My son (almost two) loves to play with an old baby doll my grandma gave him from a garage sale. The thing stinks of "baby powder" and all I can think of when its near is all the chemicals its probably off gassing (really the thing sweetly stinks).
Anyway, I've wanted to get him a Waldorf doll to replace it, but the price of these dolls (though I'm sure are worth it) are out of our range (I am NOT skilled enough to make one). I'm worried I'd spend the money and this would turn out to be a phase he outgrew in a month... To the point, I saw that a diaper store (Tiny Birds Organics) I was shopping at sold Waldorf style dolls for MUCH cheaper than I've ever seen. They are made as part of The Q'ewar Project which is supposed to help a community in Peru. I'm a little curious/concerned about how they make these dolls so cheap. Has anyone ever heard of this project? Do you think I can trust that its legit and not taking advantage of these doll makers?
Thanks in advance!
It looks like their regular 16" size are right about on par price wise as many of the waldorf dolls I see. I think they are selling them for $119 (on sale). They have some smaller dolls that are cheaper, but you can find 12" or even 9" dolls for $50 - $60 elsewhere too.
