The charm of a Sasha doll is its ability to evoke a sympathetic response in both children and adults. We see in Sasha some reflection of our own moods and emotions. Children are especially drawn to the "woeful child" aspect of the face because children are not always smiling -- not always blissfully happy. So a Sasha doll becomes an understanding companion. Not one of those perpetually smiling dolls with a gleaming white perfect smile.
Watching children interact with a Sasha doll is an amazing experience -- a door opening into a hidden and magical world. The world of Sasha.
As adult collectors we can enter that world as well and recapture some of that innocence -- some of that quality of the woeful child we all once were.
