Our exclusive Sweet Pea™ Weighted Waldorf Doll is heavy and huggable. It is fully limbed with both arms and legs, and is weighted to give it the feel of holding a real baby. A doll made with care, this baby is loved by children and adults alike. We have found that our children care for their Sweet Peas™ with the same reverence they use with real newborns. Often used in therapy settings, this heirloom-quality doll is comforting and made to last.
The sweet facial features are hand sewn with a non-specific expression so different emotions can be incorporated into doll play. Cheeks are hand-colored with beeswax. Peeking from beneath every cap is a soft fringe made from mohair.
Sweet Pea™ measures almost 20 inches tall and is gender neutral. Each doll wears a 100% cotton velour suit and cap that are not removable. They are available in 4 colors: rose, sage green, sky blue, and raspberry. Face and hands are made from organic cotton skin fabric available in fair, beige, light brown, and dark brown. See skin fabric swatch in photo for reference.
Each doll is filled with roughly 2 1/2 pounds of organic millet and wool that gives it a pleasant firmness that feels like a real baby, but is so cuddly and squeezable. The wool and millet stuffing are unique because they retain the child's body heat, giving it a warm, lifelike quality that makes it such a comforting friend for snuggling and naptime. The millet has been lightly scented with organic lavender oil.
Each doll is handmade in the USA by a Waldorf kindergarten teacher with years of experience in crafting dolls and toys by hand that children cherish. We are so proud to offer Sweet Pea™ as A Toy Garden exclusive creation.
The pattern was originally designed by Sonya Bingaman, exclusively for A Toy Garden, and revised in 2020 by Diana Stoycheva.
Can be spot-cleaned with a damp cloth. Because it is filled with millet, this doll cannot be submerged in water or cleaned in a washing machine.
Chosen as one of Mothering Magazine's Top Picks of 2013.
