Doll Reference is a website designed as a guide to doll collecting and identifying dolls from the 1800s to the 1970s. The website contains a comprehensive list of doll manufacturers from Europe and the US.
The highlight of the website is a searchable database of doll manufacturers. Visitors can view an alphabetical list of manufacturers from a specific country, complete with years of activity.
The website concentrates on dolls made in the US, the UK, France and Germany.
A thorough collection of Barbie dolls from 1959 to 1976 can be viewed on the site. Photographs are accompanied by detailed information on the product, such as height and year of manufacture.
Barbie accessories and clothing options are also well documented in terms of photographs and information, including price guides for many products.
A number of Barbie’s friends and relations also feature, including boyfriend Ken and sister Skipper.
There is an active forum, which enables like-minded visitors to share advice and stories on doll collecting.
A portion of the website is devoted to Liddle Kiddle, miniature dolls created by Mattel in the mid to late 1960s. There is information regarding individual dolls and a small piece on the history of the brand.
