Face of the day

Today’s face of the day does something really cool. She takes old discarded dolls and re vamps them into something so much better. Her work makes me realise just how awful some of the modern dolls really are. I know which ones I would rather own.


Sonia Singh (Tree Change Dolls) from Tasmania


These dolls have been rescued and rehabilitated from op-shops and tip shops around Tasmania. These lil fashion dolls have opted for a “tree change”, swapping high-maintenance glitz ‘n’ glamour for down-to-earth style. I hand repaint the dolls faces, mold new shoes, and my Mum sews and knits their clothing.

My sisters and I grew up playing with second-hand dolls and home-made toys in the beautiful Tasmanian natural environment. I love the satisfaction of repairing and reusing discarded items to give them a new lease on life.
