Dolls kicked out of public housing


UPI News Service, 07/26/2006 

An elderly Connecticut woman's doll collection is getting the boot from the Greenwich Housing Authority because it takes up too much room.

Emily Gibbons says she is now only allowed to keep 20 or so of her nearly 200 dolls in her apartment in Agnes Morley Heights.

Housing officials said the dolls, knickknacks and other belongings crowded her unit, blocked windows and created an overall safety hazard. They threatened to evict the 73-year-old woman if she did not take steps to reduce the clutter, the Greenwich Times reported.

Though Gibbons has some well-known pieces, such as Madame Alexander dolls, the majority of them are secondhand pieces that Gibbons bought because they were cute or resembled real babies, the newspaper said.

Gibbons said that she misses having her dolls surround her. Now, she just wants to see whether she can find a new home for her dolls. "I want them to go to someone who loves them," she told the newspaper.
