Waldorf cuddle doll, and this doll is no exception to the Waldorf principles. This doll is suitable for babies on up. Made of cotton velour and stuffed with wool, it's beautifully soft and cuddly. Since Daniel has started sleeping in a toddler bed, he insists on "baby" being their with him. Wool dolls are known to absorb scents, and are often used as bonding or comforting dolls, and I wonder if this appeals to Daniel as well. As you can see, the face has little detail, allowing children to imagine facial expressions etc and to fit the doll into different situations. The Waldorf cuddle dolls are made by a group of mothers and grandmothers in Argentina to benefit a local Waldorf school. I like the idea of supporting a Canadian business, and also supporting a group trying to help the children in their community.
Daniel's doll has been loved rather aggressively for a few months now, and it has held up well. The hat knot has been sucked or chewed on, and looks a little grungy, but he doesn't mind. It survived a bath the other day with no adverse effects - Daniel decided to wash baby in the sink while I was on the phone! :) I just hung it up on the line to dry, as the wool stuffing can't be dried in the machine, and baby was good to go again by sleep time.
