Item CR1952 – Now for sale is “Freeke”, an Original Himstedt Club Doll. Designed by Annette Himstedt in 1997 after a playful little girl from Holland. Both she and her doll Bibi are original Annette Himstedt Puppen Kinder. They are limited to one club year. Freeke has beautiful blonde hair and pink eyes. Her hair, which is real human hair, is braided into tresses at the sides and then clasped together on the top of the head. Freeke’s clothing is made of high quality ecru-colored cotton tulle. The dress-top, the sleeves, the frills of the skirt and Freeke’s undergarments are all embroidered with blossom ornaments. This tulle was manufactured exclusively for Freeke following Annette’s own design. Freeke wears a bracelet made of copper. On her arm, Freeke carries her adored doll Bibi. It also has delicate pink eyes. It has light brown hair (mohair), which dances in little ringlets around the top of its head. It has a small silk ribbon tied around it’s ankle. Bibi’s dress is made of the same cotton tulle as Freeke’s dress. Bibi also wears a copper year bracelet. Freeke and her doll Bibi were crafted by hand with loving care.
Both dolls are pose-able and their clothes are removable, as well. Aside from being so realistic you’ll almost confuse Freeke for a real child, she is also adorable and sure to bring years of enjoyment to you or your special loved one.
This particular pair of dolls was purchased a little over twenty (20) years ago and has remained with the first owner. She has taken immaculate care of them and they are in very good, even near mint condition. The dolls have remained in a pet and smoking free home since their purchase. The box is not available.
