Minikin Character Doll

Julie Andrews Minikin Character Doll from The Sound of Music

The hills are alive with the sound of music, and guess who's on the top of the hill?! It's Julie Andrews -- no, it's Maria Von Trapp. Another high note in the Minikin world!

Our Minikin's wool felt clothing has been inspired by and loosely based on an outfit worn by Maria (played by Julie Andrews) in the 1965 movie, "The Sound of Music ". Set in war-torn Austria, this classic movie is the story of the brave young woman who battled the world's evil with a cheery song (or two or three) and lots of love for a man and his children. You should watch it again . . .

Our miniature Minikin Character Doll, Maria Von Trapp, tops out at just over 4", the perfect height for the wife of the Captain. Julie Andrews appears in this outfit while she is yet unmarried and considering a cloistered life. I think it must be the stripes (all those hundreds of teeny stitches done by Elizabeth) and black-stockinged legs that make her so happy!

The felt clothing is all made by hand with hundreds of tiny stitches. The head is needle-felted.

Each of our 4 inch Minikins is handcrafted on a wire armature, from wool-blend felt and merino wool, one at a time, with hundreds of tiny stitches. You will receive a Minikin made especially for you, similar to the one seen in the photos above. PLEASE ALLOW THREE WEEKS FOR US TO MAKE YOUR DOLL. There will always be slight variations in design and detail. Minikins are one-piece, non-poseable Character Dolls.
