For my second list TEN TERRIFIC TOY DOLLS TELLY-TUNES list, please go visit The Big Takeover!

Ten Terrific Toy Dolls Traits:
Say what you will about English culture; they can pull of being whimsical without being treacly, a combination of which trips up North Americans on a regular basis. Olga & co. whether musically or lyrically, have maintained a sense of whimsy without being twee or precious.10. Consistency
Not a bad album or single [or 12" - like this one!] in thirty years - sure some albums were better than others but Olga's Dolls can be consistent without being monotonous.
