This little "bulb baby" root child was inspired by the characters in The Story of the Root Children by Sibylle von Olfers. The root child would make a joyful addition to a spring nature table or a story of your own making. Then again, the root child would be happy simply to inspire you from a corner of your desk.

Photo #3 shows the root child with two other friends, and photo #4 shows the root children with a forget-me-not lady (featured in separate listings). The root children are made of reddish-brown wool-rayon felt with green cotton embroidery thread tassels representing shoots. They stand approximately 5.3 cm tall (a little over 2 inches), and are made of wool, a wool-rayon blend, and cotton. Their faces are embroidered simply in the Waldorf tradition to encourage open creativity.

This root child appropriate for display and gentle play. The doll should be kept out of reach from pets and children who still put toys in their mouths (small parts may be a choking hazard). The bases of the dolls are signed in thread with an “A.”

I care about each doll I sew, and hope you will find a doll in the shop that you feel is yours.
