Barbara Kouri has been talking dolls for more than 30 years — and it just doesn’t get old, she said. “I love my club,” she said. “It’s my favorite thing to do for fun. I enjoy being with the ladies and talking dolls. My sister said that she has never seen me so happy as when I’m doing a doll show.” On Saturday, the Burbank resident’s Happy Dolling Doll Show celebrates its 28th year at the Glendale Civic Auditorium. A charter member and the second president of the Jewel City Doll Club, Kouri gathered her experience helping her club with their shows before setting out with a friend to start one of their own. The Glendale show will feature antique and collectible dolls, modern dolls, fashion dolls, bears, old toys and miniatures, old and new doll clothes and related items.

A couple of weeks ago, an article in the business section of the L.A. Times caught my eye. I normally don't read the business section, but it was the accompanying photograph that first got my attention. It showed Mattel's latest line of fashion dolls — the Monster High girls. These are not the Barbies I played with as a kid, or even the Barbies my daughter plays with today. No, these looked more like miniature hookers. What's with the trend to make dolls look like they just stepped off Hollywood Boulevard?
