Premmie Dolls are custom made to your baby's birth measurements, for a lasting momento of your baby's tiny size. The face has a shaped nose and embroidered features which is unique to our dolls.
Dolls can be made to baby's Actual Weight for additional charge - more info below.
To order fill in the Customisation Form, then select your doll size and weight (Feels Right or Actual) from the menu.
Warning: Last items in stock!
Current wait time to complete your doll: approx 8 weeks * We are now CLOSED for doll orders required by Christmas*
Your doll will be made as quickly as possible, but dolls ordered now may not be completed until early January.
Our keepsake dolls are made to be as realistic as possible and we use the highest quality materials - a beautifully soft 100% Cotton fabric and finished with solid metal joints to ensure it is long lasting. The body is fully lined with a lightweight fleece and stuffed using a combination of plastic pellets, polyester fibre fill and metal weights for accurately weighted dolls.
All our premmie dolls come with:
A unique shaped nose and embroidered face, with Dark Blue or Brown Eye Colour, or Asleep (closed eyes).
Hat in Blue, Pink or White.
Cloth Nappy, custom made to size.
Individual Poseable Fingers/Mitts. In the smallest dolls (those under approx 400 grams or 22 weeks gestation) fingers can't be made, in which case the baby will have mitten fingers with thumbs.
Option of bent legs or slightly bent. The dolls in our photos have the slightly bent option.
Fabric Skin Colours are Fair, Beige or Light Brown (see photo for detail).
Your Premmie Doll can be made to the "Feels Right" or "Actual" weight. There is an additional charge for Actual Weight dolls due to the extra time and materials needed. Please read the following carefully:
"Feels Right" weight is approx 1/2 to 2/3 of your baby's actual weight. When you pick it up it feels the correct weight for the size. This is the best option for dolls that are a general representation of a baby's size, and for ante-natal training or display purposes.
"Actual" weight dolls will be made to your baby's birth weight, in most cases these dolls feel heavier than they look. The best way to describe this is it's the same as picking up a sleeping child, they feel much heavier than they do when awake. For a baby that was stillborn or passed away after birth the actual weight will be a more accurate representation.
Standard sizes are from 20 weeks up to 36 weeks gestation - we can certainly make them in smaller or larger sizes, please contact us for pricing.
If you have any other special requirements for your doll please include it in the customisation form, or contact us prior to ordering.
Our dolls will be made as close as possible to your specifications, but as this is a hand-made product there may be a slight variation in the finished body length. For Actual weight dolls the weight may differ by a couple of grams depending on the scales used, we weigh them on our digital scales throughout the weighting process.
Care: Surface spot-clean only. Do not immerse in water, these dolls contain metal parts which may rust.
Caution: These replica premmie dolls are NOT A TOY. They are hand made, and contain small parts which pose a choking hazard to young children - please do not leave children unsupervised with the doll.
International orders by prior arrangement only, as we need to calculate an accurate shipping cost. As an example, postage and handling to Australia via tracked courier varies from $35-65 (NZD) depending on the weight of the doll.
