“Stuck in time since the owner had departed this world, all was still in the old house and adjoining shop... until something started to stir. Slowly they opened their eyes and with slight hesitation, cautiously came up on to their feet: they looked around, but all was dark, draped in dust and curtains of cobweb. As the light started to brighten, a land of wonder appeared before them... and with a mixture of curiosity and uncertainty the three dolls started to explore.”
