Tomtens come in a flabbergasting variety, though you can usually recognize them by their hats, beards (if they are younger than 100 years old), or the expression on their faces. Tomton dolls therefore also. I have made quite a few in the meantime and show some examples here in this section.
In general I offer the following types:
- 6 inches (15cm) tall. Usually with baked lentils inside, possibly with some essential oils to give a nice smell.
- 10-12 inches (25-30cm) tall. Usually with sheep wool inside. With optional clothes.
- ... or a stick puppet gnome.

Pimmy is without a beard as he is not yet a 100 years old ...
