  • "Dolls are a Christmas staple for many little girls, but besides being made in Santa’s workshop they are also made in factories all over the world; however, there’s only one place in the United States that still makes vinyl dolls and it’s in southern Indiana. In the small town of Heltonville, Indiana in Lawrence County sits an unassuming building, down a narrow drive; and inside is a last of its kind.  'We are the only United States manufacturing company, in dolls, that's left,' said Virginia Turner, owner and creator of Turner Dolls.  She makes dolls, and lots of them, but not as many as she used to." [WHAS 11]
