Tinybear, located in the U.K.) designed and Bobobie cast these dolls, called the Witley Wood Elves. The first was the girl, Moona, then the boy Bracken (she has since gone on to design and produce several other tiny-sized BJDs, the fat fairies, Coco and Bonbon, and has plans for more). Bracken comes all assembled with faceup and random colored wig by Tinybear and eyes, tucked in a padded satin drawstring pouch. The body has three parts and can slide slightly out of joint. The stringing is soft (so small) and other joints will pop easily, but he can stand pretty easily, so-so about keeping in a pose. The resin is smooth, no visible seams. Nice details, no imperfections in the resin.
I ordered a Bracken in December, but the package was lost. Tinybear has her packages insured, so she just sent another out to me immediately with no questions. If they are in stock, they arrive very quickly--within a week or so.
Cobweb is named partially for the fairy in Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream" and partly for the character in Storm Constantine's Wraeththu books. He's a white-skinned elf, to match my big elves, but very tiny! I'm not sure they exist in the same worlds, but who knows?
He's got a delightfully mischievous expression! Definitely Sprite-like, Peter-Pan-ish, Puck-ish. I think he's not really up to pranks or tricks, he only looks like he is. He's actually just amused at life.
