    Where to find Aruba doll?

    Has anyone ever seen the Aruba girl dolls sold in the shops airport? They look handmade, about 8-10" in height, various faces, outfits, hairstyles - rather inexpensive...little trinket kind of things sold across from the departure gates with all the other souvenirs. I'm trying to find somewhere online to buy one for Christmas.
    Any suggestions?

    i know the kind you mean
    they are soft, all fabric.
    i had 3, from aruba, bonaire and curacao.
    my aruba doll kind of looked like aunt jemima.

    i haven't seen it in years.

    the ones sold in the airport are more little girl where as mine was a "lady doll"

    did u try ebay?

    or use google and enter in the box fabric caribbean doll

    Thanks so much for looking and responding.
    Yes, I did try Ebay but nothing similar.
    The link above shows what is the closest I've seen, but not quite it - I'll keep searching using your recommendations.
    Yes, the ones in the airport look like young girls rather than adults. They are pretty cute.
