Perfect for hugs, snuggles, and for times when soothing is needed, our beautifully handmade, bestselling Heavy Baby™ Weighted Waldorf Dolls will be a part of your family for years to come. This Heavy Baby comes in a velvety soft rose bunting and has a light skin tone.
Created in 1919 in Germany, these dolls are known as "millet dolls," or "sensory babies." This exquisite and perfectly weighted doll is filled with organic, lavender-scented millet. When your child holds this doll or places it in their lap, it will promotes a sense of calm and nervous system regulation.
The wool stuffing warms up the longer a child holds the baby, creating an even deeper sensory experience. The weight simulates holding a real baby which encourages empathy, reverence, and nurturing. For children who need the experience of "lugging," Heavy Baby is just right and provides extra sensory attention.
Waldorf Dolls allow for children's imaginations to set the emotion of the baby and encourage creativity during play which is the reason for their distinctive head-shape and simple embroidery.
Made by our skilled doll-maker, exclusively for Bella Luna, these genuine Heavy Baby™ natural fiber dolls are from the original design and pattern created by Trish Mooney. Each doll is created entirely by hand so that every one is completely individual with slightly varying dimensions.
