Fireball doll - Drossel von Flugel

I just bought myself this little poseable doll - called Drossel von Flugel from the Fireball anime series - see Youtube to see episodes (they are quite funny -subtitled from the Japanese). She is only 10cm or 4inches high and everything moves! You can pose her in almost any position even on one leg, so I can have her doing something different every day. I saw one on a blog for Little Bearies and just had to get one myself. Kids think Im mad but I like her on my computer desk! I think you can get larger ones that are made from metal and plastic - mine is only plastic, and the larger ones sometimes come with the different heads - my Drossel is the "fighting" one something to do with the head wear. Her usual get up is long pigtail type things but I liked this one the best. Have a look on eBay under "Fireball Drossel" if you want one. Mine was only a cheap one from the USA but its got the Disney name on it so Im pretty sure its genuine. My only worry is that the thumbs are movable but fall off if you do try and move them and unlike the other pieces they are so tiny that if you dropped one on the carpet you would never find it again and she would look weird without a thumb so I might supaglue them on...


  1. Yay!!! Aren't the cartoons crazy? I thought they were amusing :)

    And I absolutely agree with you about the thumbs... I think super glue would be an excellent solution, since there really isn't that much benefit to that part of the robot being moveable.

    I will probably have to do that myself... the cats knocked my robot container to the floor the other day and I just hope I managed to gather up all their little thumbs!!!

  2. Hi Heather, I will have to go back to YouTube and watch all the episodes there as I think they are hilarious. I love posing my little doll in different ways each day and she makes me smile. Im glad I found your blog and saw the post about the dolls.
