bleuette1.JPG (61654 bytes)Bleuette was a French child fashion doll who was the companion of little girls in France from 1905 to 1960. 

Bleuette and her wardrobe were found in a girl's magazine, La Semaine de Suzette, or Suzette's Week, which was designed to help little girls become good wives and mothers. 

La Semaine de Suzette contained stories, games, etiquette advice, recipes, and, most important, patterns for her wardrobe, for a period of over 55 years. 

Elaine has reproduced this adorable Bleuette using photos of the antique as her guide. 

For your Bleuette you will have the following choices:

Head Style - 4 Styles to choose from: Bellette, Cherie, Premiere and Gold
Body - Composition or Wood - jointed at the wrists, elbows, shoulder, top of leg and knee.
Glass Eyes - Blue or Brown
