This is book number 1 in the The Doll People series.
The 100-year-old Doll family, beautifully crafted china dolls passed down through four generations of girls in one American family, meet their new neighbors, the Funcrafts, a doll family made completely of plastic and delivered straight from the factory shelves.
Annabelle Doll is eight years old. She has been for over 100 years. Not a lot has happened to her, cooped up in the dollhouse, with the same doll people, day after day, year after year...until the Funcrafts move in. Now Annabelle has a friend. Sure, she's made entirely of plastic and she's living in the scariest room in the house, but she's an adventurer, and after 100 years of boredom, that's just what Annabelle needs.
