"little Geisha dolls with big heads that wobbled"

Postby keelhauler » Fri Aug 08, 2014 8:30 pm

has anyone ever come across a good doll to represent this hilarious moment?

I got this one off of ebay, which seems to fit the bill.

1) it's a geisha, 2) it's little (5" tall), 3) it has a big head that wobbles. :D

This one is a vintage doll from the 50s-60s so finding another probably wont happen.

If anyone knows of another good representation, please share.

Yeah, I saw those solar powered ones all over the place. What do you all think of them? Think they fit the story? If so, maybe we, as the leaders of the expanded universe, could choose one as THE one.

Well, I think it has to be cute, because Mal talks about how 'people loved those!', so I see it being something too adorable to resist.

I like the standing style in red or black.

Here are some YouTube videos of these solar powered ones in action (a bit unexciting, if you ask me)

I like the standing style, too. The fact that it's solar powered adds a versey element to it. More so than the "old-fashioned" static one I got.
