DID YOU KNOW?

“…deeper meaning lies in the fairy tales of my childhood
than in the truth that life teaches.”—Schiller

Fairy tales cut to the essence of the human psyche. Dreams and fairy tales stem from the same place, and the relaxation of inhibition that occurs in the dream state is also true of many story tellers. So fairy tales might prove, like dreams, windows into the unconscious. The “collective unconscious” that lies at the core of Carl Jung's work, and which he believed is shared by all human beings, is revealed through archetypes, forms and symbols found in ample evidence in fairy tales. Therapists study fairy tales to help analyze the dreams of their patients. Jung’s disciples have gone on to interpret fairy tales as lives in miniature, suggesting, for example, that each character within a tale may represent an aspect of personality.

**************

CARE INSTRUCTION: I recommend that my dolls are spot cleaned for as long as possible. It means cleaning only those little bits that really need it rather than immersing the whole doll in water. This is because the wool stuffing can felt making the doll bumpy and hard. Only if the doll is very dirty I recommend to give it a full wash.

>>Spot Cleaning:
Wet an old, soft tooth brush and rub a tiny bit of soap onto it. Very gently, in small circles, brush it over the spots (dirty bits). Rinse the brush in clean warm water and brush again over the skin in one direction. Try to follow the knit of the fabric. Repeat this until all of the soap has been rinsed off. Leave your doll to dry flat and naturally.

>>Full Wash:
Fill a basin with warm, not hot, water. Add a little soap; a very mild detergent or a pure soap. Immerse the doll in the water and very gently wash. You can slowly allow the water to seep through the wool, but try not to agitate it too much. For the worst bits you can use the toothbrush trick mentioned above. When the doll is clean refill the sink with warm clean water and repeat the process to rinse. Allow to dry naturally and flat until they the doll is completely dry.
