Creator Suzanne Woolcott / licensed by Santoro.
This girl is a new discovery for me and I adore her!
She is seriously quirky and totally different from the usual dolls I tend to get drawn to – and that’s why she’s special.
A contemporary doll; Gorjuss was created by an artist called Suzanne Woolcott who started off doing paintings and drawings of girls in a very similar style to the doll. All had this beautifully unique design that is just so appealing. Her artwork can be found anywhere – from tins, pencil cases, magnets, bags, cushions, books marks… you get the point.
Gorjuss is licensed by a company called Santoro who have a fab studio in London who look after and sell loads of wonderful things – including Gorjuss merchandise.
My particular girl is called The Pretend Friend. They’re about 32cm tall and you can buy different outfits for them (gasp!) They also have a certain, fruity / floral smell to them.
Not only are the dolls beautiful, but so is their packaging.
Here is Gorjuss saying “let me out!!!” (and since uploading this I have noticed the box is already covered in cat hair. Super.)
Here is Gorjuss with the lid off. Look at the lovely dotty / stripey patterns!! PRETTY. You can also see she comes with a little booklet showing all the other lovely girlies you can get. Oh god, please don’t tempt me.
And here is my lovely model showing the back of the box off. Yes box I agree with you; She certainly is an exquisite doll.
The cutest thing about Gorjuss I think are her little shoes. They are adorable. Her clothes are such fab quality she really is a joy to admire.
And she poses of course!! Cute little shoes!!!!!!!
Gorjuss is such a wonderful addition to the collection, and she stands out like a sore thumb compared to my other dolls, which is what makes her extra special.
She is also relatively affordable in the grand scheme of doll collecting. I think my girl cost me about £50 with postage and packing included.
