Tree Change Dolls

I spotted this the other day and put up the link without a post. Meaning to write something later.

This Australian woman started repurposing dolls. The dolls are originally very fashion freaky and have a lot of ‘make up.’

She has recycled them and cleaned off the make up and given them clothes.

It’s become a phenomenal success.

The dolls are now more ‘real’ looking and the message that has come from them is that they are bucking the trend to over sexualise young girls and to give them an over adult image to aspire too.

The dolls that she has made under seem to appeal to real children because they identify with the way the dolls look.

What a great idea!

have you seen any good examples of recycling that create thought about the original item?
