Kate Palmer is a nine year old human child, and owner of The Doll Family. She is daughter of Mr and Mrs. Pamler, and grandchild of Grandma Katherine as well as old sister to Nora. She is known to have suspicions over the Dolls hidden life, but never enough to cause the dolls to go into Doll State. She is really careful with the dolls and treats them with respect. She speaks with them as if they were living, and loves them like family as her mother and grandmother did before her.
