Daisy and Daisyette

18" Daisy and Daisyette (Bleuette Friend)

18″ Daisy and Daisyette (Bleuette Friend)

Good afternoon everyone. I am just finishing up some Daisy and Daisyette orders for finished dolls for Christmas. Two more Daisyette’s and I will be current on orders. Both of these, Daisy and Daisyette, have been spoken for but I will begin taking new orders for them now. The costumes were made by Pam Willits. The matching wigs in the photos of both dolls together are Kemper Daisy mohair wigs. The photo of the last Daisyette is of the Global mohair Daisy wig in size 6-7. I will soon have several of that wig coming in, in the Daisy size 8-9 also. Daisy is such a great doll, originally brought out in 1911 by Ladies Home Journal. If you are wanting to add a Daisy or smaller size Daisyette to your collection please let me know so I can get your name on the waiting list for a finished doll. SFGW and supplies to make your own Daisy is also available. Email me with any questions or to place your order: landofozdolls@mchsi.com . Have a great week!! Connie Zink

“Daisy” The Doll That Came To Life “Photo of the Day”

Today’s “Photo of the Day” September 1st, 2014 for Land of Oz Dolls is actually three photos that were taken back on February 9th, 2011. The two larger dolls are an 18″ Kestner “Daisy” on the left and the 18″ Handwerck “Daisy” on the right. The Kestner 171 “Daisy” is made from the Seeley mold. The Handwerck version of “Daisy” is made from an old Handwerck 109 mold I had found. Both heads are on the same Daisy body, but one has a slightly larger forehead than the other so the difference in height. The smaller one in front is the “Daisyette” Kestner from the Collectible Doll Co. mold. Costumes were made by Pam Willits and Clara Pelfrey.

“Daisy” the Kestner 171 version, originally was “The Doll That Came To Life” through The Ladies Home Journal magazine back in 1911. I will be posting the complete history of “Daisy” soon but until then I hope you enjoy my “Photos of the Day” for “Daisy”.
