Nothing special.. but it is what it is.
I make these lil dudes for stopmotion animating. (very useful)

You could make them for your kids or grandkids as little dress up dolls or things kids like to play with.
Its a heck of a lot cheaper than buying Barbies every so often.

Or... you could use them for what they actually are, you know, get them all dressed up, then draw them.. i suppose it could help teach shadows in clothing and how clothes fit on the body.

Everything is up to you.

The wooden Art Manequins are about $6 at Wal-Mart. You can get them at Michaels too, or most other craft stores.
Like i said... beats the $30 Barbie dolls if you're planning on having your granddaughter over or trying to entertain your own.
