Brontë Paper Dolls

This post on Austenblog reminded me that there are Brontë paper dolls out there as well. From this link you can purchase a limited assortment of your favourite characters including Heathcliff, Cathy, and Jane Eyre.

Also there is Jane Hare.

OMG!!!!!!!!! *writhes in fits of convulsive laughter*

Jane Hare!!!!! This the funniest thing I've seen/read in MONTHS!!!! Thank you so much for the links! I can hardly type!

I think a friend of mine has a plush rabbit named "Jane Hare" in honour of Miss E. but I have to confirm this ;)

I once went through some sort of Brontë paper-dolls phase (!) and found those and some other ones of the three sisters - these last three are fun because they are so totally out of character with them :D

mysticgypsy said...

oooh Cristina!! Can you please share with me the link?

Thank you!

Brontëana said...

I once heard tell of a Charlotte finger puppet but that's as close as I have come so far ;)

Okay, so I have no idea what's going on with Jane Hare!

I had to laugh about all the effeminate men like Heathcliff (what's with the HAIR???), Mr. Darcy, etc. compared to Alexander the Great. He has a... package.

mysticgypsy, I got them ages ago (back in 2003, I think) but fortunately the owner keeps them still on the same website. So here they are:

Have fun! :)

Okay, so it didn't work. Let's try again:

Thanks for the link, Christina! They look a little glamourous ;)

mysticgypsy said...

Thank you Cristina!

I'd like to see how the Brontes would react to these pictures! ;)

Brontëana said...

I was thinking the same thing!

Brontëana said...

Oh, and Rinabeana, yes, I think H looks a bit too much like an underwear model: the way he is standing. ;) As for Mr. the Great, well, actually I think my Classics education has corrupted me. My first throughts were: "Did they have underwear in Ancient Greece? ...I cannot remember!" ;)
