Clonette dolls are a type of collectible figurine that was popular in the 1970s and 1980s. They are characterized by their small size, usually around 6-8 inches tall, and by their distinctive clothing and hairstyles. Clonette dolls were made with a variety of materials, including plastic, vinyl, and cloth, and were produced in a range of poses, from standing to sitting, and from dancing to playing instruments. These dolls were marketed primarily to young girls and were often sold in sets that included multiple dolls with different clothing and accessory options. Despite declining in popularity in recent decades, Clonette dolls continue to be sought after by collectors of vintage toys and pop culture items. They are appreciated for their cute and playful appearance, as well as for the nostalgia they evoke for a simpler time.
I myself lost a twin in utero, and the connection to this story has become significant to my being and my need to be surrounded by human icons, dolls and figurines.
