As kids, my sister and I has life-sized, stuffed Raggedy Ann and Andy dolls that had elastic on the bottoms of their feet. Our first dances were with these floppy
dolls affixed to us. We also had a vibrant Raggedy Ann sheet set, the colors and patterns were busy and beautiful.

It is no wonder that the giant munecas in Oaxaca make me smile. Many of the ones that are out regularly have several different outfits. And, most spend much of their time dancing on the shoulders of the strong people whose faces sometimes appear from the folds of their satin blouses.
