When my granddaughter turned two last April, I gave her a Baby Stella Doll. As soon as she took Baby Stella out of the gift bag, her heart melted and she hugged the doll closely. Baby Stella quickly won her heart. Baby Stella won my heart, too.
Baby Stella, made by Manhattan Toy, is a soft cuddly doll with lifelike fingers and toes and a plump belly with a perfect belly button in the middle. She has a tuft of fleece hair on the top of her head. Baby Stella has her own pacifier that attaches to her lips by magnet. Her diaper goes on and comes off easily with its velcro attachments. Baby Stella's clothes attach with velcro as well, so are easy for even a toddler to take on and off for dress up fun.
Baby Stella comes with peach or beige skin (which are the colors Manhattan Toy uses for light or dark complexion). There is a boy Baby Stella doll, too, (call him Baby Stephen?) and two Baby Stella toddlers -- one with blond hair, one with black hair. You can choose a Baby Stella doll that looks most like your child. She or he will find reassurance and love to hold a soft and cuddly Baby Stella doll close, whether in bed or while playing during the day.
Baby Stella by Manhattan Toy was given the Oppenheim toy portfolio gold seal award 2006 and was recognized by the Canadian Toy Testing award in 2007.
This article will introduce you to the Baby Stella Doll and show you some of the accessories available with this doll. These dolls will last a young child for years of play. Baby Stella dolls are just the right gift for a young child in the first wonderful few years of life and will appeal to any child who still loves to play with dolls.
The poster I've included as an illustration is one of those classic Norman Rockwell magazine covers that accurately capture a tender moment in a child's life. The stress of going to the doctor can be eased by using a doll as a helper. If you are interested in purchasing the poster -- or any of the dolls and accessories -- you can do so by clicking on the pictures.
