Sweet Baby – Lee Middleton Doll
The Lee Middleton Newborn Nursery™ babies look and feel just like real babies. Their features are so lifelike, from their extremely realistic facial expressions, down to the wrinkles and creases in their tiny hands and feet. Their head, hands and feet are made of vinyl that is soft to the touch, and has the true warm coloring of a baby’s skin. The newborns have soft, cloth bodies, that are weighted in just the right places, so they feel as real as they look. Even their heads are weighted, requiring gentle support, just like a real newborn baby.
These high quality dolls are the perfect gift for those in the moderate to late stages of dementia, guaranteed to fulfill our instinctive need to care, to love and to be loved. Each doll measures approximately 48 – 50cm in length and weighs approximately 1.8kg.
To clean, wipe gently with a soft cloth dampened with mild soapy water.
