Heavy Baby Doll
Heavy Baby Dolls, inspired by Waldorf baby dolls originating in Germany in 1919, the Heavy Baby was designed to resemble a child in its infant stage. The characteristic shaping of the doll's head distinguishes it as a Waldorf doll. The doll's facial features are hand embroidered and intentionally simple, in order to encourage imagination and creativity during play.
Lovingly handmade in Costa Mesa, CA by our skilled doll-maker, Phyllis Gilmer, a retired Waldorf early childhood teacher. Each one is unique and dimensions may vary slightly.
Small weighing 1 pound, 10 inches - Medium weighing 2.5 pounds, 12 inches. All materials are locally sourced from Weir Dolls and wool is from West Earl Woolen Mills, an Amish community in PA. Head and hands are fashioned from clean carded sheep wool, inner body is from 100% cotton muslin, and is filled with NatureFil, made from corn, scented with essential oils. The outer bunting and hat are stitched from ultra-soft cotton velour fabric, (80% cotton 20% stretch), and available in many colors.
