Mission: Virtual Doll Convention has a clear mission - accessibility + affordability. We work to develop new educational content and present world premiere productions that contribute to the vibrancy of our doll and bear community. We work to unite doll collectors around the world, build thriving digital communities, encourage growth, development, self-love, and empowerment within those communities.

Virtual Doll Convention is the first of its kind - a fully interactive Doll and Teddy Bear Convention presented completely online.
