Novels and Ballets

Dolls and Puppets from Novels and Ballets! 
Some classic tales are longer than fairy tales. They have entered our culture through books, screen, and stage. Some longer tales have entered the public domain and caught my eye as a doll maker.  Here you will find those inspired by Alice in Wonderland, Little Women, The Nutcracker and the tales of Merlin.  I hope that you enjoy both these dolls, and their stories, and perhaps decide to take a few home with you.

Most of our dolls are reversible.  If you see two or more characters in a photo, that means there are either two or more characters in one doll, such as the White Rabbit and the Queen of Hearts, or they are a set of hand puppets, such as the 8 characters from the Nutcracker. All reversible dolls are also available as individual dolls or as hand puppets.

To learn more about any doll or story, simply click on the doll’s name.
