THE Ipswich Civic Centre will be overflowing with dolls and bears this Sunday as collectors embrace one of the biggest shows of its kind in the state.

The Ipswich Gala Doll Fair is held as part of the Ipswich Festival and will completely book out the foyer, auditorium and stage.

Exhibitors from across south-east Queensland will show off antique and modern-styled dolls, including the popular - and sometimes scary - life-like reborn dolls, as well as teddy bears of all shapes and sizes.

Dolls and bears will be on sale at the event, along with prams, cots, dresses, wigs and endless supplies.

Organiser Val Metcalfe said a valuer would also be on hand to take a look at any old doll or bear.

The proceeds of raffles will go to Ipswich Hospice Care. As this is the 30th year of the doll and bear show, a large birthday cake will be cut straight after Cr Paul Casos officially opens the fair at 10.30am.

Doors open at 9am. For information, phone Val Metcalfe on 3282 2434.
