Three-dimensional representations of the characters from Robin Hood tales are not limited to the typical action figure toy. In this section, figurines range in material from fabric to paper to ceramic and differ from the intense “Cloaked Archer” figure to the whimsical “Topsy-Turvy Doll.” These also illustrate that Robin Hood, even in toys, does in fact bridge the gap and can be for both boys and girls, as the paper dolls show, a toy typically targeted to girls.

Ceramic Robin Figurine

This figure and the one below certainly appear to be from the same set. Both also appear to have at one time held weapons or the like, which have since gone missing.
