KD’s Doll Shop Waldorf Inspired Dolls Review

I grew up with a beloved doll named Penny and she has been with me almost my entire life, bringing treasured memories. I have not been emotionally connected to a doll since then until I had locked eyes with “Summer” a magnificent 12” Waldorf inspired doll by KD’s Doll Shop.

KD’s dolls are painstakingly created by hand in the Waldorf tradition and will provide your children with a gift of love and hours of imaginative play and possibly a lifetime of memories. KD’s dolls are handmade using all natural materials…her skin is made of 100% cotton and the inside is 100% sheep’s wool. Her hair is made with handspun merino wool and her precious face comes to life with a specialized embroidery technique and her rosy cheeks are kissed with beeswax. “Summer” is so soft that you won’t want to put her down. I couldn’t stop cuddling her myself but then my three children wanted to take turns showing her around the house. Even my rough and tumble boys were so gentle with her and asked their sister if they could play with her too. Summer is dressed in a pretty cotton dress with pants and has a pouch that she wears with her favorite “friend” gnome and mushroom.

KD’s Doll Shop is owned by doll maker Kristi Deason, a home schooling mom of three children who is inspired by the Waldorf doll making tradition. Kristi’s passion for the doll making art is obvious and she puts 8-10 hours of love into each new doll that she creates. “I just fell in love with Waldorf dolls and am so inspired by the works of Kathe Kruse. It is such an interesting way to express my creativity” reflects Kristi when asked how she got started making these dolls. KD’s Dolls are works of art that are meant to be loved and played with for years to come.

Every child should have their very own Waldorf inspired doll by KD’s Doll Shop. The doll will absorb your child’s natural scent and become a treasured friend and companion. Because the dolls are made with all natural materials, it is one of the few dolls that I can allow Hannah to sleep with due to her asthma and allergies. She is so excited to finally have a friend to fall asleep with at night. In my opinion very few toys can rise to the status of family treasure but KD’s dolls are the exception. Can you imagine the look on your child’s face when they see their new doll for the very first time? Priceless…..

To purchase your own one of a kind, handmade Waldorf inspired doll go to KD’s Doll Shop and pick out your treasure.  KD’s Doll Shop will consider custom orders for the holidays too and you may email [email protected] with any questions or to place an order.
