👼Dolls vary in the form best suited to the stage of development of the child
👧Typically, hair on a doll is made of pure wool such as mohair or boucle, ply wool or cotton. Facial feature details on a doll vary with the maker and are generally simple stitches, sometimes painted, but are always a simple suggestion and ideally neutral.
✨So the child can imagine the personality and mood of the doll and whether the doll is awake or asleep. Some dolls have small suggestions of noses. Skin, eye and mouth colors vary with each doll, ideally to reflect the colouring of the child for a first doll.
