Tasmanian mother re-paints dolls to make them more relatable for little girls

A Tasmanian mother, Sonia Singh has taken up an unique project of re-creating dolls to give them a realistic look.

How often have you looked at a Barbie doll and wondered about their unrealistic looks? While little girls play with doll and like dressing them up, most parents worry about unrealistic impression of woman that doll manages to create in a young girls mind.

A Tasmanian mother, Sonia Singh, scientist by profession, has taken up an unique project of re-creating such dolls to give them more realistic look. Sonia usually buys these dolls from second hand shops. Most are discarded dolls and she has to re create their limps most often. She then wipes the make up of their faces completely and re-paints them making these dolls look more like regular young girls and less like seductresses or glam-goddesses. Sonia's mother stitches them brand new clothes.

The project known as the 'Tree Change Dolls' started low key and as an experiment but soon Sonia started receiving orders from parents to make such dolls for their daughters. Within a short span of time- all her dolls have been sold out since February which is when she first started posting them on her site.

The project as of now is in the process of making more such similar dolls and will be available shortly. And yes, they are willing to ship it worldwide.
