The Kathe Kruse 18'' Towel Doll is inspired by the original doll made by Kathe Kruse with a knotted towel in 1905. The sweet, snuggly doll with a floppy fabric body is ready to cuddle, and the knotted corners are fun for your baby to chew. The Towel Doll features a variety of soft fabrics such as cotton, terrycloth, and soft polyester Nicki Molton, all of which are super soft and cuddly on your baby's tender skin. Towel Dolls are a soothing companion in the crib, stroller, and car seat. The Towel Doll makes a lovely baby shower gift. Suitable for newborns, the doll measures 18''. Kathe Kruse has a long tradition of making dolls and toys that encourage creativity, foster learning at the child's own pace, and promote cooperative play. All Kathe Kruse products are made with handcrafted details. Machine washable on the gentle cycle.
