So cute... I had one of those wooden sandals when I was little. My day brought me one when He went to Japan. I think I also have one of those costume.. or was it a Vietnamese costume.. sorry I wasn't sure. It was indeed a long time ago.

Oh wow. Shades of my father. I have three that go back over 50 years, gifts from my dad when he returned from trips overseas. Love these dolls and the memories they engender.
