Manny the mandrake baby. 7.5 inch Natural fibers doll
***By purchasing this doll you agree to our policies***
How did we come across this baby you may ask? Well, my little boy found some strange seeds on the ground near the park. When we got home he wanted to plant them because he wanted a tree for himself. So we planted them and after a couple of weeks a flower grew. When I went to pick the flower, the whole plant, including the roots, came out. And there was Manny. I’m not sure what he is, what he does or where he’s from. He can’t tell us either because he doesn’t talk. He’s a very fuzzy baby and cries every time he’s pulled out of his flower pot. I made him a flower pacifier to stop the crying and it has seemed to work so far. He also made a friend. His name is Grub and he’s a tiny snail that seems to be taking care of Manny at all times. If you have more information about these kind of babies, please let me know. We are still trying to figure him out.
Baby Manny is a 7.5 inch natural fibers baby boy doll with his flower and only 6 inches if you don’t count the flower. His skin is DWE in Mocha color. His green and brown blushing is made with colored pencils to give the appearance of dirt from coming out of the ground. His limbs and torso are firmly filled with clean wool. His head is floppy. His legs and arms are floppy on the shoulders and thighs. Arms are sewn directly to the torso three times for extra strength. Legs and torso are one piece. His face is firmly needle felted. Baby Manny’s hair is a wild big loop mohair wig cap hand dyed to green with a crocheted flower with stem and leaves. The wig cap has been sewn to his head. This hair cannot be brushed. The little roots coming out of his body are made with mercerized cotton thread. He has a cute little tushie.
Even though baby Manny is made pretty sturdy, he needs to be played with gently. He’s an art doll intended for gentle play by an adult collector or an older child 7 and up. He’s a pretty fuzzy baby and will almost always rather be inside his pot.
**Spot cleaning only. Though he rather be covered in dirt.
Baby Manny will go home with his hand crocheted flower pacifier, flower pot that can be hung, soil blanket, and his friend and care taker Grub, the snail. All items are hand made by me.
Please be advised that colors may vary slightly from what you see due to the difference in monitor calibration.
Baby Manny was made in a smoke free, pet friendly home.
