Designed like a traditional flip doll, this whimsical creature is a cat on one end and when its skirt is flipped over its head an owl is revealed, complete with little wings. The concept of the Owl and Pussycat flip doll draws from the 1871 nonsense poem about two unlikely sweethearts-an elegant owl and a beautiful cat by Edward Lear. Each doll is unique, made of hand sewn, silk-screened fabric designed by Smith.
