Meet the team
a creative group of women who believe playing is for all!
What do you do here? As the creator of Ruby Ruth Dolls and owner of the business, I oversee the running of the studio so a little bit of everything: organising the team, sewing, coming up with new characters, designing fabrics... Every day is different!
Where are you from? I grew up in a small town on the edge of London, but moved to Brighton 5 years ago after living in lots of different places along the way.
Who is your favourite character? Ahhh! That's a tough one! At the moment, I've got a soft spot for Renee as I share her passion for bonsai trees. There's an amazing shop in the Laines (in Brighton) where they sell beautiful bonsai trees and it always makes me think of Renee when I walk past it.
If you were stuck on a desert island, which character would you bring with you? It would have to be Ruby: with her experience of building spaceships, she'd be able to get us off the island and on an interstellar adventure in no time!
Which character could be your best friend? Polly - she loves a dance and so do I!
What do you do here? I manage the Ruby Ruth social media accounts, which means lots of posting pictures, videos and other fun stuff on our Facebook and Instagram pages.
Where are you from? I'm from a small town in Hampshire, but I've lived here in Brighton for six years.
Who is your favourite character? I am obsessed with animals and all things furry, so I have a soft spot for Howard. I just love his fluffy ears!
If you were stuck on a desert island, which character would you bring with you? I think Miriam's vast knowledge of astrophysics would be helpful in finding a way off the desert island! If not, I'm sure I could learn a lot about space while we were there.
Which character could be your best friend? I tend to talk a lot, so I think Jasper, being the strong and silent type, would be a good listener and a great best friend.
What do you do at RRD? As Ruby Ruth's Content Manager, I get to take the characters in little adventures and then I write all about them.
Where are you from? I'm from Brazil! I arrived in Brighton recently for my PhD.
Who is your favourite character? I love Kevin's sunflower eyes. Can you guess who is looking forward to spring?
If you were stuck on a desert island, which character would you bring with you? Ron. If nothing else, a conga line would definitely make the desert island more fun!
Which character could be your best friend? I believe Ingrid and I would have very interesting trips to Lidl together.
What do you do at RRD? I’m doing a PR internship and my tasks are write emails to bloggers, interact with customers and brainstorm ideas for social media.
Where are you from? I’m from a small town near Valencia (Spain) called Almassera.
Who is your favourite character? Sally because I love cats. Plus she's small and dressed in hearts, which makes her so adorable and huggable. Moreover, she has big dreams like being the first cat to fly a space ship
to Mars and I love that.
If you were stranded in a desert island, which character would you want to take with you? I would take Caitlin because she can get in the water and show me some of her favorite synchonised swimming choreography and even teach me some of it!
Which character could be your best friend? Many of them could be my best friends, but I think Valerie is the perfect one, because we both have played football for many years.
