$24.95 – Hardback / Hardie Grant Books / Australia
Welcome to the colourful world of the Kokeshi, a Japanese inspired French boutique brand that introduces children to a family of traditional Japanese dolls. The Kokeshi were once made from left over pieces of wood, with sculpted hair, and little rounded bodies. Over centuries Kokeshi dolls have been modernised and given colour. Creators have taken more liberties, giving the dolls personalities and beautiful clothing, all the while observing the one founding principle. They are part of a search for beauty and art through simplicity and purity of form.
Meet Yumi the youngest of the Kokeshi.
She is adventurous and clever.
She takes great pride in everything she does, and personifies the universe that artist Annelore Parot has created for her characters.
She loves to dress up, go to school, go to parties and solve problems!
Help Yumi to find the right Kimono to wear, and learn Japanese phrases.
Find Yumi's friends, and then choose an outfit for a dress-up party!
Decide the best sushi for Yumi to eat and then fall into a Kokeshi filled dream!
