China head dolls, also known as fashion dolls, are a type of doll that originated in Germany in the mid-19th century. These dolls were made of bisque or china and had moulded hair, painted features, and cloth bodies. They were popular as playthings for young girls and were also used as fashion models, as their heads could be removed and replaced with different wigs, hats, and clothing. They are distinguishable from bebe dolls by their smaller heads and accentuated waists.
