Choosing the Right Doll for Your Child

Posted by on

Our gorgeous collection of dolls are designed and handmade ethically in Australia. Using high quality natural materials, each doll is created to be as individual as your little one.

This diversity of character and design encourages creativity and ignites the imagination. Each Dolly Henry doll is made using heirloom techniques alongside modern design influences, creating dolls that are not only current with interior and style trends, but bear the hallmark of tradition and quality that will stand the test of time.

Each Dolly Henry doll encourages sensory play, with a variety of natural fibres including merino wool and tactile stitching techniques. Most of the dolls in our collection are designed to be interactive; removable clothing and accessories helps develop good hand-eye coordination and encourages a sense of individual expression and style.

In an age where children are spending an increasing amount of time on digital devices, playing with soft toys and spending time away from the screen is vital in encouraging a vivid imagination, good communication and problem solving skills through story telling and interactive play.

We have a variety of different styles, and characters in store for you to choose from, a special friend to create magical childhood moments.

The Woodland Friend Collection

With a variety of quirky and fun woodland animals to choose from, each doll in this collection has his or her own story. Featuring interactive clothing and a diversity in colour, character and style, these dolls encourage individuality and freedom in expression.

Although each doll has a name, we recommend you allow your child to give the doll his or her own name. The dolls are suitable for both boys and girls, we don't believe in placing restrictions on creativity and play through gender-stereotyping. All children need to have the freedom to explore the world as they see it through play, and having a little woodland companion to express themselves through is what magical childhoods are made of.

All our dolls are handmade to the highest standard, but they are not intended for children three years or under. Parental supervision is always recommended, and as the dolls are both practical and stylish, they make a lovely addition to the nursery decor while baby is too small to play with them.

Dolly Henry Dumplings

Inspired by and made using traditional Waldorf/Steiner techniques, the Dolly Henry Dumplings are sculpted into tiny little characters of their own, reflecting the features and attributes of a small child. Each doll is made over a course of several days, from their fuzzy little heads to their dimpled cheeks, and miniature clothing. 

These dolls are the ultimate childhood companion, with the magic of pixies woven into their very fibers. They give the most wonderful cuddles and encourage a sense of responsibility and care-taking in children. Their clothing and accessories are completely removable, creating good hand-eye coordination (putting hands through sleeves and tying up ribbons) whilst igniting the imagination for story telling and role-play.

A Dolly Henry Dumpling is also the perfect older-sibling gift to help with the transition of a new baby in the house.
