Little Apple Dolls Series 1
Little Apple Dolls Series 1 - Sine, Circe and Umbrae
Welcome to the In-between! Little Apple Dolls are eerily beautiful dolls with haunting faces, child souls of the place between worlds who are neither living nor dead.
Created by artist Ufuoma Urie, the dolls have become a cult hit with collectors. The first series of dolls was released around 2004, introducing us to the most widely-known characters from this range, Sine, Circe and Umbrae.
This lens looks at the three dolls and where collectors can find them.
Little Apple Dolls Series 1: Sine
Sine used to live by an orchard and tell stories to the apples. She ended up in the In-between after an illness, where the souls of children whose lives were taken by force or illness wander, lost and alone. She created chaos in the In-between, aiming to provide a safe haven for those lost souls. She appointed Little Apple Red as her keeper and a protector of souls, piercing him with pins and needles and broken glass.

Little Apple Dolls Series 1: Circe
Circe was a witch child born of chaos, from a forbidden union between water nymph and sun god. As punishment for this union, which caused an imbalance in the In-between, Circe was cursed and left alone. Circe was eventually set alight and thrown into a lake by the women of her village for being a witch. When she woke up, she was greeted by Little Apple Red in the In-between.

Little Apple Dolls Series 1: Umbrae
Umbrae was a huntress of demons. She ate the great shadow demon from the inside out and took over his House Without Windows when it passed into the In-between with her. She hunts demons in the In-between and eats candlelight and fireflies.
