Unique and beautifully made, Bamboletta dolls can easily become the go to toy when your little one needs that extra comfort. However you better get your order in early. Made with all natural materials, these eco friendly dolls can be hard to come by. Because the demand for them is so high, you’re lucky to actually get the opportunity to purchase one. Beautifully handcrafted, the doll makers go through a tedious step by step process, from dying the wool to creating each doll’s hair. They use wool stuffing and hand-embroider the faces. Even the doll’s clothing are handmade. The workmanship is obvious and it is why they are like nothing you’ll find in any traditional toy store. Bamboletta dolls are truly Eco-friendly.
