Bear Woodland collection
This doll is born from a desire to have a basket full of dolls for little ones that come home. What a great treasure to have so much dolls to put clothes on or just to play with and to imagine stories, or also to take a nap with! This doll is inspired by the woodland: The Bear is to me the king of the woodland’s world!! With a soft pink dress and a knitted collar add the girly touch to the Bear, and adding a bow not is just so cute, this doll is such fun to play with! Or just to keep it in your room.
