The Doll People’s Christmas

Christmas is Annabelle Doll’s favorite time of year. She loves celebrating with her family, and she especially loves all the beautiful decorations Kate and Grandma Katherine put up in the dollhouse. She can’t wait to have Tiffany and the rest of the Funcrafts over for their very first Christmas. But when the angel topper for the Dolls’ tree breaks, Annabelle is convinced the holiday is ruined. And things only get worse when Kate and Nora decide to use the dolls to create a nativity scene downstairs, meaning Annabelle won’t be able to keep her special traditions at all! But as Christmas spirit fills the Palmers’ home, Annabelle realizes that all she needs for a truly perfect holiday is to share it with her friends and family.
