ARI dolls rubber and plastic

I want to go back to the history of the ARI dolls company again. The interest of these cute ARI dolls does not pass with time.

Let’s have a look at the photos from the catalogs that the company produced. But first I would like to show new photos of my dolls.<img src="ari dolls " alt="creativhook collection" />

The company produced a lot of dolls from different materials and the collections include not only well-known rubber dolls.

A lot of dolls made of spiky plastic and the oldest of ceramics. In molds of these ancient dolls in our time very successfully produce replicas. Modern materials allow new life and history to the most popular dolls.

In this small photo with ARI catalogs, despite the poor quality, you can see how varied the range was then. On one of the avenues, you can read a large inscription “ARI. Advertising ceramics”.

It can be stated unequivocally that the production of ceramic dolls took place earlier than 1946, as the author at that time was already in the Western Zone (but this is the subject for a separate conversation concerning two well-known companies producing dolls at once). On two photo postcards can see ARI ceramic dolls in sets (“beach” and “kitchen”).

Some dolls are rarely found in puppet collections. Perhaps you have them and it would be interesting to learn from you.

Three plastic dolls (model 1011) – such are found with baby legs, mine – with straight legs. There is a triangular mark on the back and the inscription GERMANY 1011. Height 9cm.
I have this doll in my collection.

My plastic doll

Another cute creature, 11cm. The doll is made of rubber, the head and body – hollow, the head number 3418, the body – 3388 (under the triangle mark).

I tried to correct the known pages of the ARI dolls catalog a little. Look at the dolls’ images and information. Perhaps you will find exactly your doll in the images.

I like all my ARI dolls, but the smallest rubber dolls do not leave me indifferent.

Without a doubt, the most popular is 7 cm tall rubber dolls.

You can read the beginning of the history of ARI dolls creation in this article.

Ari dolls, history and a second youth.

Creativhook. New ARI dolls and new dresses.

My collection of Ari dolls is often supplemented with new dolls. I am grateful to my regular and new clients for their questions and requests to wear this or that doll from their collections. Such requests are the main reason to buy new dolls.

I have already written articles about dolls of the German brand ARI.
Ari dolls are very popular with collectors. Most often they are bought to play or to create clothes. But some people find other uses for them. You can create collages or showcases, or wooden boxes with handmade little things.

Modern story about German ARI vintage dolls.

I am very pleased and inspired by their growing popularity among doll lovers. There are more and more of them in different countries and their collections have several different ARI dolls.

More recently my collection has been expanded with several new ARI dolls. I want you to meet them.
The size range of ARI dolls is quite wide and starts with the smallest miniature dolls only 2 inches tall.
Everything’s fine with the little Ari dolls, but here are the faces…

Sometimes the nose is flattened, some lips are not in place, some eyes are on different levels)).

Ari dolls were cheap, so the manufacturers didn’t particularly try to make their faces pretty.

One of my clients gave me a doll that depicts Mom’s doll. This doll is four inches tall. She has a thin waist, beautifully molded hair and slippers painted in black.<img src="ari dolls clothes" alt="creativhook" />
And as usual, as a coincidence, one of my longtime and regular clients in Norway asked me to dress up Mama doll from the Ari family. The new outfit got in touch very quickly and goes far to Oslo. By the way, I am now listening to Monica Christensen’s novels about Svalbard, and the images of houses on the island inspired me to wear this outfit.

And a little more about new doll dresses.

Creating very small puppet clothes requires skill and materials. Tools and yarns need to be thin to make the dresses look perfect.


I’m constantly looking for new materials, new yarns to work with.
The latest collection of doll dresses is an amazing collection, each dress is made with very thin spokes and a hook. I suggest you look at new doll dresses. All of them are in the shop on Etsy.
