“A little girl with a good imagination can make one cheap, stuffed doll do all the things that a dull-witted girl needs an army of expensive, mechanical dolls to accomplish. A mechanical doll will say, “Play with me,” and suck its thumb. A cheap, stuffed doll will deliver Pericles’ funeral oration while cooking pretend chicken Provençal for seven stuffed guests.”
