Blue-eyed Dolls "Blossom"

There are two Blue-eyed Dolls at Honcho Elementary School. One of these is Blossom from the 1990s, and the other one is called Amanda. Blossom from the 1920s is always at the Yokohama Doll Museum.

I'll give an explanation about Blossom from the 1990s. This year is the fourth year since she came to Honcho Elementary School.

So how did Blossom come to Honcho Elementary School?

It is because a person from the Doll Museum and Mr. Gulick, 3d, who lives in America, made for us another Blossom to replace Blossom from the 1920s.

Blossom from the 1920s is not at Honcho Elementary. She is being kept at the Doll Museum.

Not only Blossom from the 1920s, but also other dolls, are kept safely at the Doll Museum.

Today on March 3, she returns to Honcho Elementary School only one time each year.

Blossom's real father, Mr. Gulick, says he likes Hina Matsuri (Doll Festival), so we gathered together at Honcho Elementary School the dolls of Yokohama City in Kanagawa Prefecture.

Also, there is an Ichimatsu Doll sent from Japan.

Blossom, together with her younger sister and Amanda, have many friends.

With these friends, they watch over everyone at Honcho Elementary School.
