Magdi. A small boy – still a gentle soul – more dreamy sweet animal than boy of the world – but soon: very very soon he will be out in the world.
by himself. He’ll have to fend for himself, make decisions for himself, interact by himself.
he’ll have to learn the difference between recess and gym and he’ll experience his first understanding of just how long a day can be.
his gentle dreams will give way to the conventions of school, kid culture, and society.
Magdi stands at 15.5″ tall. He is stuffed with wool and buried deep inside him he has a muscular skeletal system that allows him to hold his limbs and neck in poses.
He is very firm and feels heavy and solid. He has light tan skin, deep black eyes, soft black shaggy mussy hair made from mohair fabric and tiny ears.
striped cotton boxer shorts style undies that can double as play shorts,
a long sleeved soft cotton palest blue t-shirt,
owl pants made from Japanese cotton with a linen pocket,
a crocheted hat in shades of denim blue wool,
a wool sweater with cables hand knit by Deborah of Mini Me Woolies * (I normally make everything my dolls are dressed in but I couldn’t resist buying this snuggly sweater from Deborah to use for one of my dolls),
and hand dyed 2-tone blue leather shoes that close with an elastic loop over a leather button.
I made Magdi, a sweet and small and innocent boy, in honor of my own such boy, Ellis, who turns 6 tomorrow. Together Ellis and Magdi represent all the sweet little boys who have to start a new bigger kid phase in life – their mom and me time must come to an end – their quiet playing on the carpet time will be more limited. Sending Magdi out into the world is like sending out a little prayer hoping that as they go out into the world, they hold on to some of their dreamy, childish adventures!
Magdi is not designed or intended for young children. Please play with him if you are 8 and up.
Magdi will be for sale in the shared Dollectable shop on Tuesday September, 1, 2015.
His listing will be comment style – which means if you’d like to purchase him you enter to have your name drawn. If more than one person enters, than the software automatically picks the buyer. Payment is due immediately.
Please note: NO ANGELS / ONE ENTRY PER HOUSEHOLD. I’m leaving his drawing style listing up for many hours (4pm – 11pm Eastern) in hopes that if you’d like to enter to take him home, you will be awake during daylight hours for at least some portion of the drawing window. As such, there will be no need for angels and you may only enter 1 time per household. Thank you!
