March Highlights: Women's History, Irish Americans, and Umbrellas!

March 1st and what topics are up for this month? 

Women's History Month is celebrated in the United States, the United Kingdom, and Australia. Rubbing my hands together. We know Barbie's birthday is March 9. She debuted on that day in 1959. I'll also look at other fashion doll lines lead by a female doll.

Irish American Heritage Now is the time to bring out your Irish Barbies. Do you have any other Irish / Irish American playscale dolls or action figures? Bring them out. This can be their month to shine.

What is handy to have on deeply sunny days or under shadowy clouds ... why umbrellas! Yes! March is the month to celebrate the humble, homely, and handy device that protects us from rain and from the sun. Umbrellas are also fun accessories for our dolls and action figures. Do you have those cheesy paper flat umbrellas or the more elaborate vinyl ones with spokes? I will hunt out mine and share them here. Paper to plastic, they add that finishing touch to our playscale ensembles.

I have "leftover" posts from February: a post about cornrowed hair in playscale, Sindy furnishings, and Jazz Diva Barbie part 2. There are other items and body parts that may be highlighted in March, but I choose the above three as most interesting to me. (Well, National Craft Month also is a March event, but I am not sure how much time I will have to be creative.) 

Are there any March events that you will be doing ... regarding playscale dolls and action figures? Write in and share. Maybe I should expand my list ....
