Googly Dolls

Did you know that Googly Dolls are dolls with big heads and wide eyes?

Dolls creators make dolls with the emotions of people, and we see dolls sad or cheerful, serious or indifferent, arrogant, or cute.
So the emotions of surprise on dolls’ faces are very similar to human ones.
I would like to show you Mischievous dolls.

<img src="googly doll " alt=" googly dolls dress" />The term Googly is thought to have originated from the German words “Guck Augen” which translates to “ogling eyes that move to one side”.  Googly-eyed dolls (also called ‘Googlies’) are a brand of dolls that share similar characteristics – most noticeably being their small statue and large head with wide, googly side-glancing eyes. The smile is generally small and mischievous. The first Googly-eyes dolls were produced in 1912, and all of them were biscuits. Most of Googly dolls were made in 1915-1925.<img src="googly doll " alt="vintage googly dolls" />

Googlie Eye, Googly Eye, Googly Eyed, or Googly Eyes are all doll terms used to describe what the side glancing and sometimes side rolling eyes of these charming dolls are called. The dolls can be found in antique cloth, mask face, bisque or composition heads, painted or sleep eyes, and are even made in hard plastic or vinyl materials.

 

More recent dolls are made of more common doll makings materials such as celluloid and composition. Modern Anime dolls are considered to be influenced by the Googly-eyed dolls and share many characteristics. Not only Anime but also Blight dolls seem to have become followers of these dolls.<img src="googly doll " alt="vintage googly dolls" />

Many companies have produced Googly-eyed dolls over the years. The original classic design dolls are generally credited to German toy manufacturers; included in these are Armand Marseille, Kammer and Reinhardt, Kestner, and Heubach.

French and American toy companies have also produced the Googly dolls. Known copies of Googlies, such as Campbell Kids, were made by American Character and Horsman. One of the more famous Google-eyed dolls is the Kewpies – considered to be the first Googlies these were produced by Ohrdruf and based on illustrations by Rose-O’Neil of the Ladies’ Home Journal.

Rose’s philosophy was simple – “Do good things with humor. The world needs a laugh or at least a smile”.

The book “History and Art of Googlies” by Anita Ladensak is popular among doll lovers with surprised eyes. She created a beautiful book with almost 324 colorful photos. The book contains a lot of images from leading European masters of dolls with google eyes: Kestner, Gebruder and Ernst Heubach, Armand Marseille, Max Handwerk, Kammer & Reinhardt, Hertel & Schwab, Hermann Steiner, Goebel, all-bisque and many others.<img src="googly doll " alt="vintage googly dolls" />

Expensive specimens are not available for ordinary doll lovers. But, who wants to find a more affordable option to start their collection can start with replicas of such dolls.

On my favorite English site, I came across a cute replica of such a doll. The price was very affordable and I could not resist. It is so cute that I believe the words of Rose. She makes me smile and cheer up. Here she is my beautiful girl.

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?
