dolls (figurines) (figurines, statues, ... Visual and Verbal Communication (hierarchy name))

 

Note: Figurines representing humans or animals, including but not restricted to those intended as toys for children, usually girls, or as collectibles for adults. Dolls are commonly in the form of a baby or woman, often with changeable clothes; they may have moveable arms and legs. Doll may be made of cloth (rag dolls), wood, clay, porcelain, wax, paper, plastic, celluloid, corn husks, or other materials. Dolls may also be figurines used for ceremonial, religious, or decorative purposes. Archaeological evidence suggests that dolls were the first playthings; they have been found in Babylonian and Egyptian tombs from ca. 3000 BCE. In ancient Greece and Rome, maturing girls consecrated their childhood dolls to the goddesses. Cloth dolls in the form of animals are generally called "stuffed toys."

Additional Notes:
Dutch ..... Beeldjes die mensen of dieren voorstellen, inclusief maar niet uitsluitend de figuurtjes die bedoeld zijn als speelgoed voor kinderen, vooral meisjes, of als verzamelobjecten voor volwassenen. Poppen stellen vaak een baby of vrouw voor en hebben soms beweegbare armen en benen. Dikwijls is het mogelijk ze andere kleding aan te trekken. Een pop kan gemaakt zijn van stof (lappenpoppen), hout, klei, porselein, was, papier, plastic, celluloid, maïsvliezen of andere materialen. Poppen kunnen ook figuurtjes zijn die worden gebruikt voor ceremoniële, religieuze of decoratieve doeleinden. Er is archeologisch bewijs dat poppen de eerste speeltjes waren; ze zijn aangetroffen in Babylonische en Egyptische graftomben uit circa 3000 v. Chr. In het oude Griekenland en Rome wijdden meisjes als ze volwassen werden de poppen uit hun kindertijd aan de godinnen. Poppen van stof in de vorm van dieren worden meestal 'pluchen speelgoed' genoemd. 
German ..... Figuren, die Menschen oder Tiere darstellen, meist, aber nicht ausschließlich, als Spielzeug für Kinder, meist Mädchen, oder als Sammlerstück für Erwachsene hergestellt. Puppen haben meist die Form von Babys oder Frauen, oft mit ausziehbaren Kleidern; sie können bewegliche Arme und Beine haben. Puppen können aus Stoff (Stoffpuppe), Holz, Ton, Porzellan, Wachs, Papier, Plastik, Zelluloid, Maiskörnern oder anderen Materialien hergestellt sein. Puppen können auch Figuren sein, die zu zeremoniellen, religiösen oder dekorativen Zwecken verwendet werden. Archäologische Belege legen nahe, dass Puppen das erste Spielzeug waren; sie wurden in Gräbern in Babylonien und Ägypten aus der Zeit um 3000 v. Chr. gefunden. Im antiken Griechenland und Rom opferten die heranwachsenden Mädchen ihre Kinder-Puppen den Göttern. Stoffpuppen in Form von Tieren werden meist “Stofftiere” genannt. 
Spanish ..... Figuras humanas o humanoides, especialmente aquellas usadas para jugar, y algunas usadas para propósitos ceremoniales, religiosos o decorativos.
