Did you know that dolls for Amish girls have no faces?

"Our understanding is that years ago, most of the dolls for little girls were rag dolls without faces. The Amish have retained this custom. We believe the reason is similar to the refusal to have pictures of people and is linked to the second commandment. (Exodus 20:4-6) At an early age children are learning not to have images, likenesses, idols."

Come to Shipshewana Indiana June 5,6,7 to learn more about the Amish culture, from the moment you enter the town you’ll feel like you stepped back in time.

Cool Re: Amish Dolls Have no Faces

I must admit, you are doing a very good job of posting "eye-catching" posts on the Shipsewanna Show.
And, your note on faceless dolls is something our culture would do well to mimick....but, it's too late I fear.

Thanks Frank,
How about coming up for the show, I don't think we've got anyone from your neck of the woods yet. Someone from Georgia registered the the other day, we've got Florida and Oregon too.

Would be a nice trip!
We've got a son and grandchildren in Dayton. We drove up there 2 years ago to do the Young's Jersey Dairy Show in Yellowsprings, OH. Was a lot of fun!
