Yo-Yo dolls

I have two yo-yo dolls.  These are actually the only two yo-yo dolls I've ever seen.  I'm always surprised that I don't see them in thrift or antique stores more often.

 This one has a lovely painted face and yarn hair.  

 I love the face on this one.  

I found a couple of great tutorials here and here to make your own yo-yo doll if you are so inclined.  I would love to give it a try.  I have tons of fabric scraps that would be perfect.

I never had one but always wanted one. Maybe I should make one for myself.

I will look amongst the crafty community here...I've seen them recently but I can't remember where!

I've seen them for sale recently in the wilds of Michigan's thumb but I can't remember where! I'll go hunting again and let you know what they're selling for!
