"Little Aviator" Dolls

What more could a child want than their very own "Little Aviator" doll? At least that is what I hope EJ thinks when she finds one of these under the tree on Christmas morning.

These little guys (and gal) are inspired by the kokeshi dolls I collected while living in Japan.

EJ loves playing with the Japanese dolls but since most of them were found at shrine sales and thrift shops I'm not sure how child safe they are. I thought it would also be fun for her to have some of her own that she can pretend with as she gets older. Who better to start with than her daddy!

I started with bare wood

then painted them

and finished!

EJ can imagine any expression she wants on the face and she will finally have someone to pilot her wooden airplane and helicopter!
