Child Craft Kokeshi and Sayonara Doll Images
Kokeshi dolls are handcrafted wooden Japanese Kokeshi Japanese Theme toys initially enjoyed by children of peasant farmers in the Tohiku region of northern Japan.
Paper Kokeshi dolls and mask patterns are intended for parents and teachers who are more concerned with teaching children hands-on tangible crafts of all kinds in order to develop cognitive, reasoning skills, so they can actually discover the how's and why's of the way things work.
Traditional Kokeshi dolls have oversized heads, cylindrical bodies with no arms or legs. Creative Kokeshi dolls have a wide variety of shapes, sizes and colors. Kokeshi dolls generally appear female in traditional kimono dress.
Sayonara dolls are popular variations of the Kokeshi doll but with a cylindrical body upon which a length of cloth or paper is attached upon which the sender can write letters and messages upon. The traditional material for the message is a scroll of Washi paper that wraps around the Sayonara doll to form a kimono.
