I am wondering if anyone knows where I can find an inexpensive waldorf boy doll.
My son has 1 already but, it was $98.
I want him to have another one... maybe 6 or 8 inches this time.
but, I want to spend less than $30.
If you have any links, LMK.

I am looking for something like the Magic Cabin dolls w/o the $$$ pricetag. Has anyone seen patterns available online to make your own, not the kits they sell but something even cheaper? I saw some beautiful ones at a LLL conference but was short of cash that day. I just can't bring myself to pay soo much for the dolly when I can sew KWIM?? Please snailmama if you find any links to patterns can you share thanks

Vanna's Mom, if you want to make your own you might try looking for some of the books on Waldorf-style dollmaking via Interlibrary Loan. Places like www.achildsdream.com have the fabric for skin and yarn for hair (they also carry the dollmaking books -- you can get a list of titles for ILL that way). You may well be able to find what you need in a local fabric shop and yarn shop, for that matter -- the hair is generally just a nice mohair and the skin is cotton knit. And the clothes, of course, are whatever you want them to be.
