Children want to have their own dolls in childhood. Because they are good friends of children, and we know the importance of dolls to them. Yoyoholiday hopes to make Waldorf dolls that are cute and safe. Let the children have a happy childhood.
Most mass produced dolls are either plastic or a combination of plastic and poly stuffing. To produce the materials used in store bought dolls creates pollution. As well there is much concern over plastics, PVC to be specific. Have you ever smelled a new doll, straight out of the box? That strong plastic smell? Those are off-gases. I can honestly say I do not want my child breathing in those vapors nor putting that toy in their mouths. These materials and the mass production of them allows for manufacturers to keep costs down and make more profit.
Waldorf dolls are traditionally made with cotton interlock and wool. These materials are all simple, healthy, natural and completely sustainable. There are no concerning off-gases and no issues with pollution. This does make them more expensive. As well each doll is hand made in a unique way. This can take several hours.
A child will have their doll for years, if you help them care for them they will last a very long time and be able to be passed down.
That’s why we do this.
