Children can learn and live the universal call to holiness playing with a saint doll!

Begin by playing with Therese as she was as a child. The young Therese Martin wears a cream top and rose bud skirt with pink ric-rac trim. Her brown hair is in pigtails. Celebrate her vocation to the Carmelite Order by dressing her in a flowing habit. Sr. Therese of the Child Jesus wears a brown habit with scapular, long black veil, and full cream cape. Around her waist she wears a wooden cross and carries a bouquet of roses, in traditional reference to the “shower of roses” promised by the Little Flower.

Approximately 16” tall, this doll is handmade with cotton and cotton blend fabrics, yarn for the hair, and hypo-allergenic polyester filling. She is made (with love and prayer) in my pet-free, smoke-free home.

She is meant to be played with! Use play time with Therese to teach about the life of a saint, a life of virtue, the beauty of vocations, the Catholic Faith, and the spirituality of the Little Way. Even children are called to sanctity... playing with saint dolls is educational and edifying; it is play with an eternal purpose!

Saint Therese of Lisieux (1873-1897), pray for us! Inspire our children to love and serve God as you did, in childlike simplicity!

A few notes: Young Therese’s rose bud skirt is attached, it is not removable. Her habit and veil fasten with snaps. Her cape has a hook closure. The cross around her waist is on a necklace-size cord and the roses are snipped from an artificial arrangement and therefore have wire under the plastic coating. If these are child safety concerns for you, you are responsible for removing the items in question. Also note, this Therese doll is not a collector’s item and does not wear an official copy of an actual Carmelite habit as some nun dolls do. She is meant to be loved and played with and so her habit is simply in the spirit of Therese and the Carmelites. It has been designed for ease of use (for instance, it’s pretty difficult to put a wimple on a doll with no chin!)

Each doll is slightly unique, but will very closely resemble the doll in these photos.
