I hope that we’ve proven time and again that a child’s favorite doll may not be the one with the perfect skin and the perfect nose and the perfect wardrobe and the $100 price tag. In fact the Aminals Organic Momey doll is stealing hearts these days for far far less.
This “Momey” is a squishy plush mommy doll whose look (and evidently name) is based on children’s drawings. Even though my kids never see me trotting around with red nails and a minidress, they knew this was “me” instantly.
For any doll that I know they’ll keep close, I am comforted knowing that the fair-trade Aminals are made from 100% organic cotton and natural veggie dyes with unbleached and unprocessed organic cotton stuffing, and it feels as comfy as a favorite old tee-shirt. Of course I was a bit distressed to hear that Momey is compostable too. Although I suppose there comes a time when kids grow up and no longer need their Momey close at hand. Hold me. -Christina
Congratulations to Pam W., and Cindi H., lucky winners of an Aminals doll!
