First Year Favourites - Peppa Bonding Doll
I came across this doll while checking out a new baby boutique's website back home in Thunder Bay - Sweet Cheeks Baby Boutique. The doll is called a Peppa Bonding Doll and I fell in love with it instantly. It reminded me a lot of this rabbit thing I had for H that he loved, but unfortunately, his was a few pieces sewn together and it fell apart after a few washes.
The Pepppa Bonding Doll has some neat features:
-made from soft 100% cotton stretch terry, which is coloured with AZO-free fabric dye
-their heads are filled with pure sheep’s wool, which is known to absorb scents easily the dolls will absorb comforting scents of home, of its parents, things that are familiar for baby (parents should sleep with it for a few days to absorb their scents)
-non-toxic and also safe to chew on with no fluff to inhale
-they do not contain any parts or accents that may come loose
-their knotted hands are perfect for baby to hold on to
-hand-washable in cold water and dry on cool, gentle cycle
-manufactured in Fair Trade, i.e. produced in a way where ‘honest’ trading relations with the producers are the main issue
They come in a variety of different styles (Tino-rabbit, Sloppy-no face, Polly-doll, etc.) I personally like the Sloppy style that looks kinda like a rabbit but does not have a face.
They sell for about $22-$24 at stores or online and come in a multitude of colours.
This sounds like a great toy and I am frantically searching online to find the best price and store to order one from!
As soon as I find the best place I will post it as a comment here with this entry and if you have seen them around, please let me know where I can get my hands on one!
