Brontë Paper Dolls


This post on Austenblog reminded me that there are Brontë paper dolls out there as well. From this link you can purchase a limited assortment of your favourite characters including Heathcliff, Cathy, and Jane Eyre.

Also there is Jane Hare.

  2. I think a friend of mine has a plush rabbit named “Jane Hare” in honour of Miss E. but I have to confirm this 😉

  3. I once went through some sort of Brontë paper-dolls phase (!) and found those and some other ones of the three sisters – these last three are fun because they are so totally out of character with them 😀

  6. Okay, so I have no idea what’s going on with Jane Hare!

    I had to laugh about all the effeminate men like Heathcliff (what’s with the HAIR???), Mr. Darcy, etc. compared to Alexander the Great. He has a… package.

  7. mysticgypsy, I got them ages ago (back in 2003, I think) but fortunately the owner keeps them still on the same website. So here they are:

    Charlotte: http://community.webshots.com/photo/9023360/1010116789026681305DyLwcMksQy

    Emily: http://community.webshots.com/photo/9023360/1010116901026681305zgrjSHNdgS

    Have fun! 🙂

  10. Thank you Cristina!

    I’d like to see how the Brontes would react to these pictures! 😉

  11. I was thinking the same thing!

  12. Oh, and Rinabeana, yes, I think H looks a bit too much like an underwear model: the way he is standing. 😉 As for Mr. the Great, well, actually I think my Classics education has corrupted me. My first throughts were: “Did they have underwear in Ancient Greece? …I cannot remember!” 😉
