Dolls from African Fairy Tales

At the moment, I only have one African fairy tale.  This is a Masai legend (although some also attribute it to the Bantu).   Sometimes called the Tree Children, other times called the Sycamore Children.  In the legend, an old woman wants children and eventually, gets them from her apple tree.  There is a condition on these magical children however, the lady must love them unconditionally.  When one day she changes her mind, the children all climb up into the apples of the tree.  The apples fall from the tree and roll away.  But don't worry, if you take one of these apples home, it will love you unconditionally, as long as you love it back.  And if you have suggestions for other African legends that would make good dolls, please let me know!

Based on my own, copyrighted pattern, these dolls are approximately 8" tall, and fold up into velvet apples approximately 5" diameter.  Apple Children are available as both girls (top photo) and boys (lower photo).

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

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