Poppen & Teddy-Beer Museum Article #1

An article about antique dolls installed in DeeBeeGee’s Virtual Black Doll Museum is in the Winter 2021 issue of Poppen & Teddy-Beer, which is distributed in the Netherlands and printed in Dutch. Jolie van der Klis, a contributing writer for the magazine, shared photos of the magazine cover, the table of contents, and the pages of the article. Jolie also graciously translated the article from English to Dutch. 

The article explains the museum initiatives, shares some of the first antique doll installations, and encourages readers to contribute doll photos and associated information for future museum installations. 

Plans are in place for additional follow-up articles for subsequent issues of Poppen & Teddy-Beer, which will cover other doll installation categories and provide additional global exposure for the museum.

  1. It’s an honour Debbie, to have your Articles in ‘our’ Magazine!
    I’m sorry your name was spelled “Debby” in the “Inhoudsopgave” (Content-page..) They may have thought “Debbie with “ie” is Dutch, in English language they write “y” instead of “ie”” (Or something….) (While that is not always the case..)
    Wishing you a wonderful 2022!

    Hartelijke groeten (that is what we say in Dutch, ‘greatings from the heart’ :)) from the small town of Hilversum,

  2. Hartelijke groeten, Jolie!

    The name misspelling is not a problem since it is spelled correctly in the article. Thank you for explaining what might have caused the misspelling.

    I am looking forward to contributing additional articles about the other museum categories and possibly a few non-museum-related (but doll) articles in the future.

    Happy New Year!


  3. Thank you Debbie! I am looking forward to your next article! Many of the Dolls in your articles, are unknown over here, have never been sold in The Netherlands. Only Ebay and Rubylane may have changed that a little, on the other hand: these Dolls are still rarely seen. It is great to learn from your articles!
    Hartelijke groeten,
