The small Waldorf doll Apalipalka for children 6 months or older. The doll is 3,5 inch tall.

The soft baby doll Waldorf Apalipalka is small enough that she easily fits in daughter’s tiny hands.
Can become your child’s best small friend – she’s pleasant to hug and snuggle and your child will sleep tight holding her in bed.
The Apalipalka Sleeping Doll arrives in a beautiful craft-box making her a complete gift for you child.
I make every single seam with my own hands – without the use of a sewing machine, – with a special sturdy hand-seam and solid thread. This, in fact, makes a doll more durable, since a handmade seam is stronger than that of a sewing machine. While making my dolls, I fill them with love and warmth for every child.
A special Waldorf technique is used to form the doll’s head, which allows it to keep its shape even during washing.
I create my Sleeping Dolls in soft colors with their eyes closed to tune a child to a good night sleep.
The body is made of the softest velour and 100% cotton. Her organic bonnet hat is made of natural linen yarn and it is sewn directly to her head and cannot be removed. Apalipalka’s body is stuffed with ecological sheep wool.
Her eyes, mouth and hair are embroidered with German cotton mouline thread. Her face is made of a special puppet-doll knitwear from the Netherlands.
The materials I choose for my dolls are all natural, of the highest quality, and completely child-safe. The combination of different textures exposes your child to various tactile impressions and helps develop his or her tactile sense.
Any child over 6 months old will enjoy the doll, and collectors will admire her simple beauty and the fact that she is lovingly made with fine materials.
She is soft enough to cuddle and cradle, durable enough to be played with or put to bed time and time again.
The Sleeping Waldorf doll can help you create a special ritual for your child going to bed every night, and during the day Apalipalka will accompany your child in all kinds of games.
☀Whenever my 1-year-old daughter and I were about to go out, I asked, “Which toy should we take with us?” It was important to me that my daughter’s playthings were made of natural materials, and they had to be small enough to fit in a pocket. Also, I wanted her to carry quiet toys, the kind that would not clatter if she dropped them, in case we were headed to church on Sunday or some other place where childhood noisiness wouldn’t be appreciated. The solution struck me when Franchesca, a customer from the USA, contacted me with an interesting request. “Are you able to make your Waldorf doll Apalipalka, already in great demand in your online shop, in a smaller size, maybe three and a half inches (nine centimeters)?” she asked. “Absolutely, sweetheart!” I answered with a smile on my face.
Thus, the Miniature Waldorf Apalipalka doll was born, made of eco wool, the softest nicky velour produced in Germany, and adorned with an adorable hat made of fine Portuguese linen yarn. Like all of my dolls, this one is completely handmade, not one stitch of it touched by a sewing machine.
Now, there is never a question about which toy will go on our journeys with us.
I recommend hand-washing Apalipalka at between 30-40 degrees C (85-105 degrees F). Dry her naturally – face up, far from artificial heating devices.
