Memorable dolls

       Looking toward his parents, Bob and Jan, in the audience during his talk at the Old Colorado City History Center Oct. 10, David Simpich holds up a doll Jan once made for her mother. The younger Simpich, who grew up watching and later helping as his parents expanded their Simpich Character Dolls business, is developing a “showcase” reflecting that history at the former design and manufacturing location in Old Colorado City. He had hoped to open at least part of the Showcase by December, but it’s now delayed until next year. See STORY, PHOTO.
