The Jane Austen Doll



Did you know that you can purchase a Jane Austen doll?


Or Edgar Allen Poe, or Gandhi or Shakespeare or Einstein?

Since as the character in Becoming Jane says:

"Irony is two contradictory truths brought together to make a new truth."

A Jane Austen doll satisfies all the requirements of that definition.

That is the ugliest doll I've ever seen. Why can't they make a pretty Jane Austen doll??

Is the Shakespeare doll handsome because I need someone to dance with the Jane Austen doll.

Did you know that Regina Doman's third book is out now? Got an e-mail a few days ago.

My junior year psychology teacher had a complete set of those very same dolls. His favorite, naturally, was Sigmund Freud.

She's hideous and somewhat frightening.

Surgite et coffeam olfacite; Don't you have a GI Joe doll that the Jane Austen doll can dance with?

Yes but I'm afraid she's too tall for him because though she's the youngest she is the tallest just like Lydia. The other commenters on this blog are boring. Liven it up, Mary.
Madeline you're okay

I was hoping for a Barbie-like doll, in both size, and now in appearance somewhat. Jane Austen was prettier than that. I was hoping for a jane Austen to go with my 12-inch Lewis and Clark dolls. (My friends and I are history geeks, and since Austen and Lewis were the same age and sort of compatible, we thought Meriwether Lewis and Jane Austen would be an interesting match.) My solution: create a doll that can sit in a doll stand and become an hierloom.

I think the doll is cute and snuggly although I like the ones at Up All Night Studio on the Etsy sitefor my Jane themed decorating.
