So tiny, so small, so loved by all…
I want to take a minute to say thank you to all of you that have been constantly offering homes to my dolls, even if you got to adopt them or not. This year has been hard for a lot of us and for my family doll making is the solely form of income at the moment. So I can’t even start to tell you how grateful I am for all of you that have kept my small business alive in such difficult times.
When I made the first batch of this style of babies, I wasn’t sure what was going to happen. Will people like them? Are they too simple? Are they cute enough? I actually made them to try to have a more affordable style of doll that was not a miniature. I however, was nervous about them, sometimes what I like is not necessarily what customers like. To my surprise this style has been the most loved one. It has gained me followers and new costumers, so they are definitely here to stay. I love that I get to experiment with them and try new clothes styles and hair styles with every batch I make. They are actually so much fun to make. This batch, however, will be the last one of this year. I will make some more ABC babies before the year ends, which are more affordable, especially to sell locally. I also want to try a new idea a doll maker friend suggested, so stay tuned for that. I will make more of these come January, no doubt about that.
Now let me introduce you to these new little cuties.
First born of this batch is baby Linda. This cutie is a very curious one. She is interested in everything she sees. It’s so easy to take photos of her because she actually looks at the camera, which is something very rare for babies. Linda enjoys being sang too and staring at people while they talk. She also loves snuggling and doesn’t like to have her hair on her face. I think is because the hair blocks her vision, that is why I style her hair up in pigtails. You can change her hairstyle though. Her hair can be gently brushed and styled.
Next we have baby Lucia. Don’t let that shy sweet expression on her face fool you, Lucia is quite an energetic baby. It took me hours to get these photos right. She kept looking away and moving around. I have about 40 photos of just a blur of her. Little Lucia likes kisses and bear hugs, tickles, and spins. She also has a thing with hair and earrings, so be careful because she most definitely pull those if she can get a hold of them. She will also stroke your face and give you wet kisses when you act like you’re hurt. She’s a sweetheart really.
Last but not least is Lamar. The only boy of this batch. He is a well balanced baby let me say. He likes to have some alone time to play by himself but he also enjoys having some cuddling time with a grownup or even his baby bear. Lamar enjoys finger play and rhymes. He even babbles and tries to imitate what you are saying. I think he will be saying his first words very soon. I hope whoever gets to adopt him gets to be witness to that and maybe film it so I can watch it too.
These babies are 12 inches long and are all looking for new homes. They were made as toy dolls suited for children 5 and up that do not mouth their toys. They are natural fibers dolls, filled with clean wool. Their heads have been made in the traditional Waldorf style with some needle felting to make them firmer. Their skin is heavy weight Laib Yala in Light Brown for Linda, Red Brown for Lucia, and Dark Brown for Lamar. Hands and head have been sewn to the body with a sewing machine, so they are extra strong but also floppy. Legs and body are one piece. Their eyes have been hand embroidered with cotton DMC thread. Lamar has embroidered cotton yarn black hair. Lucia has a black wild big loop mohair crocheted wig cap that has been securely hand sewn to her head. Linda has a brown wild brushable mohair hand crocheted wig cap that has been securely sewn to her head too. Their clothes are made with cotton fabrics. These dolls are pretty floppy and fun to pose.
They will each go home with the following clothes and accessories:
- Handmade long sleeve pajamas with hoodie and front pocket
- Handmade diaper with velcro closures
- Handmade booties
- A little traveling bear friend made with wool blend felt.
If you would like to see more photos of them you can check them out here in their album.
Each doll is made to be as sturdy as possible. However, small children’s play should always be monitored. Never leave a small infant unattended with a stuffed toy.
Each baby’s adoption fee is 180 USDollars plus shipping. Shipping to Mexico is free and 18 USDollars for the rest of the world.
Priority shipping is 30 USD for the US and Canada. Priority shipping to other countries would need a revised quote. If you would like priority shipping please let me know before hand so I can adjust the shipping price. I highly recommend this option if you want to have a better chance to get them before Christmas.
If you would like to adopt any of these babies, make sure you comment on this post stating the name of the baby doll: Linda, for the light brown girl with pigtails, Lucia for the brown girl with green eyes, and Lamar for the black baby boy. If you want more than one, make sure you write the names in the priority you would like them. If there is more than one person interested in any of the dolls, I will draw a name. However, I will try to divide them as fair as I can to give opportunity to the most people to bring one home. I will take entries for these babies until tomorrow Monday November 23 at 5pm CDT.
By commenting you agree that you are 18 years or older. Please do not comment on behalf of someone else, that is just not fair for others. Once a family has been chosen I will send a PayPal invoice that is due upon receipt. Babies that are adopted tomorrow will ship on Wednesday.
If any of these babies do not find a home by the time stated above they will be listed in my shop and announced on Facebook and Instagram.
I hope these babies have made your day a little brighter. Hope you fall in love with them the same way I have and that you get to adopt one of them at least.
Stay safe, healthy, and positive.
Read you soon.
