Bamboletta

We are very happy to be the only place in the world other than at Bamboletta themselves where you can get these beautiful Waldorf inspired dolls

They are handmade from natural fibers and materials like wool, silk, and cotton. Natural fibers are warm to the touch compared to synthetic and plastic materials used in the mass-produced dolls. The wool stuffing absorbs the child’s warmth, producing a soothing effect and comforting to touch. The wool also warms to body temperature which increases the sensory benefits for a child. The dolls are not hard or cool to the touch but feel comfortable against the body or in your arms. They also have a distinctive smell that is quite sweet but delicate to the nose.

The facial features of Bamboletta dolls are intentionally made to be quite simple, consisting of two dots for eyes and a thin line for the mouth; similar to the way that many children start to draw faces. The simple features with natural, pleasant expressions are designed to inspire creativity and imagination. Depending on the child’s mood, the doll can seen to be happy, sleepy, sad, or even angry and crying. Their wonderfully delicate facial features emancipates with sweetness and innocence, and arms wide open, calls upon to the child. Children are able to use them to express their thoughts and emotions, and in pretend play.

You will find that the Bamboletta doll will quickly become a friend, a true companion with whom a child shares her (or his) feelings, hopes, dreams, and adventures. Each Bamboletta is a one-of-a-kind, high-quality handmade heirloom piece, crafted with love and care, to be enjoyed for generations. Read more about the benefits of playing with Waldorf dolls here.

Bamboletta Types
The 3 types of Bamboletta dolls we carry

Little Buddy (leftmost in the photo)
These sweet dolls stand about 10 inches tall. They are made with cotton ‘skin’ and stuff them with wool from Western Canada. Their hair is made of natural materials such as wool, alpaca, mohair. This is a traditional Waldorf style doll with the body shape – arms outstretched for lots of hugs. They come with a simple outfit and underpants but cute shoes.

Sitting Friends (rightmost in the photo):
This doll was created for children (and their moms) that wanted a softer, more bendable doll. They measure 15″ tall . This pattern was developed to mimic the traditional doll with it’s rounded feet and outstretched arms but with movable limbs, it’s perfect for tea parties. This doll would be good for ages 3 and up, but, again, it’s a personal preference for the child. Like the other dolls, the skin is made with that fantastic cotton ‘skin’ and stuffed with wool. Did you know that wool is absolutely amazing for children? It’s naturally antibacterial, warms to the touch and absorbs scent so the doll smells like ‘home’. They come with underpants, a super cute outfit and shoes

Cuddle Dolls (centre in the picture)
She’s a bit like a small version of our Sitting Doll but there are some differences. She stands 13″ tall, is ‘thinner’ then the regular dolls and has longer legs with feet.. She is made with the same materials as all the other dolls. She comes with an outfit (2 piece), underpants and crocheted shoes.

A few words from the creator of Bamboletta dolls, the amazing Christina Platt:
One thing I do recommend for people with small children is that they tie the long hair back or braid it until the child is ready to play ‘hairdresser’. It’s made with natural materials and some shedding is to be expected but this will stop as the yarns age a bit and will ‘felt up’ a little. It’s kind of like natural hair when it’s freshly washed and is all fluffy, it takes a bit of time for your hair to calm down. Natural dolls have a feel of their own and will age with your child and hopefully will be passed along to their child! I feel VERY strongly about using natural materials hence the price point (as well as the labour put in between all of us sewing mama’s!).
