” When you purchase a KuKu Doll, you help a Family”
Dolls are something that Mummy and the Cuties are never bored of. We are always on the hunt for unique Dolls that are Super cute and baby friendly. So, when I was contacted by Dolly-Mamas about reviewing one of their KuKu Dolls I was more excited and couldn’t wait to see whats so special about them.
They are very special because in this age of machinery and mass production Dolly-Mamas are bringing you handcrafted works of art with their own sense of individuality.
They are multicultural, knitted or crocheted, felted dolls that are available as kits, patterns and finished dolls. Each KuKu Doll has its own name and personality and when you make one, you put a little touch of yourself in it as well. They are guaranteed to put a smile on the face of whoever receives them!
I opted to review Rose Kuku Doll. Rose has blond hair and blue eyes. Made with 100% new wool and 100% new polyester stuffing, she is about 8” just to fit in the little hands. Gorgeous with her Blue and Pink outfit and Purple leggings, she is soft and cuddly. She does not look like the usual dolls and definitely unique. You can also purchase the KuKu Doll Patterns and the Kits from Dolly-Mamas. You can also download the pattern online after purchasing them.
What makes you feel proud about purchasing a KuKu Doll:
Dolly-Mamas are working closely with Connect Africa. Dr. Lynn Auerbach (Connect Africa project founder and a knitter herself) learnt to knit KuKu Dolls and she went back to her project in Uganda and taught many villagers to knit the dolls. The Dolly-Mamas LLC provides the yarn and purchases the finished dolls from the connect-Africa project, helping provide the knitters with an ongoing source of income. The very good news is that much of the money earned from knitting is being used to pay school tuitions!
The Dolly-Mamas LLC sponsors the PIP (Partners in Possibilities) Program. Working with non-profit organizations, Dolly Mamas provide a special line of kits, patterns and finished dolls (made by the Uganda knitters) that can be made and sold to support their efforts.
