Hitty Photo Album 1

Introducing the Hitty Girls

I like the beauty of wood and I like dolls and thought I would like to try and carve a wooden doll, but  in reality  I don’t have enough time to learn carving. In 2005 I ordered three Raikes Hitty dolls.  I already had three dollshouse size wooden dolls, Jill,  a smaller one named  Ethel and Peggy made from pegs and four bigger wooden dolls which are approx 29cm. They are all were made in New Zealand.

Ethel is on top bunk and Jill on lower bunk.   The bunk was made for my Hitty dolls. 

Serene is sitting on the mat, she has DRC Hitty Kin 11 No 46, 2005 painted in black on her bottom. The cradle was made in New Zealand  of rimu  in 2006.  
Thelma is in the cradle she has DRC Hitty-kin 343 2005 painted on her bottom. Both Hittys were made by DeAnn R. Cote of USA, in resin. They both arrived undressed and with a pattern for their underwear.

Left is Pat who was carved by Pat Thompson of USA in 2006 who was a wooden Hitty swap for a cloth Hitty. Yasmin is a cloth Sue Sizemore pattern made in 2006 by Yasmin Rauch of USA. Yasmin was a cloth Hitty swap, she is beautifully made.
