DJECO – “CREATIVITY, ORIGINALITY, AND PASSION”.

About a year ago, I accidentally stumbled upon dolls from the doll world of the French company Djeco. A few days looked and thought and not buy it for the collection this doll, at least one. But something distracted me and I forgot about them. And so… just a couple of months later, my shop visited a client from Finland. It turns out there are fans and admirers of these dolls. She request was to dress her doll Girl. And I thought that my attention to them was no accident. Had to buy to be accurate in creating a wardrobe. The Djeco has a website dedicated to this company toys, but the bulk of their products is dedicated to developing toys. Pupae are cute, faces are painted by hand. They can play little girls from 5 years.

THE DJECO HISTORY IS THE STORY OF A FAMILY BUSINESS, PASSED FROM MOTHER TO SON. ENTERPRISES WITH A LONG HISTORY AND A SHORT MOTTO: “CREATIVITY, ORIGINALITY, AND PASSION”.

Each toy manufacturer, be it a designer or a card set, worked out in such a way as to involve as many mental processes crumbs. Founded in 1954, Djeco today is considered to be the leading manufacturer of children’s products. Many toys of the company are awarded prestigious national and international awards and are used in the leading educational institutions of Europe. Child psychologists and teachers take part in the development of new products, and modern French artists are involved in the design of toys. That’s why created by experts at Djeco toys are functional, cozy and broad developmental potential.

Since my occupation and my passion is dolls, so I am interested and I want to show you exactly the puppet direction of the company. This is a doll house with a variety of doll furniture and household items.

So, start looking. The main and surprisingly successful idea of a dollhouse is a doll family. As part of this direction, Djeco offers four complete doll families.

Vintage and modern dolls 2,5-2,75 inches

Hello, everybody. This post I conceived for a long time, I want to write a series of stories about dolls of different brands, but the same size.

Of course, I had to start with the smallest dolls, but I will not strictly follow the size range)il_570xN.1192173420_kvj6
My favorite doll size and the most popular among my dear customers is 2.5 -2.75 inches. They have a very small difference in height, allowing you to create clothes about the same.

At the beginning of a small family portrait. Here they are, my lovely kids, seated and ready to tell their stories.
Dolls of this size very much, different materials and different faces. All have in collections impossible.

Manufacturers of such dolls even more. And of course fans of this or that puppet campaign a huge set. My dolls are different too, according to the materials from which they are made, by the characters and the time of creation. Almost all of these dolls were created for doll houses and children’s games. Nowadays they have become collectibles and they are now played by adults!!

The beauty of my modest collection is in the variety of dolls. From old to modern. How else can we trace the evolution and development of materials?. My doll collection is constantly updated. This is due not so much to the desire and readiness for any order, but also because in me the spirit of this collector is born.
So! Let’s meet.4627

In 1872, he moved to Grobreitbach to produce porcelain from his country (this year is listed in the stigma of the old model as the year of Foundation of the company). In the same 1872, the company came and son-Carl Riedeler. The porcelain factory produced small dolls and porcelain doll heads. In 1930 part of the

Production of that time: porcelain dolls in clothes, a new kind of production – celluloid dolls, doll sets, and other toys. In 1936 the firm moved to Carl Riedeler, son of the founder of the firm. Regarding the stamps used for dolls ARI early period, it was not the usual triangle, and the heart (with the triangle inside).

There was another stamp engraved on the head with a chest plate “AR 6”.  And if we look closely at the stamps on the ceramic navels, then the triangle will see only two letters “AR”.After the Second World Riedeler produced dolls of all sizes up to 90 cm They were all labeled as ARI. In 1972, the company employed approximately 1,200 people, producing 55,000 vinyl dolls daily, which were exported to all corners of the world.

Petite Blyth.

I was always afraid of these dolls, and I didn’t plan on buying them. But the little doll I took the risk to buy. It was important for me to understand if I could make clothes for her. And, finally, she is in my home. I will make a reservation at once, I bought not the original. But now I think, that need to buy and “the right” doll. Blythe (in English transcription of Blythe) is a collectible doll with a disproportionately large head in relation to the body, inside of which is hidden a mechanism that allows you to change the color of the eyes and the direction of gaze. brandymallory1350244295

A little bit of history and facts about Blythe.

Blythe doll was born in 1971 in Marvin glass Studio in Chicago, Illinois and was originally intended for children.  The first Blyth was produced by the American company Kenner (Kenner), now this doll is better known as Kenner Blythe or vintage Blythe. In 1972, production ceased due to lack of demand. In the same 1972, the Blythe doll was produced in parallel, and in the Japanese market by the company Tomy (Tomy), but also had no success, and the production of it was discontinued. Now-dolls release 1972 from Kenner and Tom are very rare, valued by collectors and are expensive.

Production of dolls resumed only in June 2001 already in Japan by Takara (Takara), which received a production license from Hasbro (Hasbro) new version of dolls Blythe – Neo Blythe (Neo Blythe). 23rd June 2001 is the day of the revival of Blythe, in honor of this event every year in June/July issued a limited-edition commemorative doll Blythe, which has a more complex elaboration of the image.0_afe6f_9f215a0_L

Another company that received a license for the release of Blaze from Hasbro (Hasbro) in America in 2004 was the company Ashton Drake (Ashton Drake Galleries, abbreviation ADG). ADG Blythe-in fact this doll reproductions the 1972 version from Kenner, but more modestly dressed and inexpensive. The license for the release of dolls ended in 2009.TB2PQlMXwL8F1JjSsphXXXknVXa_!!1783262272

Thus, Blythe doll was produced at different times by different companies:

1972-American company Kenner (Kenner)
1972-Japanese company Tomi (Tomy)
2001 and to this day-the Japanese company Takara (Takara). These dolls are popular among collectors, they can be purchased in our store collection dolls in the appropriate section of the catalog.
2004-2009 – American company Ashton Drake (Ashton Drake Galleries)

This information will be useful to those who want to have such a doll.

At the moment, under the brand name Takara dolls are produced on three scales, but I will not go far into them. My baby doll is the smallest. Doll Petit Blythe (Petit Blythe) height 11.5 centimeters released. d39cccaf2d03

The face of the doll is covered with a glossy coating, no eyebrows. The doll’s body is frosted. The hair is stitched into a soft scalp that is glued to the head.

 

I not immediately has become to change this image and a long time my baby was here is such a. The majority of Blythe very simple makeup – eyeshadow, blush, and lipstick on her lips.IMG_5080

The mobility of Blythe’s body is limited by the rotation of the head, waist, arms and legs rotate in up-and-down directions, but do not divorce to the sides. Hand dolls are not bent legs Blaise bent at the knees a few clicks.il_570xN.1441639477_qn52

As my fascination with dolls already has a considerable age), I got some wigs. So I decided to change the image of the doll and tried on her new wig. I think he was better suited to the pale skin of this girl.43914541il_570xN.1440860276_7j8o
