Little Apple Dolls Convention Exclusives & Series 2
Miscellaneous: Jay Cochran - 2005.06.07


LITTLE APPLE DOLLS 2 SHIPPING NOW – DOLLS HAVE AN EXCLUSIVE MASK !!


Little Apple Doll fans will be excited to see the first images of Series 2 wearing their Japanese style masks. The masks completely transform each doll almost into another being.

An Underground Toys’ spokeswoman commented that “The masks have been extremely difficult to manufacture the way Urie visualised them but have turned out beautifully…. We weren’t prepared to compromise on this feature whatever the cost”

Masks are packed in each of the new Little Apple Doll Boxes which are grey for series 2;inside is news of another development : The Little Apple Doll Fan club website.

Everyone registering to join the FREE Club receives an exclusive Club Pin badge amongst many other benefits. Go to www.littleappledolls.co.uk for more information.

In July IDW publish the highly anticipated Little Apple Doll Story Book which should tell us more of the background to their world!

Little Apple Dolls are a visual combination of foetus/toddler and skeleton. Their faces are not fully formed. They are without key facial features which may render them monstrous yet they are creatures of beauty. They look the way the do because they inhabit the place in between life and death. They are meant to represent a border: they are not dead but they are certainly not alive. In the Inbetween everything is with and without life.

Fans of Series 1 & Series 2 have been both seduced and disturbed by the dolls, created by artist, Ufuoma Urie. Series 1 are the founders, particularly Sine who gave Little Apple Red a persona in its own right. Little Apple Red acts as a protector of souls and guardian to the children, or rather the dolls.

The Little Apple first came to life in photographic works artist Ufuoma Urie had created that explored myths to do with creation and destruction. The symbol of the wounded “pin-cushion” apple as an inanimate object who is capable of showing emotion as hero/saviour/sacrifice began to feature prominently in narratives that Urie had written. As a symbol in myth, fairytale and religious texts, the apple has represented temptation: an alluring yet tainted object not appearing as it seems: that which is desired which ultimately unsettles those who come into contact with it!



LITTLE APPLE DOLLS CONVENTION EXCLUSIVE TWIN PACK

Creo and Pestis meaning CREATE AND DESTROY !


Little Apple Doll fans will be excited to hear about the arrival of Creo and Pestis – the Little Apple Doll exclusive at this Summers’ USA Convention circuit. A maximum of 2500 will be made available worldwide and will debut at San Diego Comic Con on July 14th.

An Underground Toys’ spokeswoman commented that “This pack is likely to be the most sought after as Creo and Pestis are key characters in the Little Apple Story Line”

Sporting articulated bodies and “maid” outfits which represent the opposite of each other Creo and Pestis [create and destroy] are an intriguing duo whose background is revealed for the first time within the exclusive picture & story book contained in the packaging.

Little Apple Dolls stand around 13” tall and are dressed in cloth costumes. Each doll is packed with her own “Little Apple” complete with metal pins. There are now a total of 7 characters available [series 2 is shipping now].
