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.

Micro BJD

How small do you think micro BJD dolls can be? Does your  dolls collection  have micro BJD? 

Dolls collectors  finally got a new micro BJD from China. Let’s get to know the miniature Ball Joined dolls.

I have an extraordinary micro BJD  doll for you today. A doll that I’ve waited months for and worried about more than ever. I saw it back in 2019 at Instagram’s girlfriend profile.

Maybe I just have the ability to charm and fall in love with new dolls. Many puppet collectors will understand me. I tried to take my mind off work and not think about it, but these crumbs kept coming to my attention on Instagram.

And so in July I finally got a message that the doll was ready to be shipped. Just a little excited waiting and the long-awaited package is on my workplace.<img src="micro BJD china " alt="Miniature bjd " />

When I opened the package, I found this pretty box. I have to tell you that packaging is important, if you are creative and sell your works, take packaging seriously. Your work should please the buyer already at the stage of unpacking the parcel.

And there’s a pretty, bright box in front of me. I open it and see a small soft pouch, I did not immediately realize that there may be something … There is such a tiny doll in the pouch that I was even afraid to take it in my hands.

The doll is made in China. It can be proudly called BJD, even if it’s micro. All parts are connected neatly, the tension of thin rubber bands is perfect, it allows the doll to take funny poses.<img src="micro BJD china " alt="Miniature bjd " />

I found extra eyes in a little bag. The tiny head, as it should be on micromagnetics for a comfortable change of eyes.<img src="micro BJD china " alt="Miniature bjd " /><img src="micro BJD china " alt="Miniature bjd " />

My dolls collection already has a small BJD from Korea. I thought it was the smallest BJD, but Chinese wizards and sorcerers have created an even smaller doll.

I put micro BJD eyes in the doll and now I have to give it an image, draw a face and make a wig. I hope I can handle it.

The baby wasn’t naked for long. First, traditionally, there was a blue silk dress and we appeared to the world in it.)<img src="micro BJD china " alt="Miniature bjd " />

But the girl at some point tired of being a girl, the wig is not)))) and the little girl dressed up as a boy’s outfit, whistled calling the faithful dog and went to explore a new world for her.

This is the story I have for you today. As it usually happens to me, as soon as there is a new doll, customers are immediately activated))). But I’ll make time and tie up something else fun for the doll. By the way, I didn’t come up with a name for her. Can you help me pick a new name, please?
