Child’s Play


On a day trip to Mitchell, South Dakota, Mitra and Jenna were fortunate enough to stumble upon the Enchanted World Doll Museum. Not intended for faint of heart pediophobes (those who are deathly afraid of dolls), the castle is home to over 4,800 dolls exhibited in more than 435 unique dioramas.


Here, Miss No Name (pictured in the green burlap dress) is placed next to Poor Pitiful Pearl (to the left of Miss No Name) whom she is "very often confused with," as told by the placard next to the Miss’ feet.

Sadly, when you’re a girl with No Name, it seems to be no one knows your name.


Above, an example of a doll that would scare the wits out of someone suffering with pediophobia…or even facilitators, in this case.


As a finale to the tour, baby-faced Jenna attempts to blend in with baby-faced dolls.
