This doll follows the Waldorf theory in that with its minimal expression, a child has the possibility to transfer their true feelings and/or mood on to the doll. The greatest benefit of that is, children grow more in tune with their state of mind and are able to expand their creative thinking in such an organic way.
Käthe Kruse has been designing and manufacturing toys and dolls for over 100 years. One of their unique selling points is that their products are handcrafted and produced individually. Handcrafted products cannot be mass-produced, which I greatly favour and advocate.
