Fairy Baby doll: Petunia, a swaddled fairy baby
R350.00 – R750.00
In the language of flowers, a Petunia means “being with you is soothing” and that is certainly true of this little Petunia! She is such a calm little baby, never cries, and calms everyone around her within minutes! She wears a pointy hat made from leaves with a little ribbon loop attached to the pointy end of the hat so that she can be hung up when she is not being played with.
I envisioned the fairy babies as flower buds hanging from a big beautiful tree, which was why I thought it would be a good thing for them to be able to hang if they needed to. Hanging her from a decorative hook in your little one’s bedroom will turn Petunia into a beautiful decor feature.
Dimensions of baby doll sized Petunia: length 25cm, width 12.5cm

(Measured at widest points – dimensions of the dolls are approximate as each doll is made by hand.)
I made this Fairy Baby doll with very little girls in mind – I felt that taking care of the hair and clothing of the Fairy Caravan dolls may be a little too complicated for girls younger than 3 years old, so I invented a simple baby doll for them. Although the leaves on the front of the Fairy Babies are loose to add interest and invite a peak at the Fairy Baby’s swaddling and little hand, they have been stitched into the side seams of the doll and therefore cannot come loose. The Fairy Baby’s hat has also been stitched to the doll at several points around the head, so it will not come off.
The entire Fairy Baby doll has been made from from 100% cotton fabric (excluding the organza ribbon attached to the tip of the hat). All of the fabric panels from which the Fairy Baby is made have been digitally printed with my original illustrations. The ink used for the printing process is water based, non-toxic, washable and soft to the touch.
The Fairy Baby doll has been tightly stuffed with all new polyester filling, making it soft, squishy and durable. The Fairy Baby can be carefully spot-cleaned, or hand-washed with a mild detergent. After washing and drying the Fairy Baby should be plumped up and the filling moved around a bit to make it look as good as new again.
Please view the images to see the scale of the two different sized versions of the doll.
The baby doll sized version of Petunia is ideal as a baby doll for little girls to play with. She is an ideal size for little hands to hold and she makes a lovely companion at bedtime.
The mini doll sized version of Petunia is ideal for slightly older girls to play with – especially in a doll house setting. She will also make a beautiful ornament for grownup girls who have never quite outgrown the magic of Fairyland!
