Mini Mamas magnetic breastfeeding dolls

Little Miss, my 2-year-old daughter, played with a Mini Mama doll yesterday at a friend’s house.

Mini Mamas are plush 12″ mother dolls with a baby held in a sling. The baby latches to her mother’s breast via under-skin magnets. If any dads question a daughter’s need for such a doll, let me tell you, I have personally nursed almost all of Little Miss’ stuffed animals.

Mini Mamas are the work of two sisters in Oregon who sell their creations through their web site, Where’s Waldorf? They are so backlogged with orders that this month they have begun, on key products, only accepting orders during the first week of each month.

Other cool items include wool Kinder Garden dolls (check out Banana Man, he comes out of his peel!) and Pregnant Mama Dolls which are, well, just so shapely. Dads, don’t feel left out. Whole families can be recreated in doll form. It’s all on display in the custom doll gallery.

    Love these dolls for promoting natural play, and a ‘case for make-believe.’ Never been one for the “realism” of the all too plastic wetting, crying, peeing, burping bit which usurps a child’s imagination.
