Play to Your Heart’s Delight
Play is an essential part of a child’s healthy development. Through playing, children mimic the world around them. By simply playing with a doll, they build the skills to grow into a nurturing, responsive person who interacts comfortably with those around them.
Dolls are also a way to introduce the concept that we don’t all look the same. While children treasure having a doll that looks just like them… it’s a mind-opening experience to care for and play with dolls that have different skin tones and features.
That’s one of the many reasons we love beautiful Tansy Handmade Dolls. Not only do they celebrate the beauty of all children – with freckles, scars, or glasses – each doll is made from all-natural materials. You know these dolls won’t off-gas or create a harmful breathing environment for your child.
Created by three work-at-home moms, Tansy Handmade Dolls was highlighted by Toward the Stars, an online marketplace that promotes girl empowerment, for their trailblazing Women of History dolls.
And these moms don’t just design dolls for little girls. “We also support boys who play with dolls, and we want to help normalize this in our society.” On their site you’ll find handmade, all-natural toys for every child. Boy dolls, girl dolls, fairies, elves, and even cupcakes and felted animal friends. You can also order special custom dolls from them where you can choose the skin, eye, and hair color to make a special friend for your little one that is truly unique.
Tansy Handmade Dolls is a heart-centered company that cares about giving back. “The curly hair we use on our dolls comes from Be Sweet Yarn, a company that creates jobs in South Africa to give artisans the confidence and the means to support themselves and their families.”
