All of me Penny Dreadful Poppets™ are all lovingly handcrafted in uniquely unusual designs (with a bend toward the macabre or arcane)…no two are ever the same!
Once ye acquire one, ye must name it to make it yer own!
Mrs. Mooney’s Penny Dreadful Poppets™ come in three main styles: Parlour Pallor Poppets™, Pyratica Authentica Spirit Dolls™ & Pocket Mojo Babies™

Parlour Pallor Poppets™ are inspired by Victorian era “Stump Dolls”. Stump dolls originated in the late 17th century – though they have ties to the origins of all dolls. Stump dolls were of a single piece construction – usually without limbs attached (though some included arms and legs attached to the clothing). Early versions were made from wood (carved or turned) and had a very “flat” appearance with little shape. Later they were made from swaddling cloth or old bits of material left over which made them more “cuddly” and thus more popular!

Pyratica Authentica Spirit Dolls™ are a tribute to me lovely second (or is that third?) home – New Orleans. Made from ancient Bur Oak and Spanish Moss, these poppets are inspired by the Voudon fetish dolls that came to America from West Africa and Haiti. Each one carries a Gris Gris bag to attract the positive forces of Love, Health, Prosperity and Protection. They are decorated with other items that will may serve whatever purpose you are most in need of.

Pocket Mojo Babies™ are the dreadfully cute cousins to the larger poppets. Small and cuddly with a bell around their neck to dispel negative energies and a small token of meaning – they also have some spectacular hairstyles! Like the Victorian Stump Dolls, Pocket Mojo Babies™ have no visible arms or legs, but can accompany you on any journey. They are strong enough to protect you, sweet enough to attract company and sure to make anyone grin!
