QUOTES‘The Red Nose Day Dolls are the tiniest and most beautiful Comic Relief fundraisers we have ever had. The cleverest crafters, the most talented mini-designers and the greatest artists have collaborated to create 4 teeny perfect people with the most gorgeous wardrobes and enviable accessories. I am properly jealous of them.’
I think the main appeal of the items is the detailed craftsmanship, every item is handmade and bespoke, they are heirloom pieces, beautiful and just plain genius
