Cuddle+Kind Koalas and Kittens
(Cuddle and Kind $62 and up)
We look forward to the arrival of Cuddle +Kind dolls every season—and once again, they do not disappoint. This season’s huggables feature 13” Claire the Koala a darling armful in soft grey knit with short stringy-but-secure accents on her ears. She has pink cheeks that match her romper with its lacy crocheted gathered top. Her long legs and arms make her easy to grab. A larger 20” version ($82). Or, if you prefer a boy Koala, Quinn with his suspendered shorts is. Quinn is sold out at the moment, but due back in stock very soon. Also new this season, some irresistible Kittens: Dylan and Daisy, available in both sizes. Like other Cuddle and Kind dolls, Claire is handmade by artisans in Peru, who are paid fair sustainable trade wages and the company donates 10 meals to children in North America and around the world with every doll purchased. In other words, your gift is not just to the lucky child who will enjoy cuddling this beautiful doll—it’s a gift of kindness that goes an extra step.
