Ruby Ruth’s eccentric dolls are back once again, and we are proud to have those adorable characters back in stock. It has been SO hard seeing them go to many customers, We were super happy to have new characters to add to the family.

If you are not aware of these cute things, Ruby Ruth Dolls are made from an assortment of recycled materials sourced from local charity shops, car boots and welcome donations and are hand tailored into these colourful characters designed by Jenny Mustill.
