Cuddle + Kind Penelope Flamingo

July 31, 2019



(Cuddle + Kind $60-$80)


Once again, we applaud the charming dolls handcrafted by talented women in Peru, who make their living with these lovable creations. This year’s beauties are once again winning choices for gift giving. It will be hard to choose just one favorite; each is special in its own way. Perhaps the standout is a pink ballerina Penelope, a 20” tall knitted flamingo with a floral crown above her tiny black eyes, pink delicately rouged cheeks, and pronounced black and white beak! Her textured wings are of feathery pink yarn and her ballet slippers are not removable.


Also consider these two charmers, Lucas and Lola Llama are the color of flax and have textured yard on the heads and ears. Their smiling faces are framed by blush pink cheeks, smiling mouths below a heart shaped nose and button shaped eyes, all embroidered. Like their heads they have ruffs of yarn around their arms and legs and yarn neckware…all permanently in place. That's Lola on the left and Lucas on the right.




As always, with the purchase of each doll, Cuddle + Kind donates ten meals for children all over the world. We have been writing about this company since its inception in 2015; last year they donated over 4 million meals in Kenya, Haiti, Canada, Peru and the USA. These dolls are $80 in the 20 inch size or $60 in 13 inches size.
