||Birthday: April 4, 1927
Height: 36 cm
am one of the 12,000 dolls given to Japan in 1927, when a
friendship exchange through dolls was planned by Dr. Gulick and
many volunteers as an international goodwill project.
Now I have about 300 sisters throughout Japan. However, I have
heard many of my other sisters were destroyed as "enemy
dolls" during World War II. That event was very sad.
For 75 long years I have seen the wonderful children of Johnan Elementary School. I would like to introduce to today's children
the history of Johnan Elementary School that I have seen.
