Flip dolls are two sided dolls, usually with a head and torso on each of two sides, and connected at the waist. They are two dolls in one! Usually there is a skirt covering one side of the doll, so that there is always one visible doll and one unseen doll, below the surface of the skirt. This mysterious, hidden side of the doll lends itself to many different storytelling options, especially stories exploring dualities (opposites or themes that have two sides.)
The flip doll lends itself to all sorts of personal storytelling, because of its two sides. This mini-book is the first in a planned series of mini-books and other offerings about flip dolls. This first one is more general but my plan is to write more specifically about types of flip dolls and give you the opportunity to learn about and make them. I have been obsessed with them for years and am excited to see what you might make with your doll. Please share what you make with me at my email address.
