When in China...you never know what you'll come across. I guess being the world's most populous country means you have to have something for everyone, right? I guess there are people that would want these dolls for, I don't know, the sake of collecting communist dolls?
Sometimes when I see stuff like this, I wonder what the global market is for a product like this. Perhaps they would do really well on Etsy? I mean, they're not bad, it just that they seem to be a bit unpractical. Unless perhaps, you want to teach your children about the People's Liberation Army.
