Sometimes vintage is truly the best: like with furniture. And sometimes, it ain't: like, uh, with gnarly, black-furred, stuffed dolls from popular 1970's French children's book series.
Better to buy your Barbapapa plush dolls and fondue pots new, like on eBay, where you'll have a better chance of ex-France delivery than on Amazon.
