This lost and lonely little girl has a big heart, but she needs someone to love. Open her up and she will keep all your secrets (the zip opens in to a little baggie to store your treasures) could you adopt Cynthia? 

 

All of my Abandoned Toys are created from discarded toys and parts destined for landfill and are cleaned thoroughly before customisation. I take found toys and customise them to represent the ugliness of our throwaway culture. I envisage how an Abandoned Toy would have to adapt after being forced to grow up and take on the world alone... 

Dolls and poppets are used by many cultures around the globe as talismans for good luck or to ward off bad energies. Many believe that the uglier the doll, the more powerful it will be in it's protection of the home. In many practices of witchcraft sentimental objects are often used in spells as they are thought to hold powerful magick, which would make once loved toys extremely powerful. In combining these two traditions I hope that this doll would make a strong talisman in protection of the home.

*PLEASE NOTE: This is NOT a toy. This is an art doll for DISPLAY ONLY*
