All of the members of the Jenny Lind Doll Club would like to thank our fabulous, hard working dealers who helped to make Sunday’s show a huge success! They went above and beyond, enduring pouring rain during their move-in and move-out, and those that spent Sunday night at the Wyndham also had to deal with a power outage! So a large and lengthy round of applause for all of our 2017 dealers!!
The Jenny Lind Doll Club would also like to extend a heartfelt thank you to the owners of all the Izannah Walker dolls that were on loan for our very special exhibit! You made our 30th show one to remember! What a glorious way to celebrate Izannah Walker’s 200th birthday! We greatly appreciate your generosity and the time and effort you put into getting your dolls to the exhibit. Additionally, we’d like to acknowledge the former members of the Jenny Lind Doll Club, who throughout our 79 year history, have loved and cherished the Izannah Walker dolls in their own collections.
Last, but certainly not least, thank you to everyone who came to our 2017 show!!!

Queen Marlene’s Toy Museum and Friends is a children’s television show geared for young audiences ages 3 – 9 years old. The show takes place in a happy and friendly toy museum world. Queen Marlene is the host of the show and is ready to help children learn about everything from counting and colors to spelling and the history of toys. The museum is Queen Marlene’s classroom as she takes the students through the exhibits, explaining and teaching along the way. The Toy Museum’s Royal Theater is her playground as she introduces live entertainment; including an assortment of acts, dance moves, music, folksy humor, slapstick and other fun and educational shenanigans to delight the children. Other areas of the show include visits to the Arts & Crafts Room, the Library, the Gift Shop and the Café, to name a few. If you love laughter, good times, surprise and learning, this show is for you. Episodes will have recurring puppets and performers, as well as special guest appearances.
