The discreet charm of Socialism... The USSR dolls!
If you were child in 80-s you remember the Soviet puppet, and maybe even played with them in childhood! Let`s come back for them!
All the dolls had something in common, because they were not similar to Barbie doll. The designers of the Soviets had their own vision of how should look «pretty doll».
Soviet puppets compared to Barbie seem to lose, but don't jump to conclusions! All mothers bought them to their daughters. And they were lucky!
