I have dolls

Some of them are more than others – favorites. I like them a little bit “edgy”. The ones with weird staring eyes, crooked smiles, pom poms on their shoes or other nice details in the outfits have a greater chance than just “cute” ones, to follow me home from the fleas where I usually find them.

This one is a good example. Cute all right. But the expression in the face gives you more than that. It’s a clever look, a bit sarcastic and shy at the same time. A little suffering in a way, and quite weird. And look at the clothes, just perfect. Eskimos forever.

This is what they look like laying next to each other, in a row. Piled as for an exhibition. Look at the short one with yellow pants, his name is Totte.

Le Train Fantome makes cute, cool ones – dolls.

Speaking of dolls. BIG Kids Magazine the contemporary arts publication for children with a senior editor who is eight years old. What a good Christmas present.

    I think we have Totte’s girlfriend or sister. She looks very similar, but has plaits and a lace cap. Are you familiar with Mimi Kirchner’s work?

    What nice dolls…I have dolls too and my criteria is very similar to yours. When you see a good one it’s just not possible to leave it behind!

  5. Gorgeous collection. My Dad used to bring back dolls from exotic places. They’re together in a box. You’ve inspired me to get them out and maybe use them as festive decor.
