There are so many reasons why we love our Heavy Baby™ Weighted Waldorf Dolls and why they are perennial bestsellers! They are soothing to the senses, cuddly and warm, comfortable to snuggle, weighted for reassurance and grounding, and they will last for generations of play.
This Heavy Baby arrives in a luxuriously soft cotton velour blue bunting and has a light skin tone.
Heavy babies originated over a hundred years ago in Germany to emulate an actual newborn baby. 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.
The body of this sweet doll 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.
These beautiful weighted handmade dolls, known as "millet dolls," or "sensory babies," are filled with organic, lavender-scented millet and are designed to provide a calming and therapeutic effect when held on a lap. Heavy Baby is just right for the child who needs to "lug," and has a settling and reassuring quality for those in need of extra sensory attention.
The combinations of the weight and the wool stuffing, which warms the longer a child holds the baby, provides the sensation of holding a real baby and encourages nurturing.
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 enhances imagination and creativity during play.
