If #Wichtel #dolls have anything at all in common with elves, then it is their magical powers and supernatural beauty! Dolls are the epitome of fantasy anyway, and if you have a dolly mindset then you'll understand when I reveal that they have quietly been communicating with me for years! As for their supernatural beauty, they have a charm so intense, it's more like a spell!

Just take a look!

If you haven't come across Wichtel dolls before now, or you have and haven't paid them much attention, then these dolls probably look like funny odd, round little figures with characterful faces - and you may not yet be sure whether you like them or not!!

Why do I keep mentioning elves? Wichtel translates from the German to 'elf' in English.

Did you know that they have a magic ability to lift the spirit from when you first lay eyes on them?

Such is their popularity in Europe that very few people just buy one doll. Just take a look at the addiction of those who have fallen for the charm of their expressions and antics, depicted in photos all over the internet. They've inspired blogs, forums and even a dedicated Wichtel doll size furniture website. Indeed the Wichtel furniture was created by a husband whose wife kept acquiring more and more of Rosemarie Muller's delightful vinyl Wichtel dolls! Unsurprisingly the forum is of German origin like Wichtel dolls, like the origination of the concept of elves in the first place back in the medieval times.

These dolls are referred to as 'balm for the soul'.

Standing 30cm in height they fight melancholy like giant warriors! We love their super cute postures, joyous facial expressions and quality workmanship. Details like mouth blown glass eyes, hand painted faces and complete German production make them very special dolls.
