Fashionable Darangen Dolls

As you all know, Mindanao Bloggers Summit will commence tomorrow, October 29, 2011. I am so excited. In line with the event, I've actually set eyes on a Darangen Doll. What it is? Read the photo below:

Basically, it is a typical doll dressed in a Maranao tribal costume. I think we have dolls like these in Tawi-Tawi too. The difference is that those in Tawi-Tawi are dressed in Batawi.

Below is a doll from the 50th Anniversary of Mindanao State University. What makes it special? Everything is sewn to the cloth. I mean, the beads and all the stuffs. The others are just glued down.

Uhm. Sorry, the photo blurred on the doll part. :(

Look at the MSU 50 years logo beneath.

Everything about this doll is just so fabulous.

And below is my favourite doll. I was amazed how I loved the one not in pink. Yay! Well, I loved this doll because it is the only one wherein the upper color which is white is contrasted with navy blue.

I know. The dolls are super cute. They cost around Php1,500 each. I wish someone would give something like this to me. I'd be really really happy. :D


  1. Those are really cute dolls! :) (but a bit pricey though) I haven't seen Darangen Dolls before, good thing you posted this. :P I love the pink one and the green one. :)

  2. They look so cute and fashionable. I'm planning to collect some Barbie dolls but I think I must be practical bec. I have no work yet.
