Well, frankly, anyone who appreciates intricate handwork, you'll like these porcelain dolls. They're made by a woman named Marina Bychkova, and her website is here.

Go.

Look.

Now.

I swear you won't be disappointed.

I don't see the creepy part at all. Well, maybe just a little. Still, they're quite beautiful and all meticulously handmade/handpainted. I think they're stunning, definitely not something you'd find in any store.

What I think is most great about them is that they keep alive what is so wonderful about well crafted toys. Especially in this age of cheap as cheap can be coupled with planned obsolescence. Here are dolls that will last a lifetime, if not longer.
