Sweetpea Heavy Doll

Filled with 4 pounds of millet and dressed in real newborn baby clothes this unique baby doll is as close as your child will ever get to having their own real baby to love. Any toddler or older child will just adore snuggling up with their little sweetpea. Very well made from all natural materials, these little friends will last and last — making them well worth the money.

Bamboletta Doll

Bamboletta Dolls are some of the most highly sought after dollies on the market. Unsurpassed in quality and created from 100% natural materials, these sweeties are handmade by a small team of moms and dads with lots of love and attention. Each lovely girl or boy is a completely unique, one of a kind friend with her own little personality. The little ladies sell out very quickly though so if you are interested in buying one make sure to visit their website and read their instructions for how to secure a doll.

It’s no secret that we love Real Wooden Toys here at Mothering. The simple, old-fashioned design of all of their creations is something truly special in today’s world. Jungle Jim the Springing Monkey is no exception. Hang him anywhere in your house and give him a gentle pull and he’ll bounce around forever. Adds a magical touch to a child’s bedroom and kids love to watch little Jim go up and down.

Natural Wooden Maine Dollhouse

This new dollhouse from master toymaker David Smalley of Elves and Angels shouts excellent design and superior craftsmanship. We couldn’t believe how sturdy and strong it was, and we love how the design allows for more than one child to play at once. At 2 feet tall, this gorgeous dollhouse is big enough to fill with a wide variety of doll furniture and the interior of the dollhouse is laid out in such a way as to provide easy access to all of the spaces. Perfect for any doll, elf or fairy family! If you’re looking for a dollhouse that will be played with for many years to come, you won’t want to miss this one.

Sunset Stable

Good old fashioned fun is the name of the game with this handmade stable from Elves and Angels. The little doors on the stables open and close and the provided fencing lets your child’s fantasies run wild. The construction is excellent, as it is with all of toymaker David Smalley’s products. Well worth the investment for years of imaginative play.
