The Bearded Fellas story...

As a painter, it became difficult to give the quality of time to my work that I was used to once babies came on the scene. But the desire to make art is not something easily suppressed. After dabbling in a few different mediums, fabric became the one that felt most like home. It also became a medium that I could readily share with my son and our friends' children.

Bearded Fellas officially started in 2010 with the thought of dolls for boys: "Shouldn't a boy be encouraged to practice nurturing just as much as any girl? What if they were dolls that looked like the guys in my kid's life?" My fella is no GI Joe or Ken doll, but he is a fabulous guy with a beard. As more little people were added to our crew, I began watching what they were interested in and how they played. Making Fellas and Friends to meet them where they were at during various stages became an exciting and inspirational process.

Over the last few years, the material choices have been important. When Bearded Fellas started, it was with the idea of giving purpose back to old garments. Now, each doll is created with intentional materials and the idea of them maintaining purpose through years of play/ enjoyment.

Each doll is inspired in some way by those I care about most. It is therefore a great honor to be able to share what goes on in the studio.

Thanks so much for following along and helping us share what we love!

Additional policies and FAQs

1. Can I get accessories for my Bearded Fella or Lady Friend?
Absolutely– for a small additional charge, we are happy to super customize your doll. Some past orders have included hoodies, vests, jewelry, embroidered design, etc.

2. Are the dolls safe for children?
The original Bearded Fella has not been officially tested for children's choking hazard standards. These dolls were originally designed to be children's toys. We have seen them thoroughly loved and dragged around by our own children and their friends.

The Bearded Minis were designed with the tiniest of people in mind. They are great to gnaw on. The newer design is made with a wool and cotton exterior, so baby goo will not be as harmful to your Fella's hair doo.

Our Heirloom Bearded Fellas and Lady Friends have button arm connectors. For this reason, they are recommended for ages 3 and up. But really, at the end of the day, parents know their own kids best.
