I am so excited to announce our newest addition to The Onesie Bear NZ!
These dolls can be made to represent the size and weight of babies from 23 weeks gestation right through to 40 weeks. They are a great way for children to learn about the size and weight of a new born baby. They are also very special because they can be made to represent angel babies and premature babies at their approximate size and weight when born.
This is very special to me because as you will know both of my babies were micro prems and I want them to one day understand how small they were.. and this is the perfect way to do just that!
Our Preemie Dolls can be made from clothing/ fabric you provide such as fleece, flannel, blankets, wraps, and baby clothing. The dolls can also be made from fabric I provide but this will be an additional cost which will vary depending on the doll size.
Our Preemie Dolls come in two options weight wise. There are our “Feels right” weight dolls which are just weighted using plastic stuffing pellets used specifically for shaping toys. These dolls turn out to be 1/2 to 2/3 of the weight of the “real” weight dolls but still feel amazingly real. There is also the “Real” weight dolls. These dolls are weighted with plastic pellets as well as metal BBs. By doing this I am able to make a doll when unclothed that will weigh what your baby did when born. (Please note this may vary depending on the scaled used)
A huge thank you needs to go to Sandy Eding and Judi Ward for this amazing pattern!
