Hi Julien, No dear, I'm

Hi Julien, No dear, I'm planning for Golu purchase. Moreover in my In-laws place Golu is not customary. I just gave some ideas for Uma for purchase of dolls in Chennai.
What u said is correct, childhood stage is best. But I'm not able to do full justice to my son as I'm working. My maid and my MIIL takes care of him when I'm not in home.

Uma, if u r planning to

Uma, if u r planning to visit Chennai for Golu Purchase, then try something in Khadi emporium (Parry's Corner - Opp to high court) and Poompuhar in Mount Road. They have some good collections and have some theme based dolls like Meenakshi Thiru Kalyanam, Story telling like - Crow steeling vada from paati, pittu ku man sumandhu etc etc. Moreover the quality will be good too.
