Here is a nearly complete Cinderella Topsy Turvy Doll of my own design/improvisation. I am giving it to my niece for Christmas and it will be her first doll
My sisters and I had one that we all played with when we were little girls and that doll which is long gone was the inspiration for this one.
I made her with brown hair, though, since my niece has brown hair. I think every little girl likes to have a doll that looks a little bit like them.

I am going to change two things on this design - redo the tiara on the glam side (it currently looks like a sweat band a la Olivia Newton John) and I'm going to add a broom to the Cinderella in Rags side.

I hope you like it!

Here she is in "rags".


This looks a lil weird & perverse-but it shows how the doll works.

Here is her "glam" side. Ready for the ball. I'll try to post another pic when I fix her tiara.



Here are some extra pictures if you feel like seeing more of Cindy...

That is seriously awesome. I'm talking SERIOUSLY awesome. You should make Ariel, that'd be so cool too! It reminds me of the flip-head Power Ranger toys I had as a kid.  Cheesy
