Since 1995, Rubens Barn® ("Barn" means "children" in Swedish) has been creating beautiful dolls with a level of charisma, innocence, and heart, unlike any dolls on the market today. Designed in Sweden, each lovable soft-sculpted doll has a unique personality. All have the signature sparkly embroidered eyes, sweet pixie face, and weighted bottoms that make them feel much like a real baby when held. Their bodies are made from the softest fleece so that every hug is warm and comforting.
Comments about Product: My 6-year old got White Rose for Christmas and has slept with her every night since. It's the perfect size to tuck into her backpack and take anywhere. And the first item on her 7-year-old birthday list was Sweet Pea. We ended up stitching Sweet Pea's headband onto her head to avoid frantic midnight searches for it. Now the 9-year-old sister is wishing for Mushroom...
Comments about Product: These dolls are very cute, my daughters both love them. However, after an accident by our kitten, I put the strawberry doll into the washing machine. When he came out, his fluffy hair was shrunken and matted to his head, my daughter was very upset. Even when dry, his hair stayed the same, it is no longer fluffy. Lesson learned.
Comments about Product: I ordered one of the Rubens Barn Baby dolls for my 3yr old daughter and she was so lovely I had to get two Linne dolls for my older sons. They had noticed these in the catalog and were really interested because of the cute costumes. At 7 & 10 they aren't really into dolls, but these had something magical about them that they really liked. We got the pinecone and moss and they are so adorable. Incredibly soft and a nice small size. The clothes easily go on & off too, so they can be dressed in "normal" clothes for traditional play too. The quality is really fantastic & being machine washable is a huge plus. Definitely will buy more.
Comments about Product: I accidentally got the "blueberry" doll instead of the "bluebird" (my error not magic cabin's). But it is so precious I have decided to keep it and order another one! The hair on there dolls are so cute! I am impressed by how well they are made . They are a refreshing change from what you might find in the run of the mill toy store.
Comments about Product: I purchased two Rubens Barn Linne dolls for my daughter and niece. They were much smaller than I expected, and my daughter is almost four. So, I'm giving the doll I purchased for her, to another niece, who is 14 mos. The second doll was already going to a 2 year old niece, so it's perfect for her little hands. I loved the soft, cuddly feel of the dolls so much, I ended up purchasing the Rubens Barn Kid Doll for my daughter (Linnea). I can't wait to see her reaction! Most dolls end up with their clothes off, and she carries them around this way, everywhere. So, I wasn't going to spend much on a baby doll. When the first doll was too small, I ordered a Manhattan Toy Stella doll for her, which was bigger, but less expensive. However, when Stella arrived, her softness was nothing compared to the little Rubens Barn babies! I sent Stella back, and ordered the Rubens Barn Kid doll, instead. These dolls are SO sweet and expressive, with their sparkling eyes, soft hair, and adorable belly buttons, it won't matter if it ends up without its clothes...it will still be beautiful! My daughter carries around a Cabbage Patch doll, but won't sleep with it, because of its hard head. I feel sure she'll love sleeping with this soft, cuddly, handmade sweetie!
Comments about Product: My three year old daughter fell in love with these dolls the second she saw them in the catalog. I ordered a few of them, and as soon as they arrived, I knew we would need to order more! These dolls are so charming, cuddly, and very well constructed! They're the perfect size for little ones, substantial enough for traditional doll play, but small enough for young kids to manage. My daughter and I wouldn't mind collecting all of them!
Comments about Product: These are adorable dolls! I'm glad I ordered as soon as I saw them in the catalog. I bought Moss & Pinecone and am delighted with the craftsmanship and design creativity. They are wonderful toys with their removable hats and clothes, and small enough for some large dollhouses. They remind me a little of hobbits, only much cuter. Wait till you see them without the hats, their hair is really wild. They would be a good doll for a small child who isn't into fashion dolls but can enjoy a doll who comes with changeable clothes (buy several and swap clothes, or make some new ones). These dolls grow on you as soon as you let them out of the box. Thank you Magic Cabin.
