Announcement   Welcome to the world of "Topsy Turvy" Dolls, also known as "Reversible", "Double", "Flip", or "Upside Down" Dolls. They are dolls with a SECRET! Read on.
My dolls are sad on one side, but give that doll a hug, turn her over, and Voila! she is happy. They are excellent tools for teachers and therapists.
Each side is dressed in a totally different outfit. Some have (ooh la la!) feather boas as blouses. Some are dressed in Occidental clothing, some in African and some in Asian clothing.
Please note that SOME, but not all, of my dolls have buttons that are glued on very securely with Fabritac Glue. It is the best fabric glue in the industry. But I only feel that it is right to say that very tiny children should not be allowed to put these buttons in their mouths.
Browse around and understand that you are viewing only a SMALL portion of what I have made. (over 125 dolls). You may request a doll in certain colors, and if I don't already have one, I will do my best to make one to order.

These dolls are made with great love and care, one by one. Their intention is to teach the value of nurturing and love. The sad side needs love and attention. Give the doll a hug, flip her over, and Voila! she is smiling. This is the story behind the doll.
Please note that if there are buttons on your doll, be careful of little children putting them in their mouths, although the buttons are glued on with very powerful glue called Fabritac.

Accepted payment methods

  • Money Order
Payment
I am charging $3.50 for shipping which is less than the cost of mailing added to my cost for the box.
Please pay by Paypal or money order.
If there is any problem, please contact me at ellenstern1 [!at] me.com
I will accommodate you in any way regarding exchange or refund, but you will need to pay for the return of the doll.
Shipping
I send my dolls by USPS First Class Mail with shipping confirmation.
AS I am unable to drive, it might take me a few days to get to the Post Office.
Refunds and Exchanges
I will exchange or refund you if doll is in a clean and repairable condition. You will need to pay for the return mailing cost.
Additional policies and FAQs
If you would like a doll in a certain color, either body or dress, just let me know, but there will be a waiting period of a week if I have to make it up new. If I already have one in the color you desire it will be faster.
If you buy more than 5 at a time, each doll will be $20, but the box will be bigger, which may raise the shipping charge.
