Heavy Baby Weighted Waldorf Doll - Sage Bunting with Medium Skin Tone
- Low stock - 1 item left
Soothing to the senses, cuddly and warm, comfortable to snuggle, weighted for reassurance and grounding, these are some of the reasons why we love our Heavy Baby™ Weighted Waldorf Dolls, and honestly, they might be the most huggable dolls we've ever held.
This Heavy Baby arrives in a luxuriously soft cotton velour sage bunting with a medium skin tone.
This is the genuine Heavy Baby™ natural fiber doll made exclusively for Bella Luna Toys from the original design and pattern created by Trish Mooney. Our skilled doll-maker lovingly makes every one by hand so that each one is unique with slightly varying dimensions.
Originating in Germany in 1919, the Heavy Baby was created to mirror an actual infant. The distinctive shape of the doll's head as well as the simply embroidered facial features mark them as Waldorf Dolls. Both of these characteristics allow for children's imaginations to set the emotion of the baby and encourage imagination and creativity during play.
These beautiful weighted handmade dolls, known as "millet dolls," or "sensory babies," are filled with organic, lavender-scented millet. The wool stuffing warms the longer a child holds the baby and combined with the weight, it gives the feel of holding a real baby and encourages empathy and nurturing. Heavy Baby is just right for the child who needs to "lug," providing a settling and reassuring quality for those in need of extra sensory attention.
The doll's body is made from unbleached cotton muslin, organic skin tone knit, and filled with wool and organic millet scented with lavender. The outer bunting is made from ultra-soft cotton velour and is removable for washing.
