The Kate Finn Rag Doll Difference
The rag dolls for sale at Kate Finn are heirloom products primarily made to be played with. So safe, soft and cuddly with their perfectly sewn dresses, petticoats and pinafores in an amazing variety of truly lovely retro, modern and traditional fabrics. Their beauty enhances the décor of any child’s nursery. These items are an ideal alternative to our soft baby toys or the more delicate porcelain collectibles.
Designed to be treasured and collected some of these beautiful items have also been designed for learning and playing. An example is Mary Anne with her dual face (one side asleep, one side awake). We all know how little ones love putting their toys to bed. Mary Anne has been designed specifically with this in mind, her clothing is removable and she has her nightgown in her shoulder bag.
First Birthday Rag Dolls are another of Kate Finn’s iconic designs. A babies First Birthday is a very special event for both family and friends, to commemorate the special day Kate Finn has a variety of rag dolls with “First Birthday”embroidered on their pinafore or apron.
The majority of designs are made in limited quantities which makes them a very unique gift and extremely collectible. Their faces are either hand stitched or have detailed embroidery. The clothing on most dolls and gollies is removable so that they can be washed. In many cases they’re kept into adulthood; many children form an emotional attachment to their rag dolls which often remains throughout their lives.
Kate Finn Rag Dolls Get Animated!
Kate Finn is now creating short animated stories about “The Finnies” featuring Kate Finn Rag Dolls and Baby Toys. These short stories have been beautifully crafted to keep little ones enchanted by the gorgeous graphics and sweet characters. Episodes are available to download from Kate Finn’s Vimeo Channel so you can keep little ones entertained for hours!
Caring for Your New Items
As the highest quality dolls available in Australia, their clothing is removable and washable. In the case of that occasional childhood accident, even the soft body can be carefully laundered. Use cold or lukewarm water only and dry in the shade to prevent fading. Although you are able to wash your dolls, keep in mind that regular washing will lead to fading and they will no longer look brand new. Do not tumble dry your clothing or the bodies as they may shrink and the wool hair will matt.
