Jean has designed a number of novelty dolls in her career but Topsy-Turnabout is probably the most elaborate because believe it or not, she turns into 4 different nursery tale characters!
Knitted using DK yarn, Topsy measures 28cm (11in) from the hem of the "under" skirt to the top of the head.
The reversible aspect is shown in the photographs. The dolls' faces have different expressions and each has a cap or bonnet that hides the reversed face. Topsy also has many removeable accessories which add to the enjoyment and story-telling. They can all be popped on and off by means of tied bows or snap fasteners.
