Caring for Your Natural Soft Doll: Maintenance Tips for Long-Lasting Companionship

Your Little Lenni doll is more than just a toy; it’s a cherished companion that brings joy and comfort to your child’s life. Crafted with love and precision, our dolls are designed to stand the test of time. In this blog post, we’ll share practical maintenance tips to ensure your all-natural soft doll remains a beloved member of your family for years to come.

Handling with care

Each Little Lenni doll is a unique creation, meticulously crafted from an original pattern. Their faces are lovingly hand-embroi-dered, adding character and personality to every doll. To preserve the beauty and quality of your doll, handle it with care and avoid pulling the threads.

Dressing and undressing

Our dolls are designed for gentle play and cuddles, but they’re not meant for rough handling. When dressing and undressing your doll, be mindful of the delicate details. Clothes can be gently removed from the feet, thanks to elastic, satin ribbons, or larger collar openings for added convenience. While there may be charming bows on the doll’s head, rest assured that they are securely sewn on and not intended for removal.

Cleaning your doll

To keep your doll looking its best, we recommend gently cleaning it with a damp cloth. While our dolls are durable, their hand-embroidered faces are delicate, so it’s best to avoid machine washing. However, doll clothes can be hand-washed or placed in the washing machine on a gentle cycle.

Hand-washing the doll’s body

If your doll’s body requires a more thorough cleaning, here’s a step-by-step guide:

  • Fill a basin or sink with cold water.
  • Add a mild detergent, such as baby shampoo.
  • Allow the doll’s body (part) to soak for a few minutes.
  • Gently rub the fabric to remove dirt or stains.
  • Rinse thoroughly with clean water.
  • Avoid wetting or soaking the head and hair, as it may damage delicate features.
  • Lay the doll flat on a dry towel to air dry naturally.
  • Ensure the doll is fully dry before storing it.

Fabric care

It’s important to note that all fabrics used for crafting our dolls and their clothes are pre-washed with hypoallergenic enzymes detergent. This ensures that the materials are clean, safe, and ready for your child’s gentle play and companionship.

By following these maintenance tips, you can help preserve the beauty and quality of your Little Lenni natural soft doll. These dolls are not just decorative; they are treasured friends meant to be loved, cuddled, played with, and cherished for a lifetime. Thank you for choosing Little Lenni, where care and craftsmanship come together to create lasting companionship.
