    Hi Dowrgi,

    Out of the five choices you gave, I would agree that options 1 & 2 look the more likely, when thinking it through logically.

    But, I still wouldn’t completely write off option 3 – the Christian angle of blessing one’s doll. Apparently, today, the custom of baptising dolls has been revived in Venton Bebibell and Figgy Dowdy’s Wells (see link) :

    Thanks,
