* * A long overdue note about Frida Dolls * *
Last Summer I was contacted by the Frida Kahlo Corporation and informed that her name and image are trademarked worldwide with regards to certain products including dolls. I contacted them minutes after receiving their email asking what was permissible (since my dolls were one of a kind art pieces, not toys or playthings) and I never heard back from them. Many of you have been asking about Frida dolls and this is why I haven't created any more. I would love to hear back from F.K.C. as many of us artists, specifically doll makers, who want to honor the memory of Frida via our art, do not wish to violate copyright/trademark laws but would like to create one of a kind pieces. In the meantime you can google the company and visit the official website where they have the only licensed Frida products including the 'official' doll.
