Blue Clonette Doll

Blue Clonette Doll

These plastic dollies, known as Clonette dolls, or baby DeiDei dolls, are a significant part of African history.

Based on colorful traditional wooden and grass dolls, these were the first industrially produced doll in Africa and have been made from recycled plastics in Ghana since the 1950's.

Often given as a gift to expectant mothers, Clonette Dolls are said to be a totem of good luck and act as a guardian for babies and children.

They sweak when squeezed and come in many vibrant colours. Due to small parts in this incarnation of the doll, Clonette is better used as decoration and not suitable for children
