I bought my first Simpich Santa many years ago. I think it may have been 20 years ago... I came across the picture above on the internet. I have this set of Santas packed away. (I haven't thought about the Santas for some time.) Since stumbling on the Santas I decided to check out what was new at Simpich... I was sad to find out the production of the Simpich dolls has stopped with the retirement of Bob and Jan Simpich. Now their son has opened a museum of the Simpich dolls and a Puppet Theater at the same site... To find out more go the the site. I need to find my Santas and take good care of them.
