  • Lucy is one of Ciao Bimba's Mini Darling dolls which take the longest to hand make of all of their dolls: more than 12 hours each.

    She is wearing such a pretty dress! It's made from Capel Liberty fabric in grey with pink contrast. It's a special dress because she is going to afternoon tea with her godmother. Her glorious mop of mohair weft curls is dressed with an oversized flower, with its own little face!

    Lucy is an absolutely beautiful cloth doll inspired by the Waldorf pedagogy whose teaching is that through sensory play a child becomes more imaginative, and even perceptive. The child develops those senses its experiencing, building the neurological pathways associated with each one. Children find sensory play therapeutic and even soothing.

    She has been made from natural materials that are safe for children. Her sunkissed skin is made from the finest jersey fabric, imported from Switzerland. Her wool filling comes directly from local farmers in Bulgaria. 

    Lucy is firm but does not stand up on her own. Her head is sculpted using needle felting techniques which is how doll artists manage to create such a darling face. Waldorf dolls have mostly neutral faces so that a child can project its emotions on to the doll, so the doll might be happy or sad; laughing or crying. It's so important for a child to develop its imagination as it plays.

    The dolls are made by a trained team of doll makers at the Ciao Bimba workshop in Bulgaria's capital. The design is very special as it has been 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.
