For over 20 years now, Annette Himstedt has delighted her collectors not only with unique porcelain dolls but also with beautiful hard-vinyl dolls, and since 2002 they are all in a limited quantity. Even after the closure of the manufacturing premises, the collectors' market for these unique dolls is still very much alive and the Himstedt Kinder enjoy a whole host of internationally based collectors.
Brand new Himstedt Kinder are a rarity and can only be seldom found. Nearly all of the Himstedt dolls, which are now somewhere on sale, originate from so-called second-hand entrepreneurs.

If you purchase these dolls second-hand or from collectors please notice from whom you are actually buying. Please ensure that the Himstedt doll that you saw on a photograph is really the doll that you are actually buying.

Furthermore, please remember that dolls that have been in use over many years may just have the normal signs of wear and tear! Even a stand for the doll that was wrongly attached can leave unsightly marks. Anyone on the lookout for a good bargain must reckon with faults and may certainly now and again be very disappointed.

Truly perfect Himstedt Kinder have their price!

Should your Himstedt doll require repair please, contact Helma van Lingen from
Helma's Top dolls in the Netherlands.
