Children treasure handmade dolls. Making a simple doll for a child is a gift for life, that encourages the magic of creative play. Kinder Dolls shows how to create handcrafted dolls from natural materials. A range of simple, colourful designs will inspire both beginners and experienced doll makers alike. These dolls are old favourites, originating in Waldorf Steiner kindergartens where parents make dolls together for their children, and for the school.

This handbook on Waldorf dolls is accessible to beginners, and is specially geared toward helping children learn to play actively with dolls of integrity made from natural materials. These dolls leave children's imaginations free. You can start with easy to make baby dolls, and then use the general sewing techniques to tackle the limbed dolls and clothes.

Here are: ten different designs including soft, baggy, pouch, angel, sack and limbed dolls: colourful and pretty ways of making dolls' hair: twelve basic clothes patterns and ethnic variations: help with tools, techniques and materials: safety guidelines and sewing methods.
