Liddle Kiddles dolls. Crochet dresses for them.

 

Liddle Kiddles dolls are loved by collectors in the United States. Until 1917, I hadn’t heard anything about them.

This story began in 2017. One of my clients ordered several dresses and doll suits. It turns out that she was already buying doll dresses from me, but I didn’t know then which dolls she was buying these dolls for.

So, two weeks later, I received the parcel and was surprised that at first I thought it was the order that had not been received. But when I opened the box, I found three puppet bodies without heads! And the note that Connie, my client’s name was, wrote that she wanted to give me a useful gift and sent me these puppet bodies so I could knit new dresses with confidence. That’s how our friendship and puppet work began.

Connie wrote that these dolls are called Liddle Kiddly.

I started making new dresses.

The dolls have a vinyl bendable and obedient body, which is knitted only around the neck, rooted hair that can be combed or put into the hair and drawn features of the face. Wire is inserted inside the bodies to bend the handles and legs.

After a while, Connie sent me pictures of her dolls in new dresses.


I’ve been looking online, and this is what I’ve learned about these dolls. The dolls Connie collects are called Liddle Kiddles

 

The first 24 Liddle Kiddles dolls were attached to the cardboard base, each one covered with a transparent plastic bubble, each had its own accessories, themed clothes, funny book and most of them had yellow, pink, blue or white plastic combs and a brush.

Each of the 24 dolls had its own name and profession. I am amazed at the fantasies of the company’s designers. They tried to take into account all the nuances and interests of little girls.

With a very small body (2 inches), the dolls had large heads, in proportion to the body.

Now I remember this story and started looking for information about a company that produced such funny dolls. It was also because I “saved” such a pretty girl on eBay, as it turns out, the same company. And that’s why my story is about Uneeda Doll Company.

Many thanks for your comments! 

 

Miniature clothes for vintage dolls.

  • Miniature clothes for miniature vintage dolls. The little story about 4 miniature vintage dolls.

My lovely customer, Mary, is an amazingly kind lady. In doing so, I would call her original and unexpected. She calls buying dolls “salvation”. It seems that she chooses dolls for her collection according to a script. The unusual pieces she shows and asks them to wear make it clear that the script is simple. It’s love at first sight! I’ve been knitting for dolls for almost 5 years and should get used to requests and orders, but every letter from Marie makes me smile.

  • This is where I have to remind you of this post? This was the beginning of our friendship with Marie.

This time, Mary sent me this picture. A couple of micro-dolls with funny faces. The letter set out a touching story about the purchase. She, as usual, could not “save” the kids.

  • I didn’t find any information on the babies, but I can assume they’re from the ’60s.

Supposedly they were meant for a doll’s house. I didn’t find the exact information. The order had a simple request to tie two suits and small blankets. The colors were pink and blue.<img src="miniature knitted clothes" alt="2 inches dolls" />

And here’s what I did. This order was not difficult. Such costumes are ordered quite often.

And the other day, Mary sent me pictures. How much I love these moments, photos of clients. I see what happened and what had to be done a little differently. But the happiness of customers makes me happier too.

For her collection, Mary bought two porcelain dolls from the image.
