Forever Friend

Astraea

Regular price $425.00 CAD

Hello! This is Astraea. Her skin is sunkissed in tone and her eyes are grey. Her hair is made with various wool and mohair yarns - almost all hand dyed and hand stitched to the head. These dolls are stuffed with clean, carded Canadian wool and their skin is made with special cotton tricot from the Netherlands. 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 with so much love and care put into creating them!

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. 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. 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.

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 info@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!
