Holiday Gift Guide: Dolls & Stuffed Animals

Holiday Gift Guide: Dolls & Stuffed Animals

A Waldorf doll is a wonderful gift for children. These dolls can be used as a way to explore role playing, nurturing skills and imaginative play. Unlike many traditional dolls, the facial features of a Waldorf doll are intentionally minimal (for example, two embroidered eyes, and a hint of a mouth). The lack of a fixed expression allows a child to develop his or her capacity for imagination and creativity. Without fixed facial features, a child can imagine the doll to have any emotion, from happy or sad to crying or laughing.

We carry many different Waldorf dolls, as well as numerous soft, huggable stuffed animals that are so nourishing to a child's senses. Today, we've collected a list of some of our best selling, most popular dolls and stuffed animals to help you on your journey of finding the perfect gifts.

Heavy Baby Weighted Waldorf Doll

This authentic Heavy Baby™ natural fiber doll is created by our skilled doll maker exclusively for Bella Luna Toys. She uses the original design and pattern created by Trish Mooney. Each doll is entirely made by hand and the result is a beautifully crafted, heirloom quality doll that is completely individual and has slightly varying dimensions. These dolls are known as "millet dolls," or "sensory babies" and were first created in 1919 in Germany. Waldorf Dolls have several distinctive features including very simply embroidered faces to allow for children's imaginations to set the emotion of their baby. This feature encourages open-ended play and creative expression.
