The "Throw Dolls" were developed by Alma Siedhoff-Buscher as a durable and simultaneously soft toy for small children. They were perfectly suitable for throwing but also for gentle snuggling: The flexible bast fibre body that formed the dolls’ basic foundation could assume any form without breaking and were partially covered with clothes crocheted from chenille yarn. The heads of the dolls were made of painted wooden eggs and wooden balls served as the hands and feet. The "Throw Dolls" were produced in three versions: a boy, a girl and a dark-skinned child.
The „Throw Doll“ in the exhibiton here can be pushed into another position by the visitors. The doll already survived a throw out of the 3rd floor of the Prellerhouse, the former student studio building of the Bauhaus school.
