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.
