SCULPTED REBORN DOLL KITS
Elly Knoops began sculpting dolls around 1995, starting out with toddler dolls as well as babies, but currently she is only working on the newborn baby kits. In 2004, Elly created her first doll sculpt for reproduction in kit form for the art of reborning. This first reborn doll kit, Eefje, was presented at the 2004 Nurnberg Toy Fair. At first Elly's doll kits were produced in hard vinyl, but after visitng the IDEX doll show in Orlando, USA, she began offering kits in soft vinyl which is the preferred kit type especially for rooting hair. And now soft vinyl kits are the only ones produced. Since 2008 Elly has been producing a new series of kits in real soft vinyl, with long full limbs which are very popular. Sometimes, Elly's baby doll sculpts are based on family members; Luca was based on Elly's youngest daughter and Bibi was based on one of her grandsons. She is always creating new kits, which are gladly purchased by professional reborn artists for reborning. Elly has won several awards including gold medals in the GDS-competition. Sculpted reborn doll kits by Elly Knoops include the following: Eefje, Amy, Elly, Chrissy, Bibi, Sadie May, Hanna, Jette, Luca, Daphne and her latest new release sculpt, Kim.
