Dolls from Oceania

Dolls from Oceania

Be surprised by the charms of Oceania. Maori, aboriginals, women dressed in tapa cloth, hula dancers, island residents, an array of dolls give you an idea of traditional Oceanian life.

From Australia to Vanuatu

Dolls from Oceania

Strictly speaking Oceania is not a continent but a geographic region that includes Australia, New Zealand, Melanesia, Micronesia and Polynesia. But I prefer not to be that strict. All these little island nations have to be in some category don’t they?

Help me find the missing Oceanian dolls

Oh dear, you thought the NCDC really had everything! How come this is an incomplete overview, why are countries missing? Well, the reason is simple. Some dolls are still waiting for their moment of fame. Tucked away in boxes or on display in a dusty cabinet, in need of a photo session. They will gloriously show up online at some point in time. Working on that, no worries. Like my FaceBook page and you’ll be the first to know when they join the dolls already showcased here.

But alas, a few dolls are just nowhere to be found, at least that’s how it seems. So here’s an emergency call. Or rather, a doll detective alert! Do you have an antenna for Oceanian dolls? Then let me know where to find any. Or kindly donate the ones lying around in your attic.

Anyways, contact me. You’ll be my hero. Let your doll radar spot these Oceanians. I’d love to add to my ever-growing and changing collection:
