Comments about Product: My 5 year old daughter received this for Christmas 2015. She really loves this doll- it is cuddly, and soft. The facial expression is adorable and within the past 2 days, it has followed her everywhere. However, the doll has already required a repair to a seam. Luckily, I sew as a hobby and I was able to repair the seam quickly and invisibly. However, I am concerned that a seam has already popped after only 2 days of play. My daughter hasn't even been playing with the doll "hard". I would expect that this type of repair after months of heavy use. I still would recommend this product, but with reservations.
Comments about Product: These dolls are lovely! They are so soft and cuddly and weighted just right to feel so nice in your arms. My daughter got one last Christmas and I came back for two more this year for my nieces. My daughter has loved hers up everyday of the last year. It has gone everywhere with us. I have washed it once in the washing machine and it came out just fine. The craftsmanship is top notch. Very pleased with these dolls.
Comments about Product: My five year old son has two of these doll, Max and Nora, and he just adores both of them. He got one a few years ago, and recently bought Nora with birthday money. They are such treasured little dolls. Fairly large, have a good amount of weight, and are just adorable. My 8 year old son now wants his own Rubens Barn doll. My three boys also have the Rubens Barn Linne dolls and they are all equally treasured...especially by my 3 year old son. You cannot go wrong with these sweet dolls!
Comments about Product: Cute and adorable - my baby and I love it. In particular I love that it is completely made of fabric and anatomically correct (we've spent quite some time pointing out the doll's belly button, my bay's belly button and mine)
Comments about Product: This really is the best doll ever! My five year old daughter is absolutely in love with Eric. She does not want to be separated from him even for a minute, so now we have to get the doll carrier to make sure she doesn't drop him or lose him when she goes outside. The doll is very sweet, real baby size, but not heavy, the quality is wonderful, and the details are amazing. I wish we hadn't spent so much money on other dolls before finding this one.
Comments about Product: What We Love About The Rubens Barn Molly Doll: # It is a handmade, high quality doll # It is soft and cuddly # It is machine washable # The clothing is easy to take off and put on # It looks just like our baby girl # She is very tall at 17 1/2 inches # The Rubens Barn Baby Doll is recommended for all agesWe received the Rubens Barn Molly Doll for review for our family blog, and oh boy did we love it. It is almost as tall as our baby girl, and we've already had it in the washing machine with no problems. We washed it on the handwash cycle, and it came out good as new after a little spit up incident.
Comments about Product: "Molly" is my 2 1/2-year-old daughter's new best friend. She's never attached to a blanket or anything so I had high hopes for this doll, and she loves it! Molly is a beautifully crafted doll - I love her soft hair, and she's the perfect size and weight for a toddler to hold. As a reviewer said below, yes the dolls are "born in Sweden" but "made in China," but just because they're made in China doesn't mean their using bad labor practices. I researched it on the Rubens's Barn website and found this page that shows how the dolls are made: http://www.rubensbarn.com/en/about-us/production/Overall very happy with this purchase and hope my daughter loves it for years to come!
Comments about Product: I will disclose that we returned this doll before our daughter ever laid eyes on it, so take my review for what it's worth: an adult's opinion of a child's doll. We bought our 2.5 year-old the Erik doll, thinking he resembled her older brother, who is strawberry blond with big blue eyes, but Erik turned out to be more blond than strawberry. No big deal. The doll felt good to hold (solid and sturdy but soft). The doll appeared to be well-made, but I can't vouch for its longevity. I was pleasantly surprised to find little boy bits under his diaper - I mean, why not? I think it makes sense to not make the human body something to deny or be ashamed of. So, with all this good stuff, you're probably wondering why I returned it. First, my husband found him creepy. I thought he was endearing, but I could see his point. Second, the seam down the front of the face is weird. Third, he's heavy and a bit of a bulk for a wee one to carry about. And finally, and I hate to admit this, I don't like that he's made in China. I know it's ridiculous, but "designed in Sweden" makes it worse. I don't like when companies act under some pretense that their products are superior just because they were designed elsewhere - aren't most products designed elsewhere, and then the cheap labor is taken advantage of? It almost makes me feel like they are trying to pull a fast one by saying "designed in USA/Sweden/Australia. Give it up! We ended up buying a much cheaper cuddle doll made with fair labor in India. I'm not judging all made in China merchandise as being inferior or intrinsically bad, but in this case, it irked me.
Comments about Product: These dolls are absolutely adorable, they have a magic quality in their expressions. They are also anatomically correct! Ive always wanted to find a cute doll that included the important bits! I think this attribute may help chase away those giggles sprinkled with a bit o shame. Anyhoo, I do wish they were a little smaller so to fit better in the arms at the age of potty training, seriously considering exchanging for the smaller dolls, the bottles and binkis are making that a tough decision!
