  • Wonderful soother for children...

    . . . . .

    As a Child Therapist, these dolls are wonderful for children who have anxiety, difficulty sleeping....actually anything that bothers them in their waking or sleeping hours. These are something that I have been providing to my children for years....and they just love them. They name them and carry them to bed, school - anyplace at all
