We regret that the dollmaker of our Heavy Baby and Little Heavy Baby dolls has retired. These special dolls are currently out-of-stock and we are unable to re-stock this item until we have found a new supplier.
Heavy Baby™ Dolls, sometimes known as "millet dolls," or "sensory babies," are filled with organic, lavender-scented millet and are designed not only to have weight like a real baby, but to provide a calming and therapeutic effect when held on a lap. Bunting-style dolls, their bodies are sack-like, without legs.
The doll's body is made of unbleached cotton muslin, organic skin tone knit, and filled with eco wool and organic millet scented with a special blend of essential oils. The outer bunting is made from ultra-soft cotton velour is removable for washing.
Currently available in the following bunting/skin color combinations:
- Sage Green/Fair
- Petal Pink/Fair
- Denim Blue/Fair
- Denim Blue/Cocoa
Each doll is approximately 17" L and weighs 4½ lbs.
Ideal for children ages 4 and up (but mothers also find it hard to resist the comforting nature of these weighted dolls!)
Please see our Little Baby Weighted Waldorf Doll, a smaller version of the Heavy Baby doll for children under 4.
Handmade in the USA
