About Honey Pot Dolls

Fed up with plastic soul-less dolls?

Want to find the perfect playmate for your child or just a joy for for yourself?


Hi I’m Alison or Ally to my friends and I am a doll maker. I am a mother of two brilliant, older children who live at home, with me, my wonderful other half, Dr. J. (a bit of a mad scientist), our very enthusiastic dog Jessy, an old grumpy cat called Sophie and 3 crazy chickens who love to run wild in the flower beds.

I have tried my hands at making many things and find that textiles are my delight and dolls are my passion, a passion I wish to share with the world. I have always had a drive to create and once my children where born, I had the perfect outlet with dolls for them and so many dressing up costumes. Those days are over for now though until grandchildren come along (not too soon I hope).

So for now I share my dolls and talents with the world, instead, for you see, I cannot stop making dolls and dressing them in pretty embroidered clothes makes me content, then they tell me their stories which I share with you
