Hard Plastic Renwal Dolls

Renwal Dolls

Renwal dolls, they look so creepy, don’t they? But at the same time they are SO pretty as well! The photography, by ForgetMeNotVintage; the shop on etsy which sells these vintage dolls, is truly outstanding. The pink doll is neatly placed on a chair, and we can see that she sits in a wallpapered room, the yellow child is also portrayed in a masterly way. We, at Mimi Berlin, don’t want the dolls, we want these photo’s! #auchhaben

Early plastics

Dolls from Renwal toys. above, in pink is the mother, the sister is yellow. Below, in white, are the Renwal Veterinarian Doctor and Nurse Doll, they all belong in a dollhouse and are really small in size. The figures are produced by the American Renwal company from 1945 untill the late 1950s. (Click HERE for an extra read on older and early plastics dollhouses)

Mimi Magazines Coverstory

Mimi Magazines Coverstory

Way back in 2010 we, at Mimi Berlin, had a little business selling our collection of Vintage Fashion Magazines from the attic. We also had a copy of a Vogue UK, the September issue of 1967 with Dutch, then, model Willy van Rooy on the cover (500 grams/€65,–) Somehow we found out that Ms van Rooy didn’t own a copy of this particular issue and so we sended her ours. We did ask if she could make a picture for us, (see that one above) that she did. We also could pick out some of her jewelry, which Willy van Rooy designs herself and sells in her Etsy store.
Now that’s what we call a good, fashionable MimiMagazines swap!

We have still some vintagedeluxe fashion magazines for sale left, see them HERE
