When our first artisan started making our dolls, her 3-year old son started naming them. He gave all the girl dolls with different color dresses different names. But when it came time to name the boy dolls, he wasn't too interested. He named them all John! So, in keeping with the tradition he started, we've decided to name them Purple John, Blue John, etc. From the mouths of babes!
Approximate Doll Dimensions:
- 15" tall
- 11 1/2" arm span
- 2 1/2" thick
- All dolls have a white or brown face, arms, and front torso, while the back of their heads, torso backs, and legs are black.
- Girl Dress: All have a black bonnet tied to the neck with black ribbon, a long dress, and black apron.
- Boy Dress: John and David come with straw hat (sewn onto head), shirt, and black pants with suspenders.
- No dolls have any buttons or zippers, as the Amish don't view those notions as being "plain."
