I'm looking for a perfect cloth/Waldorf style baby doll for DD2 for Christmas when she'll be 16 months. We have lots of sweet baby dolls (all cloth) from DD1. They get lots of play, but DD1 never attached to one special doll. DD2 is super sweet with dolls. I'd like her to have her own special doll. I'm having trouble finding one I love. I've searched several toy stores as well as etsy. It's finding a nicely formed face that I'm really struggling with. I want the doll to be a baby - not a kid. I'm looking to spend roughly $50 at most ($25-35 would be awesome). Any suggestions?

We got a Peppa doll from Nova Naturals when DD2 turned 1:

Nothing fancy, but it's sweet. DD2 likes her face a lot (and points to "eye!" and "nooos", even though there's no nose there...)

She unwrapped it herself, and she really seemed to be able to tell from the beginning that it was HER dolly. (So we got another in case of unfortunate events, and I can vouch that this one survives machine washing pretty well...)

I was going to suggest that one too. DD loves it (although she loves the plastic baby my mom got her more!)

I was going to suggest the same doll. We got one for DS last year and it's a nice doll, and a nice size at 13" too.

Life with a toddler: it's not so much the volume, it's the pitch!

I'm thinking of ordering 2 of these to encourage as lovey/sleeping companions - are the very soft throughout the whole doll?  Some of the stuffed animals that my DD brings into bed with us aren't very comfortable if they happen to get rolled onto in the middle of the night due to compact stuffing in the limbs, etc.

 

Thanks for your help.
