within 2 months she had over 200 orders and the rest, as they say, is Doll Herstory.Every doll makes a difference;  and, every doll is created and hand sewn with love.  To find out how you can support and sponsor a doll for a child, please visit Amy and A Doll Like Me at her Facebook page at www.adolllikeme.com Follow and like In The Doll World, doll podcast and doll YouTube channel, on social media.
