Zara is a new Mini Ciao Bimba Waldorf inspired doll for children. She's made in a series of 50 dolls and is warm, soft and cuddly. Zara is 40cm tall and is made natural fabrics and filled with wool. She is firm but does not stand up on her own. Her head is sculpted using traditional European doll making techniques and she has a mohair boucle wig.
Zara's skin colour is dark brown and her hair colour is dark brown and short. Her wig is crocheted and then carefully stitched to her head. Zara wears a brown backpack and inside it is her toy. We've included all the photos we took at the trade fair so that you can see what she looks like. In the final photo where she stands with Leo, you will see her little toy beside her feet. This toy fits into her brown backpack. Zara's neutral expression means that a child can project their own emotions on their doll during play.
Not enough is said about the importance of a child's sensory experience: it's so imortant for a toy to nourish a child's senses. Compare the sensory experience of a child cuddlng a plastic doll and then cuddling a wool filled doll. These dolls are made for cuddling and children find their materials very soothing.
All the materials that have made Zara, her clothes and her toy are natural fibres and fabrics. Ciao Bimba source the wool they use to fill their dolls directly from local farmers who wash and card the wool themselves. They then send it to a lab to be tested for pesticides before using it to make the dolls, so they are absolutely safe and healthy.
The Ciao Bimba 40cm dolls like Zara wear clothing made from Liberty fabric. Zara's dungares are Little Treasures Liberty print fabric. The dolls and clothing are made by a trained team of doll makers at the Ciao Bimba workshop in Sofia, Bulgaria to the design created by Waldorf doll artist, Maria Asenova.
Why does it matter what exact materials are used? It matters to parents and grandparents to know that the doll that their child will cuddle up with at night is made from the finest natural materials. For those parents whose children have allergies, natural toys are especially important.
