About

Hello and thank you for dropping by! ^_^

My name is Emma

I am a Graphic Designer and Illustrator born and bread in the pretty little town of St Neots in the Cambridgeshire area of the UK. By day I am a receptionist and on the side, I design and create collectable kawaii style plush dolls, artwork prints and accessories based on animals and nature which I call Ogl Dolls.

My passion is all things kawaii and designer toys. I love absolutely everything about them!
During my college days, I would sit for hours just sketching random cute characters in
my little sketch book, when it suddenly came to me... 'These would look amazing as plush toys'. So four years ago, I set to work on designing templates and chose fabrics
which I thought would really highlight their unique…

My passion is all things kawaii and designer toys. I love absolutely everything about them!
During my college days, I would sit for hours just sketching random cute characters in
my little sketch book, when it suddenly came to me... 'These would look amazing as plush toys'. So four years ago, I set to work on designing templates and chose fabrics
which I thought would really highlight their unique characteristics.

My dolls were originally comprised of a distinct oversized eye on the right hand side of their faces (which is where I came up with the name). However,over the years I have developed my characters to become more adaptable and individual, yet still hold their distinct flat, round design.

All my dolls are lovingly designed and hand sewn completely from scratch, with an abundance of high quality materials from plain to patterned, furry to fleecy. I even recycle clothing such as jeans, t-shirts and dresses!

I am a massive fan of Japanese toy art and illustration and so my work has been highly influenced by their cutesy, yet quirky style.

I have also banded out a little, creating unique tote bags with matching coin purses where i make the fabric the main feature. I source most of my printed fabrics from Japan and other fabric outlets that stock these wonderfully charming materials so that I can create the most adorable and unique designs for all you kawaii loving lot out there. Like my dolls, I also offer a bespoke made to order service.

I charge a fair and honest price for all my dolls, accessories and prints, as many of you artists out there will know, a lot of time and pure dedication goes into every piece.

All fabrics I use are CE certified and facial features sewn on for extra safety for young children.

PLEASE NOTE: My dolls and any other plush based products are NOT CE tested, they are for collectable purposes only so if buying for a child please bare this in mind. Items are NOT suitable for children under the age of 3 years due to small parts such as buttons and bows etc. Should you wish to have a doll created for a going child, I can create one which does not contain such small details.


WANT A BESPOKE MADE ITEM?

Please do shout, I am always more than happy to assist in making your dream doll OR bag! From choosing your fabric to cute details I can source pretty much anything. Please be aware that pricing will differ on custom made items.


I hope you enjoy my dolls as much as I love making them.

Keep your eyes peeled for more new and exciting characters. It may take a bit of time
as my characters are pretty time consuming to produce.


Thank you again for looking xXx
