Good Finds: SweetPea Doll

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!

To enter the giveaway, please leave a comment on this post by Monday, October 1, 2012 midnight pacific time.  This giveaway is open to U.S. residents only.

    These dolls are so adorable! My little daughter age 4 would love one. She only has only one baby ( a plastic head baby) and cares for it every day lovingly. She is ready for a much needed upgrade, and is ready to care for it too! good luck little sweetie girl!

    These dolls would put any one in a better mood. They just make you smile and want to hug them. My granddaughter lives in Hawaii….so very far from Virginia. She would love this hug!!

    These are so very sweet and perfect for a small child :) Thank you for a chance to win one!

    Hello and thank you for this offer. I work in a Waldorf Kindergarten with some friends who regularly need to feel extra weight on them and hard squeezes. They love school but need as many friends to support them throughout the morning. It would be great to share this doll with all the children who play in our room, especially since our baby doll is out for repairs.

  8. Nicole Barrett says:

    Every child should have one of these dolls. I would love to win it then donate it to a child without one and without the means to getting one. I love these dolls and appreciate the time, effort, and skill that goes into making them.

  9. Turtle says:

    How wonderful! I know someone who would adore this new best friend!

  10. Jennifer says:

    I love A Toy Garden! We’ve been doing our Christmas shopping there for a few years now. And those SweetPea dolls are so cute! I know a special boy who would love to hold one.

  13. Marilyn E says:

    SweetPea as sweet as can be! I’d love one,hope SweetPea picks me.

  14. Cheryl Ambrose says:

    This would make the sweetest holiday gift! My granddaughter loves babies. What a wonderful soft doll.

  15. Jill says:

    Hello and thank you for this offer,

    I would love to share this heavy doll with my friends in my two Waldorf kindergarten classes. Some of our kids really need the weighted toy and something to squeeze tight. We all need as much support in our class that we can get, right?! Our little baby doll has been out for repairs so this Sweet Pea is really needed.

  16. Shannon says:

    Such a beautiful doll.

  17. Ellen says:

    My little 18month old would love one of these sweet dolls. She loves babies. I’ve been planning to make her a doll like this someday.

  18. Ellen Peterson says:

    I have been an admirer of A Toy Garden for years. My daughter loves the washable wool tank top undershirt. I bought one four years ago, then bought four recently — next size up plus some for friends.

  19. Dinonut says:

    Thanks for offering this opportunity. The lovable doll would be perfect for my grandchildren. I love the idea of the added weight for cuddling.

  20. Betsy says:

    So adorable….I have been looking for a good baby doll for my little one!
