Product Description

About the Author

Sunnhild Reinckens lives in Hanover, West Germany. There and in many other places she holds courses for children, mothers, fathers and grandparents. She believes it is better that people make a simple doll, however modest an affair, than to buy one in the shop for their children.

17 of 17 people found the following review helpful By Johanna Gibson on 1 Mar. 2009
Format: Paperback
There are 17 different kinds of dolls covered in this book, from the basic little bag doll with a head, up to jointed dolls and also a more traditional "Waldorf" style of doll with soft limbs stuffed with wool and a shaped face with painted eyes and sewn on hair. It's an excellent book, and I would have given it 5 stars, but the section on hair styles is short with only a few pictures and illustrations. If you already have doll-making experience, as I have, the hard part is the hairstyle and I think this subject is better covered in the book Kinder Dolls. In that book, many different hair styles are covered in detail, with illustrations for the steps of each one. A good covering of hair, styled appropriately, really make the dolls come "alive".

Topics covered:

Making the doll's head, Different hair styles, Painting the face, Cuddly doll, A doll for very little children, Printed cotton or corduroy baby-doll, Knitted doll: Pippi Longstocking, Baby-dolls, Dolls for dressing and undressing, Tiny baby-doll, Finger puppets, A little table-theatre, Punch-in-the-cone and stick puppets, The gnome, Snow-White and the seven dwarves, Hansel and Gretel, Grandma and Granddad, The dolls' house and its inhabitants, The hobby-horse, Mending dolls

As a craft fanatic, I am always on the lookout for inspirational books. I bought Making Waldorf Dolls by M Sealy, which is a lovely book itself, but I find Sunnhild Reinckens' book more helpful as it has photographs as well as drawings. Admittedly, the photos are a little dated, but nonetheless delightful.There is a large selection of dolls for any age and all skill levels, and the instructions are brief, but adequate for those with a little basic sewing knowledge. I would recommend this book for crafters that love traditional toys.

this is a book that just skims the topic of making Waldorf dolls, to be honest I have seen better tutorials on the internet, with detailed photographs, it has some nice photos of dolls you could make though, but the patterns are a bit laughable, tiny diagrams of how a doll dress would look like. Bit dissapointed to be honest

Highly recommended resource 28 Oct. 2007
By Carlin R. Davis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a great source for making dolls for children. Great for beginners as well as experienced dollmakers. I only wish that there were more patterns to follow instead of leaving the general patternmaking to the dollmaker.
