How long have we had this love affair with Dolls?

Pearls of Wisdom:

New World Dictionary describes a doll as - "a child's toy, puppet, marionette, etc. made to resemble a human being."

1800 Georgian Period English Wooden

These English wooden dolls differ from the preceding periods in that their wood heads are covered in gesso and then painted. The head inset glass eyes that may be occasionally blue. They had flax of hair wigs. The wooden bodies are as previously made except that the end of the torso was pointed.
