Baby Petey – Someone to Love Baby Doll
Dolls have a remarkable effect on women and men in the moderate to late stages of dementia.

Giving someone a "baby" doll brings them back to that safe and secure time in their life and these high quality dolls are guaranteed to fulfill that instinctive need to care, to love and to be loved.
The Someone to Love Baby dolls are very special, bringing pleasure to anyone who holds them. Their beautiful faces and cuddly bodies can’t help but make you smile, making these dolls the perfect gift. They weigh 1.4kg and are about 43cm long.
