On the 28th November 2021 I heard the very sad news that Kristin had passed away aged 85.
Kristin has been buying my dolls and toys to sell in her shop in London ever since I started making miniatures in the mid 1980's. She gave me a lot of encouragement in the early days and did not mind when I started making replicas of the Playschool Humpty - in fact, once she considered I had got the design right, she purchased some to sell in her shop. Shortly afterwards I discovered she had designed the original Humpty featured in the Playschool BBC programme.
I feel honoured to have known Kristin for so many years. Tributes to Kristin
