Official norndoll

The Limited Edition version of the first two Creatures games came with a small plush beanbag Norn, known as a Norndoll. These beanie Norns were likely commissioned due to pressure from the Norn Doll Wanters A Lotters action group on alt.games.creatures. The plush toys are no longer available to buy officially, but they can often be found preowned on websites such as eBay. Please keep in mind that due to their rarity, many of these plushies can fetch quite a hefty price tag!

Brownnorndoll.jpg Brown Norndoll, "Berry" Special white box edition of Creatures 1 Known to be the rarest of the three norndolls, this plush is extremely difficult to find for sale online. Seems to be based on the Banana Norn breed.
Greennorndoll.jpg Green Norndoll, "Random" Special boxed edition of Creatures 2 with black volcano side section The second rarest of the three official norndolls, and resembles the Creatures 2 Emerald Norn breed to a certain degree. Can sometimes be found online, though not as frequently as the purple version.
Purplenorndoll.jpg Purple Norndoll, "Blueberry" Special boxed edition of Creatures 2 with purple waterfall/bridge section The most famous of the three norndolls, and the easiest to find pre-owned online. It often appears on eBay listings, but keep in mind that it can fetch a hefty price tag which may or may not be warranted. Appearance is based on the Purple Mountain Norn. Please see also Blueberry.

In addition to the three norns, a prototype Grendeldoll was also developed, but didn't make it to the shelves and remained in the Creature Labs offices for many years. It is pictured here, first from the right. Creature Labs also had a purple medium sized and green large sized plush Norn, (shown right), but these don't appear to have ever been for sale.

No norndolls were planned for release with Creatures Online or Creatures Family, though the former did have a set of two different norn figurines that were released under the "Creatures 4" name, that could be won in various online competitions. Due to the cancellation of said games, these figurines are no longer being manufactured.

Custom Norndolls[edit]

Despite being asked several times, Mindscape never developed further models of Norndolls to be given away or sold as merchandise, and the original templates were destroyed by the manufacturers a few years after they were last used (as was their process for old designs). This loss encouraged the Community to start making their own Norns. Alien, Data, Tafgana, Don, Nish and Lyz York have all been known to make handmade Norndolls, many of which have been given or sold to members of the Creatures Community.

You can download the sewing pattern for Alien's, Data's and Don's Norndolls on their webpages. Each of them have a tutorial including pictures on making their individual dolls (Alien's tutorial is in German). Data's pattern is down, but the instructions were archived.
