Classic Lea is just asking to be cuddled. She is 46cm (18 inches tall) and has been made by Ciao Bimba with a huge amount of love and care. Their dolls are made using the highest quality materials available in Europe and I hope I can do her justice because I think the incredible quality of the Ciao Bimba dolls won't be fully appreciated until held in the hands.
Ciao Bimba dolls are made from skin tone interlock filled very carefully with wool to ensure that the shaping of the limbs, head and body are correct. As result the parts are quite firmly filled whilst maintaining a little bit of cuddliness. Stitching is also used to shape the limbs, and a tiny ball of wool is used to make the nose. Their arms and legs are sewn so that they are floppy allowing the dolls to be seated. The dolls even have a cute bottom and belly button.
Classic Lea has a blonde wig made from mohair boucle wool which has is tied into plaits with a fringe. The plaits are tied with a gingham ribbon which is stitched in place and it is best to leave the hairstyle as it is. Her embroidered eyes are bright blue, her full cheeks are painted lightly pink and she has a slightly smiling embroidered pink mouth.
Lea is wearing a pinafore with tie shoulders made from a classic Liberty print in Tana Lawn with a frill around the hem and pink ric rac braid across the bodice on the front and back. Under this she is wearing a white jersey T shirt with poppers at the back to fasten and a pair of pink bloomers. On her feet she is wearing co-ordinated turquoise lace up boots with Tana Lawn lining. She comes with her own little toy, a butterfly with Tana Lawn wings and a sculpted pink velour body. I love the little waldorf face with painted eyes, blushing cheeks and tiny mouth. It's divine!
Lea arrives in a very pretty presentation box, the insert of which could be used as a bed.

This doll can hand washed in luke warm water using woolite. It is best to tie up any hair to prevent tangling. Air dry the doll in a warm place with the hair in the desired style. The dolls clothes can also be handwashed. They should be dried flat and not tumble dried, smoothing out creases whilst damp. A cool iron can be used if required.
