Responsive to the Mothering Instinct
More than 100 years ago a young mother of seven asked her husband to find their daughter a doll to mother. After two weeks he came home dismayed that all the dolls were stiff, cold and made of porcelain. He encouraged his wife to make a doll for their daughter that would be soft and pliable, and more responsive to their daughter's mothering instinct.
Continuing the Legacy Since 1905
So in 1905, Kathe Kruse began to make the kind of toys she wanted for her children. Today, over 100 years later, the Kathe Kruse Company's award-winning dolls continue that legacy of simple design and high-quality, handmade craftsmanship.
Smitten by the Nicki Babies
While the Käthe Kruse company makes many lovely dolls, we were smitten with their tiny Nicki Babies. Handmade Nicki Babies, in ultra soft velour sleepers and colorful pointed caps, are super cuddly. Exceptionally lightweight, they are easy for even tiny babies to clasp and cuddle. Teething babies will find its cheery hat irresistibly soothing.
Floppy Beanbag Bodies
Petite enough to fit easily into a diaper bag, purse or pocket Nicki Babies love to travel. And when they tumble from the stroller, you'll be delighted to know that Nicki Babies are sturdy enough to handle multiple washings. Filled with plastic pellets, their floppy beanbag bodies are fun for parents and siblings to pose in all sorts of amusing positions.
Handcrafted in Germany
Nicki Babies are not just for girls; your sons will enjoy having a human companion among his collection of stuffed dragons and jeeps. Handcrafted in Germany, Nicki Baby's stockinette face is hand-painted. Fully washable Nicki Babies are 8 inches from head to toe, 10.5 inches including the attached cap.
