Leo is a Mini Ciao Bimba doll inspired by Waldorf doll making and is perfect for children. What we say at My Doll Best Friend is that dolls are one of the most important toys for boys and girls alike so confidently select Leo for whomever you have in mind.
Leo is 40cm tall and wears a cute multi piece outfit and backpack with toy inside. His toy is a little brown bear. Leo is firm to hold but does not stand up alone. His head is sculpted using traditional European doll making techniques and he has a brown mohair boucle wig that was crocheted before being fitted and stitched in place. Leo's neutral expression means that a child can project their own emotions on their doll during play and come up with imaginative stories where the doll has all kinds of emotions!
Ciao Bimba has sourced the materials that are natural and safe for children. For example the wool they use to fill their dolls comes directly from local farmers who wash and card the wool themselves. They then send it to a lab to be tested to ensure there are absolutely no pesticides present. All fibres and fabrics are safe for children, and the dolls themselves are suitable for children who are age 3+
Mini Ciao Bimba dolls wear clothing made from Liberty fabric. Leo's clothing is made from Little Treasures Liberty print fabric. The dolls are made by a trained team of doll makers at the Ciao Bimba workshop in Bulgaria. The doll designer is the very talented Waldorf inspired doll artist, Maria Asenova, who hand makes sought after collectible dolls.
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.
