Pickletta Longjumper, 14" Button jointed waldorf doll


Meet Pickletta Longjumper, you can call her Pickle for short.  Pickle is a Pippi inspired doll.  This has been a fun collaboration with friends.  We all used our childhood love of Pippi Longstocking to create a doll that was inspired by her character.  Here is a passage from the book where we first meet Pippi.  

"Her hair, the color of a carrot, was braided in two tight braids that stuck straight out. Her nose was the shape of a very small potato and was dotted all over with freckles. It must be admitted that the mouth under this nose was a very wide one, with strong white teeth. Her dress was rather unusual. Pippi herself had made it. She had meant it to be blue, but there wasn't quite enough blue cloth, so Pippi had sewed little red pieces on it here and there. On her long thin legs she wore a pair of long stockings, one brown and the other black, and she had on a pair of black shoes that were exactly twice as long as her feet. These shoes her father had bought for her in South America so that Pippi would have something to grow into, and she never wanted to wear any others."

Pickle is a 14 1/2" button jointed doll.  Her buttons are handcrafted from wood.  She is stuffed with wool and her hair is hand dyed camel weft.  Pickle is made with a warm red/brown skin tone.  She will come with her Pippi tunic and mismatched socks, as well as pipe cleaners to help her braids stick out.  She also has rainbow leggings, a hand drawn tee shirt featuring her favorite monkey (she drew him herself) and a pair of purple wool felt shoes.

Pickle is handmade by me in my smoke free home studio.  (We do have bunnies, but they don't visit the doll studio.)   She is intended for older children and delicate play or collectors.
