When I designed these dolls I had
midwifes, doulas, educators, therapist and parents in mind who want to teach about the
wonders of pregnancy and birth.
They are 21 inch tall. Made by using
traditional "Waldorf" techniques and some new ways to sew
dolls. They are stuffed with clean organic sheep wool. The body is
partly weighed with granulat of Glorex. The skin is of high quality
jersey and interlock. All machine seams are sewn with a triple stitch
of tear-resistant yarn.The babies are 7 inch. The wig of wool felts
shows fontanels. They are made by using the same material as the
mothers. Arms and legs are filled with granulat of Glorex. The eyes
of the mothers are carefully embroidered. The Baby's eyes are painted
with the same attention.For the cloths of my dolls I use high quality
cotton fabrics like jersey and popeline. Most are organic cloth
(GOTS-certified), some times I recycle beautiful fabrics.A mother
doll can hold her Baby, because she has magnets in her wrists and she
can breastfeed the baby due to magnets in her breasts and the mouth
of her Baby. The magnets are hidden behind the skin fabric.The
placenta can be placed in womb by a magnet and the cord can be
disconnected with a snap.
My dolls are made from high quality,
mostly organic materials, inspired by classic waldorf dolls. But over
the years I developed my own patterns and techniques for doll
making.My dolls are OOAK. Unique pieces designed for education and
play. Although my birth giving dolls are not designed as a toy for
young children, yet they are steady processed and fulfil by the
choice of materials and the method of production, the European
guidelines for toys and bear the CE mark. My studio is placed in a
pet free and smoke free environment.
I highly recommend my dolls for school
children and to show them first with parents accompaniment.My dolls
are not suitable for children under three years due to small parts
and magnets. Choking hazard.
