Miniature doll by Edi. History and modernity

Miniature dolls marked with Edi made of hard plastic fascinated several generations of girls and boys.EDI dolls occupy an important place in doll collections and compete with ARI dolls.

The first dolls were produced between 1945 and 1967 by the German trademark EDI (Erich Dittmann), and in recent decades they have become a special area for collectors who appreciate and enjoy the variety of costumes in which the dolls are dressed. That’s for sure, there are many fans of these dolls among my clients.

Eric Dittman’s world is a variety of nationalities known by that time. He also created characters from fairy tales or ordinary everyday life; most of them were the size specifically for dollhouses, but there are also larger ones up to 30 centimeters.

Due to their size and variety, these dolls evoke imagination to create scenes and stories. As one of the regular clients wrote to me: “Now these dolls have a strong nostalgic value for me. There is a “Society of EDI Doll Lovers” in our city. When we were girls, we had a lot of these funny dolls, we sent them to school and played with them every day.”

Most of the dolls were sold in the grocery stores of the brand “Consum”. They were bought in pairs in different clothes, sewn from small pieces of fabric and felt.

It was in the 60s of the last century, but it sounds pretty relevant, doesn’t it?

The company produced Edi dolls in a variety of national costumes, more exclusive models, such as Japanese or Indians, guests from polar Lapland, cowboys, and residents of the Netherlands, and of course a lot of dolls in Black Forest costumes.

Now you can find dolls of different sizes on sale – 1.3 inches, 3 inches, 4 inches, 5.5 inches, and large dolls of 11.8 inches. In my collection, only dolls are 3 inches.

I like to create little dresses for these adorable dolls. You can find these dresses in my store. Your dolls will be the most beautiful in them.

Welcome to a little shop to buy new dresses for your EDI dolls.
