Welcome to Britain’s greatest and grandest web site devoted entirely to the traditional
folk art of the Dancing Jig Doll.
Jig dolls have been around for centuries and used to be seen dancing on street corners
or in pubs , entertaining passers by, and most likely annoying serious drinkers!
In this site you can see various characters in action and get a feel for their great
entertainment value. I dance my dolls regularly at our music sessions in our local
pubs. They are always of interest to our locals, but I never cease to be amazed at
the reaction they get from visitors! The excitement and interest is second to none.
All my dolls are made by myself for amusement and fun. There are lots of pictures
and videos of dolls dancing in this site. In addition all of my standard (Ready Made)
dolls are made in memory of an artiste from the past and this is reflected in their
name and character.
Please have a look, enjoy yourself, have fun, and buy one for yourself if you want

Postage charges Following a massive hike in UK postage charges I have recalculated the p&p (shipping) charges. You will now have to purchase your board separately from the doll. Details of the different boards available are in the Accessories page. A new “Costs Summary” page is added.
