Get ready to welcome our beautifully handmade, bestselling Heavy Baby™ Weighted Waldorf Doll who will be a part of your family for years of love and play.
This Heavy Baby arrives in a velvety soft blue bunting and has a medium skin tone.
Created in 1919 in Germany, these dolls are known as "millet dolls," or "sensory babies." This heirloom-quality doll is perfectly weighted with organic, lavender-scented millet. When your child holds this doll or places it in their lap, it promotes nervous system regulation and a sense of calm and focus. The longer a child holds the baby, the warmer the wool stuffing will get, creating an even deeper sensory experience.
The weight simulates the feeling of holding an actual baby to encourage empathy and nurturing. For children who need the experience of "lugging," Heavy Baby provides extra sensory attention.
Waldorf Dolls traditionally have a distinctive head shape and intentionally have very simple embroidered faces to allow for children's imaginations to set the emotion of their baby. This feature encourages open-ended play and creative expression.
Made exclusively for Bella Luna, these genuine Heavy Baby™ natural fiber dolls are created by our skilled doll maker who uses the original design and pattern created by Trish Mooney. Each doll is created by hand resulting in a doll that is completely individual and has slightly varying dimensions.
Some other features of our Heavy Baby Dolls:
- Bunting-style dolls, their bodies are sack-like and do not have legs.
- The body of this huggable doll is made from unbleached cotton muslin and organic skin tone knit.
