P.S. I thought it was the cutest thing when I showed my friend my new Amish doll and she said to me, " are you going to put a face on her". So after a giggle, I explained to her that:
The Amish are characterized by deep religious beliefs and their hard working, community-minded spirit. They shun any fancy trappings of dress or lifestyle and, therefore, are often referred to as the ‘plain people’. Some of their religious beliefs and even their ways of life were sewed and stitched into the toys they made for children. One of the characteristics of these dolls is that they are faceless. It was written in the Bible in the Book of Deuteronomy that one was not allowed to produce any human images or likenesses.
