Tien and Bian: A Southeast Asian Cinderella Story
A Topsy-Turvy Doll

Based on a number of Cinderella stories from Southeast Asia, this doll represents a longer version of the Cinderella tale.  Just like Cinderella, she is a poor girl who, with the help of magic, meets and marries the prince.  Unlike Cinderella, however, her story does not end there.  For her stepmother and step sister are jealous and try to have her killed!  To help the princess escape, turn her over to reveal the golden turtle that she turns into to swim away, and the blue bird she becomes to fly away, until they can catch her stepmother and stepsister, and she can finally live happily ever after! Approximately 12″ tall.  As with all of my dolls, this is my own copyrighted pattern.  She comes with her story in a small, handmade book.

Tien and Bian, $50


Most of our dolls and stuffed animals are reversible dolls.  If you see two or more characters in a photo, that means there are two or more characters in one doll.

All topsy-turvy dolls are made to order, so you can order a custom reversible doll with your choice of hair, dress, skin and eye colors.  Just let me know!  Please keep in mind that colors may vary slightly.
