Short Introduction 
  Helma's Top Dolls is a webshop specialized in collector dolls, like the
  Annette Himstedt dolls. Helma's Top Dolls took over the activities of
  former Kay Poppenatelier which was a doll shop in the centre of 
Gorinchem in the Netherlands. After Annette Himstedt stopped the 
  production of her dolls we closed our shop in 2009. We went on with our  webshop under a new better fitting name "Helma's Top Dolls". Ofcourse with the same passion and service like you used to have when it was Kay Poppenatelier.

Here a short impression of what we experienced the last decades:

     several other brand dolls.

  On 6 September 2007 we went to the 
  Annette Himstedt Manufaktur in 
  Paderborn, Germany, with a touring car
  full of doll collectors . It was a very
  special and wonderful day.
