de la poupée adulte au poupon – French listening sample

In this sample from the Doll Museum interview, Samy Odin talks more about the transformation of dolls from representing adults to representing children and babies. In the early- and mid-19th century, dolls allowed girls to try on the role of an adult. That changed in the late 19th and early 20th century.

Listening suggestion: Listen to this 8 to 10 times, then test yourself: can you follow the recording without looking at the text?
