Forever Friend

Penelope

Regular price $395.00 CAD

Hello! This is Penelope. Her skin is sunkissed in tone and her eyes are green. Her hair is made with various wool and mohair yarns - almost all hand dyed. Her clothing is made with all natural fibres that make it unique and one of a kind.  She has a secret pocket in which I've included a small crystal heart (that I've put some love into!) and a little note. These dolls are so special and unique!

Ages 5 and up due to the loose crystal. Can be a choking hazard for the wee ones.

They are 20-22" tall and made with the same natural woolie goodness that our other dolls are made with. Their limbs and body are longer and leaner and floppy - similar to the sitting and cuddle dolls.

I'm hoping that parents will put little love notes in the little pocket for their child. Or, if you are getting a doll for yourself - I like to imagine that you'd write a little something to your nine year old self. My intention and desire for this doll was to represent that time in a little ones life that is the cusp of teenage hood. Around 9 - 11 when all things feel possible and magic is still very much alive. Before the movement through those teenage years. I think this time is when you are really you - who you are by essence. It ebbs and flows and develops though the years, of course, but I feel it's clear around this age. I have an 11 year old now and I know who he really is - the sometimes snarky preteen comes through and has to while he's testing boundaries - but I know what is inside his heart. So, maybe you can write something to your nine year old self - something to tell her to not forget or to hold onto. I've rambled a bit here, these dolls just make me so emotional.

Okay, pinching of knees and elbows are optional. Only on this style of doll. Personally, I like it without pinching but many people like it so if you are team pinching - let me know by emailing us at info@bamboletta.com. We can also change the name or hairstyle if you'd like - or add freckles!

We would love to personalize your doll by adding freckles, messy buns or a name change! If you'd like any of these email us at freckles@bamboletta.com with your order number and doll name.

We ship worldwide, each Tuesday.

Due to the handmade nature of our dolls, each is one of a kind - unique as your child.

P.S. Bamboletta hair is made from natural fiber yarns. Just like real hair, it can become a bit frizzy or matted, adding to the beautiful character of your doll!
