I have already written about my first Alberto. I was not aware of the later GOTZ production of Sasha dolls until I began searching for Sasha dolls on eBay in 2000. I was completely captivated by Alberto and immediately adopted him. Unfortunately, my daughter also fell for his charms and she spirited him away to live with her in Paris.
Recently, I discovered this Alberto on eBay and I adopted him on the spot. He is factory new, and never displayed. His chalk board, sponge and pencil were still in their factory wrapping and Alberto still wore his original factory hairnet. His tube is flawless.
So once again I have an Alberto to delight me, and his sister, Maria, is thrilled to have him back in the family.
