This sweet Cuddle Doll is perfect doll for a toddler or young preschooler. Waldorf Dolls are loved by young and old the world over. These high quality natural fiber dolls are lovingly handcrafted in Europe by Grimm's Spiel & Holz in the Waldorf tradition with simple features that capture the essence and innocence of the young child. Filled with 100% clean and carded wool, and clothed in a soft cotton velour suit and hood, these dolls are as soft as can be. Just a bit of hair peeks out from under the baby's sewn-on hat. The skin and clothing are 100% Oeko-Tex certified cotton, guaranteed to be free of any harmful substances including chemicals, pesticides, heavy metals and all other toxins.
You'll notice that Waldorf dolls have minimal facial features and just a hint of an expression. This is allows a child to use his/her imagination and inner picturing capacities. A Waldorf doll can easily be imagined to be happy or sad, laughing or crying, unlike more conventional dolls with rigid plastic faces and fixed expressions.
CARE: Spot-clean with water. A mild soap can also be used, but no alcohol-based cleaners.
