Making handmade dolls for inspiring children's imaginations
Author: Polly had a Dolly
I am a creative person - there is no escaping it! My friends describe me as a ball of creativity, quirky and unique. I thrive on new ideas, innovation and aesthetics.
I have designed and made things all my life, I studied Industrial Design at Brunel and went on to work for big brands in Design Management.
Now, as a mother of two, I am passionate about providing a fun, inspirational and educational environment for my girls which nurtures creativity and ingenuity.
My doll making business brings all parts of me together - it allows me to combine my creative skills, business mind and, most importantly, motherhood.
With Polly had a Dolly, I have tried to bring back a part of childhood that sadly seems lost in today’s world of screens and indoor, passive play. That innocence of childhood which only requires the very basic to stimulate a universe of imagination, creating the most magical of moments.
Please take a look at my dolls - they are designed for children to play with and I wish every child could have access to a "Waldorf' inspired doll.
I also care passionately about our the environment so I try to use natural materials and make dolls that will last a lifetime.
