The concept for Bonikka dolls came out of a family tradition which began more than 100 years ago, with the gift of a doll from a Sri Lankan great grandfather to a cherished great grand daughter. It was a symbol of enduring love which deeply impressed that little girl, and her doll became an heirloom, and a sort of patrimony of family love. The name Bonikka, by the way, is the word for "doll" in the Sinhalese dialect spoken in Sri Lanka, where these dolls are made from all new material. Dear Little Dollies is happy to carry this line of dolls which have their root and purpose in good family values. Share the love!
