Miniature knitted clothes for baby dolls are very popular with lovers of dollhouses and collectors miniature dolls. Many dolls sculptors create such little dolls and they need beautiful doll clothes.
A few years ago, I exchanged baby dolls with a French girl. She liked my dolls, of which I had a few, she in turn offered me dolls from her collection.
Miniature baby doll was clearly made by a novice master and at first, seemed a bit funny to me. The Frenchwoman sent a lot of useful little things in addition to the navel. Now we often talk to her and exchange congratulations on the holidays.
The little dollhouse baby waited a long time for his turn to dress. Either my hands didn’t reach me, or there was something about him that I didn’t like. But I finally made a lot of doll clothes for him. After a long time, he suddenly seemed nice. Now my mini baby has a very soft and nice miniature white knitted clothes.
I started work with joy and enthusiasm. Many knitters will understand me, once you find a good yarn and tie something out of it, as yarn becomes a favorite. And it wants to tie both of them to test it. That’s what happens to me, too. I have a clear favorite among a huge range of yarn, I have already told you about it. It’s a stunning very fine yarn from Switzerland. 100% merino wool.
My clients and lovers of small dolls prefer miniature knitted clothes made of white or milk yarn. This color is a win-win and always in demand. Teddy bears are also one of my favorite doll clothes.
Little baby, only 2 inches. At first, I knitted a full set of miniature knitted clothes, a dress with a cap, panties, and socks, a drooling bear face. To replace the dress with a sweater and pants and a hat.

And there are little ears on the cap.And the full set also includes an openwork dress, small knitted panties, and an openwork bonnet cap.This complete set of miniature puppet clothes can be bought at the Creativhook shop.
Vintage dolls with marking on the back of “PLASTICBABY” are in every doll collection. Lovers of vintage dolls will not confuse these dolls with others. There are three dolls of this brand in my collection now. I am very happy about that.
A few facts about the history of the company for fans of these dolls. The information I found on the website sylvias-puppenhaus.de The company Preh-Werke of Bad Neustadt / Saale was the first who began to produce plastic toys after the war in 1949 and produced them for only one decade, until 1959.
In 1919 Jakob Preh founded the company and until his death, in the 45th the company was engaged in the production of electronic components. In 1945 it would have been killed and production suspended until 1948. In 1948, the family was able to return the property and the new Director of Walter Preh decided to produce plastic toys.
On the Preh-Werke website preh.com very little information-it is said only that in 1949 the company began production of toys from polystyrene, mainly remote-controlled cars and dolls. But their dolls have become so popular with collectors.
The first samples of dolls can be seen on the advertising poster of 1950, the company produced plastic dolls of different types and in different sizes, mainly– 3, 6.5, 8, 9.5, 10.5,14 cm.
Hair the dolls were made in the form of a wig or relief. Like many other manufacturers, these dolls were often dressed in national costumes of the different States of Germany and other countries. The logo was an angel with the inscription “PLASTICBABY” stretched on his side in the wings, like this. On my three dolls, this brand name is very clearly visible.

Preh-Werke also produced quite large dolls with sleeping eyes. They were 46 and 56 cm in size. Thanks to the sources there were these photos, they give the opportunity to see dolls and other toys. In 1950, the company released this kind of doll. He was called the pups-bather, if you put it in the water and make “swim”, then his hands will turn like a real swimmer). But I haven’t tried)
This doll now lives in my collection. She has 14 cm – 5 inches.
