When I was 4 years old we went to visit relatives in Florida and my Great Aunt Eve gifted me with an antique child’s manikin named Heidi. Heidi came dressed in a little red fur trimmed cape with matching skirt. I have no clue exactly how old she is, but I was told she was “an antique” when I was given her over thirty years ago.
That year for Halloween I borrowed Heidi’s outfit and went out as Little Red Riding Hood and a few years later my little sister did the same.
Now this year it was my daughter’s turn. Here she is posing with Heidi. Yes, I still have the doll. She has traveled with me over the years, and suffered some abuses along the way, but is still in pretty good shape.
