When I asked my son what he thought his Bamboletta doll should look like he told me there should be a vacuum on his shirt. Yeah. Right.
Weeks later when our Bamboletta dolls arrived (each doll is custom made to your specifications so there is approximately a six week wait), what should we see staring up at us but the two cutest little faces in the world… and one little doll was proudly sporting a vacuum on his shirt!
To say that we fell in love at first sight would be an understatement.
Made from all-natural materials (namely, cotton and wool), a Bamboletta doll (starting at $135) is truly a doll your children will pass along to their children. Though the initial investment is something you might anticipate spending on all of the dolls your child will ever have in their entire life, it’s important to keep in mind that these beautiful soft friends are handmade by a team of moms from start to finish. With carded wool stuffing (wool is antibacterial, warms to the touch and absorbs the smells of home), sweet embroidered faces, funky clothing (including heartbreakingly adorable underwear and a hand-knit sweater for each doll), every Bamboletta doll is a work of art.
And if you’re looking for a few extra goodies, don’t miss the amazing clothing and slings by SillyCon (my daughter loves wearing her Bamboletta doll around the house), the crown sets (cute and matchy for doll and child), and the oh-so-adorable tiny wooden sewing machines.
