A mother started to play with second-hand dolls on a lark. She wasn’t trying to make a statement. She just wanted to create a doll that had a more natural look. Then the internet happened. From what I can tell, this whole thing started in January 2015. As of right now, just four months later, the Tree Change Doll Facebook page has over 300,000 likes.
The before and after pictures are remarkable. A little nail polish remover, a steady painting hand, and some hand made clothes have created a movement.
