This doll is very soft and plump. It feels heavier than a regular wool-stuffed doll, so it feels more real when hugging and carrying by your child (and you)! It is handmade in Northern California and exclusively offered at A Toy Garden.
The first time I was introduced to A Toy Garden was meeting Sonya Bingaman (owner) at a homeschooling conference offered by Rahima Baldwin Dancy’s Waldorf in the Home. Then, my daughter was only six years old and I remember purchasing a King Winter for our nature table, which we still bring out every Christmas. I noticed many of the toys she offers are U.S. made and exclusive. After that I purchased items online, and absolutely love the moving flag logo next to the U.S. made items. It makes me feel I’m doing something good, shopping as local as possible! When talking to other moms, I found out at least two of my friends also shop from her, and their biggest reason was the personal service she gives on the phone. I highly encourage you to visit the website and take a look at their new arrivals and everything else.
The generous folks at A Toy Garden are offering one lucky customer a Custom SweetPea Doll. The SweetPea Baby Doll is heavy and huggable and beautifully handmade in California exclusively for A Toy Garden! This custom doll will be created with your choice of color for skin tone, eyes, hair and soft velour cap and suit. Truly a doll that any child (and adult!) will love to care for!
