Nora received an American Girl Addy Walker doll as a gift last year.
This is an original Addy from around 2000, not the BeForever Addy.

Addy's hair is coarse and slightly curly.
While playing around with an old hair twister, I had an "ah ha!" moment
and decided to twist Addy's hair in small twists, similar to dreadlocks. 

Nora wanted me to put it in a ponytail first, then do the twists.
I think they turned out SO cute! I didn't bother with hair ties, as the twists
stay in place pretty well with out them. Don't know if they sell these hair
twisters anymore, but I'm guessing you can find them on
Ebay or in a thrift store, as they used to be quite common.
