    We may be frustrating ourselves in the hunt for a "list of countries represented" since, from what I've been able to find, there may not be a list. IASW is more divided into global areas than specific countries: Scandinavia, Africa, South Pacific, etc. While certain countries such as Mexico, Germany, France, etc. may be recognizable, others such as Liechtenstein, Burkina Faso, Slovenia, etc. are probably just lumped in to their respective areas. Interestingly, there is actually a question as to just exactly how many countries there are in the world! The UN recognizes 191. Vatican City and Taiwan not included in their count. Add these and you get 193. My guess is: In an effort to make IASW the most inclusive, the imagineers didn't ask each other, "How's that Kyrgyzstan doll coming along?" but instead, identified certain areas (as mentioned above) to be representative of the various individual countries and fashioned dolls that seemed indigenous and representative of those areas.

    You are probably very correct in your answer. IaSW I am sure was built based on geographical areas not countries per se.

    However, we are obsessive fans, we have to detail it.

    Then here's your assignment: You must ride IASW enough times to comprehensively count and catalog each and every doll. When you are finished, a registered nurse trauma counselor will be provided. Godspeed.

    Don't give BPF any ideas though I have no doubt she'll have the WDW version documented fully once she works there in the fall.

    I do know this one, though only because I was requested to take a pic of it on Sunday. It's in the France section...

    Yes, I'd have to agree with Tom Chaney now that I come to think of it. It's more probable that the dolls represent regions as opposed to specific countries. Others are more obvious though based on costume and what they are doing. I have also discovered that all are not countries and could be states. So far this is what I can get as far as getting some kind of list going:

    Alaska (eskimo fishing), France (eiffel tower, can-can dancing), England (palace guards), Holland (wooden shoes), Switzerland (residing in mountains, yodeling), Canada (Mountie), Spain (Castanuelas/ Flamenco Dancing), Ireland/Scotland (Bagpipe), Italy (Gondolas/Leaning Tower), India (Taj Mahal/ Snake Charmers), Thailand (Thai Dance/ Costumes), China (acrobats), Japan (pagoda/kimonos), Egypt (spinx/cleopatra), Peru (tall Andes Mountains), Mexico (sombrero hat dance), Philippines (traditional style of dress/ fan), Tahiti/Somoa/Fiji/Hawaii (Grass Skirts/ Leis/ the ocean setting), USA (American Cowboy twirling rope)

    Ok now heres the kicker, by my count thats exactly 19 bolds that I can identify, there are some others though that I know I missed and is difficult to figure out if possible because of lack of language, scenery or identifiable costume. If any body else can add anything they know, which I missed feel free. Maybe we can compose an Unofficial MiceChat list. Also in case you were wondering, yes, I do have a lot of free time on my hands... haha

    You're right! She stands at the base of the Eiffel tower and she's holding a balloon. She's not an audio-animatronic doll though. She's the glittery kind!
