Hi there, welcome to The Fairies Nest, the place where my little dolls are born! My name is Cynthia Toy and I have been a doll maker seriously and professionally for more then 20 years; a skill developed from an acute fiber addiction that I inherited from my mom; an overactive imagination, reading lots of fantasy, 3 sons, and I just love to play with dolls!

Each of my dolls requires many hours to make as I design and create each doll completely from my own imagination. Many of the dolls are made from the inside out without patterns and all have faces carefully drawn and painted by hand using no patterns or stencils. Because of this, no two dolls are EVER exactly alike, they are all one of a kind; like people, each has its own distinct personality.

I am a Froud Artist of the month (May '07) and my dolls have been featured in the Fall and Winter 2006 issues of "Art Doll Quarterly" magazine.
