UKRAINE, NETHERLANDS, ALGERIA and LEBANON DOLLS (and Planganologist)

PLANGANOLOGIST.
A few years ago I read that a planganologist is the name given to a person who collects dolls, and that it comes from the Greek word "plangon" meaning doll.  I have never heard of this term since so I have looked it up on Google, and sure enough it says that a Planganologist is a collector of dolls, but it does not mention "plangon" being the Greek word for doll.  So now you know (if you didn't already know before!)  I like to know these things!
Here I am listing dolls from UKRAINE, NETHERLANDS, ALGERIA and LEBANON.
For more pictures and information, please see the website.  Thank you.  Carole.
