Heirloom Story Doll 17" | 9
Every child deserves a best friend. One who keeps secrets, invites them to worlds that only reside in their imagination, and one who will be there to comfort them when the world seems too much.
From their intentionally designed simple hand-embroidered faces to their linen and cotton silhouette, every detail has been researched and poured over. These dolls feature a minimalist aesthetic that allows your child's imagination to blossom. Having a neutral face on the doll lets children imagine more easily what emotions the doll can be experiencing, allowing them to work through different emotional and social development occurring in their worlds.
In addition, we recognize that our heirlooms are an investment. We want to make sure we help you make it the best investment for your family. We offer additional clothing separates for the development of fine motor skills that has been designed to work for your child’s hands. We work hard to produce new clothing patterns available separately so that if you're looking to create your own unlimited wardrobe for your doll, you can!
Materials & Care
Each doll in handcrafted start to finish, focusing on sustainability practices, durability and function. They are made from a premium cotton with linen on the back and front of the head for hair. This is the option I recommend for children between two and three years of age. For ages three and up, I offer customization and choice of our Nepalese handmade wool felt buns or a selection of yarn hair. For more information on our hair materials please see Our Material Story section under the SUPPORT tab.
Our Heirloom Dolls stand approximately 17” tall. They are firmly hand-stuffed and shaped using 100% new hypoallergenic poly fibre that is made in Canada. They have been triple stitched at the arms, and triple stitched closed for maximum durability.
This Classic Doll comes with a linen Flutter Sleeve Romper, which has been designed for a roomy fit, allowing easier dressing and undressing, and has fully finished seams for maximum durability and playability. She also features hand-painted watercolour cheeks and comes with a removable bamboo headband.
Each doll we make is handmade. The nature of handmade means that no two dolls are exactly a like.
Dolls with the simple linen hair only can be placed in a tied pillowcase and laundered on a cold gentle cycle and laid flat to dry. To prolong the life of the doll I recommend spot clean. Dolls with hair are spot clean only.
Ages three and up. Yarn Hair is for three and up. Supervised play recommended.
