The 100-year-old Doll family--beautifully crafted china dolls passed down through four generations of girls in one American family--meet their new neighbors, the Funcrafts, a doll family made completely of plastic and delivered straight from the factory shelves. Annabelle Doll is eight years old--she has been for over a hundred years. Not a lot has happened to her, cooped up in the dollhouse, with the same doll people, day after day, year after year...until the Funcrafts move in. Now Annabelle has a friend. Sure she's made entirely of plastic and she's living in the scariest room in the house, but she's an adventurer, and after a hundred years of boredom, that's just what Annabelle needs.
