I think it’s so sweet of you to do this giveaway! I’d love to win and “pay it forward,” and give this beautiful doll to a little girl I know, who would absolutely adore this doll and who’s parent’s couldn’t afford a Bamboletta. My daughter already has one, and as much as I love your dolls and would love to have more, It would be so much more special to give her away to a little girl who would love to have this little friend. Thank you for doing such a lovely giveaway.

Maura - December 12, 2009 - 10:23 pm

Anne-Odile - December 13, 2009 - 1:19 am

This doll is beautiful, just like all the other ones! My 20mo daughter would just be extatic to welcome her in our home. She doesn’t have one yet, but her eyes light up and she has this big smile whenever she sees me checking them out on the computer screen… I don’t know what it is, but she really connects with them somehow.

Emily M. - December 13, 2009 - 1:21 am

Congrats on whoever wins her, your a lucky lucky person. God bless you all and your family have perfect holidays!

Misha'sMama~ - December 13, 2009 - 1:46 am

I was just daydreaming about being the “chosen“ one (lol) and being able to present this beauty for my girl on Christmas but then I imagined the guilt I would feel knowing all the little girls and boys who missed out. I truly believe her red thread will bring her home to where she belongs and is needed πŸ™‚

Amy - December 13, 2009 - 1:52 am

Serephina is so beautiful! My daughter would absolutely love her! She’s all about purple right now. Thank you for doing the giveaway. Happy holidays and all the best to you and your family in the new year!!

Lorinna - December 13, 2009 - 1:55 am

Oh Christina! What an amazing thing to do! SO SWEET, YOU and THE DOLL! SOMEONE VERY LUCKY is going to BE OH SO VERY VERY HAPPY! Your dolls are amazing and are genuine works of art. It must feel great to know you’re filling our world with love, one little precious girl (or boy) at a time! What a mark you’re leaving on these little girls (and boys) HEARTS!

Thank you KINDLY for making our world more beautiful, soft and kind with your creations. These will be our mothers (and fathers) of tomorrow. The more they can love their bambolettas, the more gentle and kind our world will become. It is exactly that nurture we need instilled deeply into the adults of tomorrow.

Mama’s love up your children, help them nurture and care for these dolls. The future of our world will depend on it!

Becky M. - December 13, 2009 - 1:55 am

I don’t usually win things, but a girl can dream, right? I follow you on Facebook and I think your work is amazing!! Happy Holidays to you & your family!! πŸ˜‰

Sarah Wong - December 13, 2009 - 3:03 am

What a cutie! She reminds me of me with pigtails when I was little. What a sweet dolly for a lucky little girl.

Rachelle - December 13, 2009 - 3:07 am

Love her…such a sweet look. You work so hard on your dolls. I made my first baby doll the other day and I now have a new found appreciation for all the time you put into each one. Beautiful! Happy Holidays to you and your boys!!!!

Pia - December 13, 2009 - 3:18 am

I just love your dolls!!!! Mine are never so beautiful as yours are. I really really hope to win this one. Happy holidays!

Wendy - December 13, 2009 - 4:01 am

What a little blessing this sweet little one will be! Thank you for your generosity! She is just darling!!! Many blessings
this Chrismas for you and your family!!! Good luck to all the mamas entering! Can’t wait to see where she will call home!

Alice S - December 13, 2009 - 4:22 am

Wow! I’m so excited about your generosity. I adore Serephina’s dark hair and purple highlights. Merry Christmas to your family!

Shelley - December 13, 2009 - 4:23 am

Oh I love her, and my daughter would too (her favorite color is purple). We’ve had a string of bad luck lately and it would be nice to start turning it around with her. Crossing my fingers!

Lee - December 13, 2009 - 4:28 am

She would definitely be loved here at our house! Thank you for the contest.

Cordelia - December 13, 2009 - 4:34 am

How exciting! I love your dolls and hope some day to own one. Thank you for doing this!

dixie - December 13, 2009 - 4:59 am

This is my first time visiting your site. What a cute little girl. Reminds me of my niece who I’m sure would also like to have purple highlights in her hair.

style_child - December 13, 2009 - 5:09 am

I’ve just found your dolls and have to say, they’re gorgy! I had to do a double take with this little one’s name! My daughter recently named one of her stuffed animal cats Serephina! NOT a common name and I have no idea where she would’ve heard it to come up with that. Anyway…would love to add another Serephina to our fam!!

Amber Lee - December 13, 2009 - 5:13 am

Oh all your dolls are so amazing! I can’t decide which part of them I love the most… I think it might be the hair!

Carla - December 13, 2009 - 5:14 am

Angelic name for an angelic doll! Perfect, as always!

tree*head - December 13, 2009 - 5:23 am

OK – where have I been?…I just discovered these amazing little dolls that remind me of my upbringing in Europe! Beautiful!

Katie - December 13, 2009 - 5:31 am

Oh, she’s beautiful! I love her hair. I would love to get a doll for my daughter’s first Christmas. πŸ™‚

Leia - December 13, 2009 - 5:32 am

Your dolls are AMAZING! You deserve all the goodness your company is experiencing. Love this little gal, too!

AnaB - December 13, 2009 - 5:33 am

I love, love, love the purple highlights! What a fun detail!

Eric Jackson - December 13, 2009 - 5:33 am

Please enter my name- Id like to win her for my wife for Christmas. It would be perfect since it looks just like her, even the purple highlights!! Thank you!

Marla Stout - December 13, 2009 - 5:34 am

Oh wow, Christina, she is GORGEOUS. I think one of the things that makes your dolls so special is the spirit in which they are made and because each one holds not just a piece of your heart, but the other ladies, and John, as well. They are so much like real children. As you know, we already have our perfect Bambo for the holidays, so to stay in the spirit, if I should happen to win, I plan to pay Seraphina forward to a little girl that hasn’t yet been lucky enough to get such a special doll. Happy holidays to you and your family! Hugs, ~Marla

Louisa - December 13, 2009 - 5:35 am

Your dolls are amazing! I’ve always wished for purple highlights, so Serephina is a particular favorite. What a very generous give away!

Jennifer R - December 13, 2009 - 5:36 am

She is so cute, we have not been lucky enough to get one yet.

Catherine - December 13, 2009 - 5:38 am

Love her! It’s funny as this is this is the hair/eye/dress combo I’d requested for my custom, but you were out of this fabric at the time. Now I know I do really need to stalk the clothing section for something in this fabric as it looks wonderful with the black haired dolls (but we loved the dress Tia (who we are renaming Holly) came with too!)

Liz - December 13, 2009 - 5:40 am

Another adorable doll, and so nice of you to give her away! Would love to have her join our family.

rachael - December 13, 2009 - 5:42 am

What a cutie! Thanks for the giveaway. And all of your hard work! Happy holidays to you and your family!

LIz Connor - December 13, 2009 - 5:43 am

Happy Holidays to you and your family Christina! This is so very generous of you and she is a beauty for sure!

Lori - December 13, 2009 - 5:44 am

I adore that hair! Another gorgeous gal!

Geoff - December 13, 2009 - 5:44 am

Hoping to win for my little peanut. Her momma loves your dolls.

Chris - December 13, 2009 - 5:48 am

You know I love your dolls. Can’t get enough of them. Would love to give this cutie a home (or pass her on to a friend for her kids.)

Brie Sloan - December 13, 2009 - 5:48 am

Ayden’s favorite color is purple! Oh what a beautiful doll! She would be spoiled in our house especially since my daughters are getting baby doll highchairs and cradles for christmas. Oh what a joy it would be to have her!

JulieO - December 13, 2009 - 5:49 am

Christina, I am so happy to have found you! The dolls are beautiful and we can’t wait to get one. I also love your story and that you are staying small and true to your heart. Have a great Holiday!

Barbara - December 13, 2009 - 5:49 am

Putting my name in the hat for my granddaughter and her mommy. Cute dolls!

Joy - December 13, 2009 - 6:18 am

How generous. You are such a sweet heart doing a give away in DECEMBER! My husband and I have been taken turns trying to get one of your dolls for Christmas! This would make three little girls in VA VERY happy!!!!

Amanda - December 13, 2009 - 6:18 am

I am hoping to get one of these gorgeous dolls for my daughter, who is now two and a half years old. She was born 15 weeks early and after a long initial hospitalization, is perfectly healthy. She was sitting on my lap as I browsed the site and pointing at the dolls and chattering away about them.

We’re a little late to the party with regard to how in-demand your beautiful dolls are, so I’m excited about the chance to win one. Thanks for the opportunity!

Jennifer - December 13, 2009 - 6:20 am

She’s gorgeous. I love the purple! I would cry from joy if she could come live with us!

Arlene - December 13, 2009 - 6:20 am

Erin Cronier - December 13, 2009 - 6:59 am

Christina & John,

I want to THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart. The world is not like it was when I was a kid. I am only 31, I want my kids to grow up like I did. Free and HAPPY. Your dolls remind me of my childhood, (aka the good old days) You both have a calling and gift from above. You make families happy and whole again, and for that I thank you πŸ™‚

Barbara - December 13, 2009 - 7:00 am

Oh my! How generous. My little one would love this beauty for Christmas!

Monica - December 13, 2009 - 7:04 am

Merry Christmas to you and your family, Christina!

Heather - December 13, 2009 - 7:19 am

How very generous…. she is stunning. I think that’s my favorite hair so far! Thank you so much for making these beautiful, handcrafted dolls so my little Aine can have a doll that she can pass down too.

Valery Huberts - December 13, 2009 - 7:22 am

Wow. You have done so much for so many. Your talent for creating wonderful, lasting friends is just amazing! Have a wonderful, relaxing break. ps. Serephina would love it here with our girlies πŸ™‚

Megan - December 13, 2009 - 7:25 am

Christina, what a generous heart you have!! Thank you so much for the work that you do. Seraphina is beyond beautiful and we would be so honored to welcome her into our family. Have a wonderful holiday!!

Joanne G - December 13, 2009 - 7:32 am

She’s such a cutie and love the purple!

Thank you Christina for brightening up so many little girls lives with your dolls. You have a true talent! I admire you for staying true to your values and wanting to keep your business manageable (lol right now not so much with the Christmas rush). I love the fact that your dolls are made with Canadian wool, for me it’s something very dear to my heart. I was born and raised just south of Ottawa on a sheep farm. Ok and don’t laugh at this but I was crowned Miss Eastern Ontario Sheep Princess back in the 80’s and part of my duty was to promote the Canadian wool industry in Canada. And most of all it’s nice to be able to give my daughter something that is Canadian made as it’s a rarity these days.

So again, thanks for all that you give our daughters, because as you know it goes well beyond just a doll!

Deborah Dewbury-Langley - December 13, 2009 - 7:33 am

We would love for Serephina to be a member of our family if we would be so fortunate.
And if it did happen you would probably here us all hooting and hollering with excitement all the way from Ontario to British Columbia!!

Amie *C* - December 13, 2009 - 7:35 am

She is gorgeous, just as all of your beautiful creations are. Thank you so much for doing this!

Jaclyn Greene - December 13, 2009 - 7:36 am

Amanda - December 13, 2009 - 7:37 am

Oh wow – she is SERIOUSLY adorable!! Can’t wait to see how many posts you’ll get on this one…..soooooo many people will be in love with this beauty!! Congrats on all the success you’ve had this year!

Candice - December 13, 2009 - 7:37 am

I adore your precious dolls! I would love to have one under our tree, but it just doesn’t fit in our budget this year. I would be so thrilled to get that little beauty in the mail.

Sarah B. - December 13, 2009 - 7:38 am

Oh Serephina is so sweet! We already have one of your beautiful dolls, but I can think of several good friends that would think it a treasure to have a Bamboletta doll under their tree. Thank you for the giveaway!

lee - December 13, 2009 - 7:40 am

I hope you and your family have a Merry Christmas! I would love for this to be my granddaughters first doll.

Neal - December 13, 2009 - 7:41 am

I wouldn’t know about these dolls except for the fact that my wife obsesses about them. I mean it’s bad. I’m constantly hearing about how gorgeous they are and how hard they are to get. I do know that one of my daughters would absolutely love the doll for a very long time.

Ashley - December 13, 2009 - 7:42 am

Awesome! You are so generous to think of all of us! Count me in! =)

Happy holidays to your family and all your special mamas that help you out!

Lorenzo & Francesca's Mommy (Brandy) - December 13, 2009 - 7:44 am

BonnieG - December 13, 2009 - 7:44 am

I recently found your website through SouleMama’s blog and have fallen in love with the beautiful dolls you lovingly create.

I would be over the moon to win this doll and give it to my 6 year old daughter~ she would *love* her!

I LOVE Serephina. MY daughers will LOVE these dolls… cant wait to see the look on their faces when they get their first one. God has blessed you with a gift…the gift to put smiles on thousands of little girls faces, my what a gift. :O)

Crystal - December 13, 2009 - 11:36 am

Wow. How can every doll be so perfect? What a perfect Christmas it will be for whoever gets to welcome her into their home.

Now I’m picturing my comment being crumpled up and then folded… give it a little edge in the drawing. πŸ™‚

Melissa - December 13, 2009 - 12:05 pm

Oh! We would love to have Serephina join us for Christmas! Hope she likes eggnog and shortbread cookies!

She is gorgeous, i love all the dolls that you make and i wish you happy holidays and best of luck for the year:)

Courtney - December 13, 2009 - 12:39 pm

I’ve become a bamboletta Junkie. I’ve been waiting with fingers ready for the “made to go home” dolls but I know it will come when the time is right. Serephina is as beautiful as all the rest. Blessings to you and your family.

Amanda - December 13, 2009 - 12:43 pm

I’ve been trying for a doll for my five year old! She would love this one!!!

Theresa - December 13, 2009 - 12:43 pm

Oh my, THIS IS my little Johanna’s dream doll, right down to the fabric used on the dress! She saw it on another doll some time ago and swooned. πŸ™‚ Again Christina and all the wonderful people who help you make this happen, you are the BEST and I so appreciate what you do! What an amazing little community you have built! πŸ™‚ I have always wanted to ask if you keep a tally of how many dolls you have made total from the time you have started…I am SURE it would be staggering! Thanks again for all you do and a very Merry Christmas to you all!

Amy - December 13, 2009 - 12:51 pm

Oh my, she’s lovely… Some child’s holiday will be a whole lot more magical!! Thanks for the chance to give her a home. (:

Sara - December 13, 2009 - 1:18 pm

My little cousin would love her!

Tricia Estes - December 13, 2009 - 1:19 pm

Anne Bente - December 13, 2009 - 2:42 pm

This one should be mine !!! πŸ™‚

Valerie - December 13, 2009 - 2:47 pm

Heard about your dolls a couple of years ago and couldn’t afford one at that time. Now that I can afford them I can’t get them. The irony of life sometimes. I’ll keep trying but I am also willing to accept that if I wasn’t meant to have one it won’t happen and if I was it will. With three kids if I only get one it will be tough to decide who gets it. At least I know that my kids will be getting handmade toys and gifts from across Canada no matter if I get a Bamboletta or not.

Wendie - December 13, 2009 - 2:52 pm

Thank you for all the hard work you put into making Christmas extra special for so many wee ones (and their mamas!). You have an amazing gift…thank you for sharing it with us!

Serephina is a beauty and we would love to welcome her into our family!

Teresa Sirois - December 13, 2009 - 3:11 pm

She would make a wonderful birthday gift for my Audrey

Heidi - December 13, 2009 - 3:21 pm

What a lovely gift. Please enter me. I also love the fact that you are Canadian (like me). Its so hard to find anything Canadian about waldorf dolls.

April - December 13, 2009 - 3:22 pm

Purple highlights…a girl after my own little girl’s heart. Come on karma, bring her our way πŸ™‚

Bunny - December 13, 2009 - 3:58 pm

Wow, she is beautiful! We would love to have her spend Christmas with us. Happy Holidays!

Katie T - December 13, 2009 - 3:58 pm

She would be perfect for my Macky, we haven’t had the pleasure of owning one of your gorgeous dollys yet as Macky’s medical expenses are very high, she is special needs and is 6 years old but more like a 2 year old developmentally she loves babies and would give her a great home thank you for considering my Macky Blessings to you and Happy Holidays!

melissa t - December 13, 2009 - 4:25 pm

She would have a wonderful home with my little four year old and well me too.

Jennifer - December 13, 2009 - 4:29 pm

I just recently discovered your beautiful work, and I am in love! Serephina is exotic and beautiful! Thanks so much for this giveaway. My daughter Gracie and I promise to give this dollie a loving home if we win. xoxo

Sarah - December 13, 2009 - 4:36 pm

Oh. Be still my heart. What an amazing gift, she would be very loved in our all girl (plus husband) house. My oldest piles her babies up and nurses and rocks each one. She is well on her way to being a kind mama. Thanks for the chance to make my daughters happy.

Tina A. - December 13, 2009 - 4:38 pm

She is gorgeous! I love her name, too! Thank you for giving us such a wonderful sweet gift. Good luck, mamas!

SueAnn Wirick - December 13, 2009 - 4:55 pm

What a beautiful girl……….another opportunity in the baby lottery. YEAH. And I don’t have to get up at 4:30 am! It would really make my Christmas if she came East to Richmond VA

ronda - December 13, 2009 - 5:08 pm

oh what a beautiful doll! my paige just had her pink and purple highlights cut out of her hair, and she would love to have this girl with highlights of her own! merry christmas!!

Fred - December 13, 2009 - 5:46 pm

Emily - December 13, 2009 - 6:15 pm

Yani and Isabella - December 13, 2009 - 6:25 pm

Christina, thank you so much for being so generous, and giving the opportunity to a little boy or girl to get a bamboletta. My daughter has been asking for a bamboletta and I have been trying to get her one. So I tell her that the right time will come and to be patient. This one is soooooo cute.

Carla - December 13, 2009 - 6:30 pm

I have to enter, even though I never win anything. There is always a first time for everything!

kristen - December 13, 2009 - 6:32 pm

bambo angel - December 13, 2009 - 6:43 pm

I will find it a good home!

Alison - December 13, 2009 - 6:52 pm

She is so beautiful! I would love to welcome her into our home. Merry Christmas to you and your family! ( – :

Casey - December 13, 2009 - 6:56 pm

Oh I would LOVE to win a doll for my Ally, she is just in love with dolls lately and things have been tight financially. I don’t think we’ll be ordering a doll or custom any time soon though I LOVE looking at them and hope to save for one for her birthday next November. What a beautiful doll, and if we don’t win…it wasn’t meant to be our girl. Totally agree that the right doll finds the right home. Hope you and your family have a very Merry Christmas and what a great thing to do to have a contest.

Tanya B - December 13, 2009 - 6:56 pm

Love the dark hair!! My 2 1/2 year old would love her!!! Send her to Idaho. πŸ™‚

Rebecca - December 13, 2009 - 7:03 pm

Seraphina is a beautiful, serious dream! The artful cherubs you make are truly the stuff of dreams, if you’ll forgive a cliche. And here is me, dreaming that Seraphina will make it to our house, to join my sweet daughter Merida, who, right now, I hope, is having sweet dreams of a little dark-haired friend, with that mystical look of contentment on her soft, soft face.

Lisa Marie Macri - December 13, 2009 - 7:22 pm

OK, seriously, how ridiculously cute is Seraphina!?! We would be considered some lucky peeps if she made the trip down to NJ to live with us. I have one 19 month old babytown at home named Olivia, and another that is literally waiting to burst forth from my womb any day now (Sylvie is her name) and they would be delighted to have a new sista in their house. Looking forward either way to see on FB who the random winner is- good luck to all you Bamboletta sassafrasses out there!

Amy - December 13, 2009 - 7:34 pm

Dear Christina,

Seraphina is absolutely beautiful!!!! What a lovey!!! Wishing you a wonderful holiday season!!!

shannon - December 13, 2009 - 7:42 pm

I LOVE HER how freakin cute is she!!!!!!!I have a little girl who would love to find her in her stocking and have her be her new best friend!!!!

Norma - December 13, 2009 - 7:46 pm

Rachel V - December 13, 2009 - 7:52 pm

Diane - December 13, 2009 - 8:05 pm

I want you to pick me. Thanks.


Paula Santos - December 13, 2009 - 8:06 pm

Hi Christina

I have been dreaming about your dolls for quite long time, hoping that one day I will get one, either like this way or be able to have the opportunity to buy one from you….We, my daughter and I, would be soooo happy in having Seraphina.
Thank you

Michele - December 13, 2009 - 8:08 pm

Awww, she is precious! I love her pigtails! I’ve been wanting to order a couple of dolls from you for sometime!

Thanks for the chance

Erin - December 13, 2009 - 8:24 pm

I’m a newbie to Bamboletta, but they are beautiful and remind me of the handmade dolls my great aunt used to make… with a funkier wardrobe! I would love to see this little beauty under the Christmas tree!

Momma T - December 13, 2009 - 8:27 pm

What a beautiful doll!

Janie - December 13, 2009 - 8:32 pm

Ohhh… Chistina, every time a see one of your wonderful doll, my heart beat faster… I guest I’m not that grown-up after all! Since last september, I never been fast enough to adopt one for the kids, but if Seraphina come to live with us in Montreal, I teach my little Edouard and his sister AdΓ¨le to be good friends to her for all there life!!!
Thanks for the chance and have a happy holiday!

Kathy Valencia - December 13, 2009 - 8:33 pm

What a generous giveaway. I love your dolls and she is so sweet looking, she looks like my daughter. Things are tight now for us but hopefully soon I will be able to get one for my her. She loves looking at your dolls and picks the ones she likes.
Happy Holidays!

She’s gorgeous, and I have an almost 5-year-old who would love her and take VERY GOOD care of her.

AndiT - December 13, 2009 - 10:08 pm

Adorable! I just can’t decide what doll is a favorite. All so unique and cute!!

Heather Galbraith - December 13, 2009 - 10:50 pm

Wow!!! Seraphina is a real beauty and she has the most magical name!!!
My little boy and girl would absolutely adore her – she would be part of the family.

Leila - December 14, 2009 - 1:18 am

Yay! I love her so much! My favorite part are the purple bits in her hair, though I know my daughter’s favorite would be the princess-y dress. =)

Roberta L. - December 14, 2009 - 1:19 am

Love this! I am a big Tilbrooks fan too.

Hayley - December 14, 2009 - 1:23 am

I’m not eligible for the competition, being in Australia, but just wanted to say she’s a lovely little companion, sure to make someome smile many times over πŸ™‚ Best wishes, Kristy.

michelle hsieh - December 14, 2009 - 1:25 am

She is soo cute! Thanks for having this contest!

Natalie - December 14, 2009 - 1:26 am

I suppose it would be tacky to say I want this doll because she looks a bit like me. I even wore my hair like that today! It would be for my son, of course, but I would play with her too. So sue me, I guess I’m tacky.

Beatriz - December 14, 2009 - 1:47 am

Impressive work! It brought me back to the time when I got my first hand-made doll. This is what playing/learning should be all about: learning how to value toys as important pieces of art work that need to be cherished, not disposable pieces of plastic.

I will promote your beautiful dolls as much as I can in the DC area, and one of them will certainly be on my Xmas (or late Xmas) list. Keep up with the good work!

Happy holidays!

Adrianne - December 14, 2009 - 1:48 am

Merry Christmas Christina and John! What a way to end the year. A giveaway!! You guys are the best!!! I am very excited for the chance to meet little Serephina.

Beautifull doll, our girl would love to have her.
Happy Holidays!

Lillie - December 14, 2009 - 2:12 am

What else can you say? She is just adorable. Today is my daughters birthday maybe we will get lucky, but hey it’s Christmas be grateful for all the things you have and try to help others.
May GOD Bless each and everyone of you this Holiday Season.

Jess - December 14, 2009 - 2:45 am

tabitha lew - December 14, 2009 - 3:12 am

purple highlights :o)

Christine - December 14, 2009 - 3:17 am

It’s debatable who would love this dolly more, my daughter or me. I might sneak into her room sometimes when she is not looking and have a cuddle…

Karen - December 14, 2009 - 3:28 am

What a lovely little girl and I know just the home for her!
Your work is gorgeous and I wish Peace and Love to you and your family this Christmas season.

Meghan - December 14, 2009 - 3:49 am

Happy holidays!

Justina - December 14, 2009 - 4:20 am

Yesterday morning, I was one of the many who attempted to purchase a doll (Noelle, specifically) for my daughter. Absolutely amazing! I’ve never seen anything like it…after going to “check out” with my first choice, I thought I should go back to the home page at 11:02 (EST) to purchase a second doll (heeding your warnings and thinking I might have had a slim chance for the first choice), and when I did, all of those sweet dolls were sold out. You and your family of mamas and papas have made so many little girls happy; I just can’t wait until my little one can cuddle with her own bamboletta.

karina - December 14, 2009 - 4:29 am

NOOOOOO! Australian fan is crying πŸ™

Its ok, I will be ok πŸ™‚
But I am getting a double entry next time πŸ˜‰

goodluck mamas and papas!!

hope you guys are all on the mend Christina:)

She can come to Nana’s house! I could never pass up the chance to adopt a new Bamboletta child πŸ™‚

Wendy - December 14, 2009 - 5:33 am

Your dolls are amazing!! They are so beautiful and gentle, yet they have their own funky touch. I love it! I really wanted to have one made for my daughter’s birthday next month, but I will have to wait for next year. It would make my year to win one for her. Thank you for making such gorgeous, one-of-a-kind dolls. πŸ™‚

Hope - December 14, 2009 - 5:41 am

Love those buns!!! We would adore the opportunity to give Serephina a new home and promise to give her all of the love and attention that she deserves. These giveaways are so generous of you, Christina – wish me luck!!!

I wanted to say that what you are doing for the Project Somos is wonderful and an inspiration. Also your dolls are beautiful! My dd would be tickled to love up a waldorf doll, as she has sheep with 4H and just loves to cuddle wool. Have a great day!

Christine - December 14, 2009 - 7:11 am

She’s adorable. Please enter my name for the draw. My daughter Violet would love a little purple dressed Bamboletta. Maybe the stars will align and we will be the lucky one (with a 1 in 410 chance right now!) but you never know.
Love your dolls and you’re a very talented lady. Thanks for all you do.

Catherine - December 14, 2009 - 7:11 am

Anxiously awaiting the day I can give a Bamboletta to my baby girl…they are ALL so lovely.

Shea - December 14, 2009 - 9:34 am

Want. Need. Gotta have her! Your dolls are all so darling.

Anastasia - December 14, 2009 - 9:35 am

I had been looking long, but apparently not hard enough!, for a sweet, simple, non-plastic/factory-made doll for my four year old daughter. Ava has been requesting a doll that she can dress and undress with ‘cute clothes like me’ and I had settled for a doll that I wasn’t crazy about but knew my daughter would like her!

Looking for extra outfits today on etsy, I came across clothes made for a Bamboletta and, oh dear… I immediately fell in love. Your dolls are just perfection – the materials and construction alone, but aside from that, they are absolutely darling and full of so much personality! I have been poring over your flickr page and stalking them all over the internet – I’m ruined! I would absolutely love to have this sweet girl for my sweet girl this Christmas, but I know where ever she lands she will be loved & adored.

Love, love, love what you’re doing. Keep up the beautiful work & Merry Christmas to all of you!

Sharon Adler - December 14, 2009 - 9:46 am

You have such a generous heart, thanks for a chance to win another gorgeous doll. Both of my children would adore her!

Brady - December 14, 2009 - 9:51 am

Kristine - December 14, 2009 - 10:10 am

Renee' - December 14, 2009 - 12:32 pm

Serephina is absolutely perfect! We would love to bring her into our home as a special surprise for our darling daughter, Giada who has a tough time on her birthday. You see, Giada was born on Christmas Day, so it is always a big challenge to make her birthday feel “special” since there is always so much going on. Serephina would absolutely make her birthday special this year and I know she would be the best birthday present ever (especially since Mommy hasn’t been able to snag a doll to adopt yet)! Thank you for the chance to win and Happy Holidays to everyone at Bamboletta!

Margaret - December 14, 2009 - 12:53 pm

Phebe - December 15, 2009 - 11:50 am

This would make a perfect first doll for my wee one – only 2 months old. πŸ™‚ You make lovely dolls.

Laura H - December 15, 2009 - 1:42 pm

I’ve been blessed enough myself to get a Bamboletta for my daughter for Christmas, but have a friend whose adorable daughter would absolutely love this little girl (and who can’t afford this herself). I’d like to be able to give this to her. Serephina would have a wonderful home there. It is amazing what you do, Christina. You are such an inspiration to me. Reading through your old blog entries has been absolutely uplifting.

Nikki Taylor - December 15, 2009 - 2:12 pm

She is so cute! I love the pattern on her dress too!

Jill Gustafson - December 15, 2009 - 2:26 pm

She is beatutiful. I think she would love to come and live on our farm in the country. What wonderful new experiences for her. My grandaughters would love the company. She would be a special friend and loved more than you can imagine.

Elaine Armstrong - December 15, 2009 - 2:59 pm

jenny denysneko - December 15, 2009 - 4:02 pm

Soo cute! I love the buns and cute dress.

Heather K - December 15, 2009 - 4:12 pm

After much debate with my husband, then a soft sell, then a hard sell, we finally AGREED tp started looking for a doll for my 5 year old son. His birthday is today and he is such a nurturer that I think he will really treasure these beautiful dolls. I spent hours on line and your dolls stand head and shoulders above the rest. They are really special. He’s always wanted a little sib, so hopefully he’ll have his own bamboletta soon and can practice his big-brothering for the real one (finally!) growing in my belly. Thank you for all your hard work on these unbelievable dolls! Happy holidays!

Marissa - December 15, 2009 - 4:35 pm

Wow! She’s beautiful! I have a nine yr old little girl who would love to be her “big sister!” Happy holidays to you and yours. β™₯

Brenda D. - December 15, 2009 - 5:06 pm

I was so happy to learn about your dolls! I have a daughter who is 3 in February. Her favourite play activity at the moment is to dress up her stuffed animals and oversized puppet from Folkmanis called Curlylocks. Serephina, a doll that has clothes expecially made for her would be a huge bonus, as currently my daughter takes her own clothes, from underwear to blouses, and forces them to fit on all her stuffies and Curlylocks. Serephina would be a great addition to our family! We hope to also be a lucky download for the Custom doll today at 6pm. I like the natural toys and try to stay away from plastic. So, the love, skill and thoughtfulness of materials put into your dolls is greatly appreciated! We can’t wait to have our very own! Happy Holidays and all the best in 2010!

Nancy - December 15, 2009 - 5:07 pm

Super cute!! How nice of you!

Susan - December 15, 2009 - 5:07 pm

She is beautiful… my daughter would love her as a little friend. Thanks for the giveaway and happy holidays.

Bekki - December 15, 2009 - 5:15 pm

I’m hoping this is a sign!!! My daughter calls all her babies seraphina. Oh what a special present this would be!!!!

Hopefully my luck will turn around :β€’)

Claire - December 15, 2009 - 5:27 pm

What a beautiful doll! She would make a wonderful companion for my sweet little friend Audrey. Thanks for the giveaway!

Shevaun - December 15, 2009 - 5:35 pm


Sara - December 15, 2009 - 6:05 pm

Gina - December 15, 2009 - 7:23 pm

My family is obsessed with looking at the new additions to the Bamboletta family each week. We are hoping to get a doll for a special member of our family who is about to turn 1!
Happy holidays πŸ™‚

Jennifer - December 15, 2009 - 7:41 pm

We would really really love her. Sigh.

Helen G - December 15, 2009 - 7:48 pm

We would love to have this doll for our granddaughter. She has a new cousin and really would like a dolly to take care of.

Ed - December 15, 2009 - 7:49 pm

I can’t even begin to tell you how much my daughter would love this. My little “peanut” would be over the moon if daddy managed to snag one of the babies she dreams about.

Alicia - December 15, 2009 - 7:52 pm

Oh, what a little beauty! I just love her hair:) And what an appropriate name for the season! I do hope I win her, I know a little girl who would just LOVE to own this baby!!!

Nora - December 15, 2009 - 7:58 pm

It is sure a cute doll!!! Have a wonderful Christmas.

Brandon - December 15, 2009 - 8:08 pm

Tina @ Squirrel Acorns - December 15, 2009 - 8:23 pm

Oh my! How wonderfully generous! All of your dolls are so beautiful and special. I love this one’s dark hair. And highlights! It’s that kind of thing that makes them all so unique and special. I hope you and your family have a wonderful holiday! Thanks for helping dreams come true for so many children this season!

Bill - December 15, 2009 - 9:20 pm

Sarah - December 16, 2009 - 12:43 am

Oh my- she is just beautiful! I am in love and I know my little ones would be too! πŸ™‚

Sarah - December 16, 2009 - 5:24 am

So good of you to do a holiday contest. The spirit of the season is so fleeting; this is amazing. Thank you and we’d love to win! Although anyone would hugely benefit from your generosity. πŸ™‚

Love this doll……….please enter my lovely daughter Chloe for this beauty. We are newbies and she would be perfect for our first Bambo. Although we are also in love with Zara the Newbie girl.

Jamie Robinson - December 10, 2011 - 7:46 pm

She is beuatiful. I love the purple highlights

Who We Are

There are a lot of new people coming to Bamboletta – like a LOT so I thought I’d take this opportunity to introduce us. I think that with all the press and attention that we’ve received as of late that people may think that we are way bigger then what we actually are. Bamboletta consists […]

Tressa - December 8, 2009 - 11:40 am

Very nice, Christina! A gentle reminder of the process – and of the relationship built between doll maker + doll, dollmaker + customer. I hope this helps to ease demanding demand.

Wendie - December 8, 2009 - 12:27 pm

Thank you for staying true to what you believe in, Christina. You have a beautiful heart and it shines through in every doll you create. You add a little bit of magic to our lives.

Jennifer - December 8, 2009 - 1:32 pm

Christina you are such a love, and it shows in your words and the work you do with your beautiful dolls. Hopefully your entry helps people understand the time and energy you put into your business.

Maggie was was well worth the wait for us.

Love and laughter.

Emily M. - December 8, 2009 - 1:53 pm

lovely post, christina!

Amber - December 8, 2009 - 5:54 pm

Your dolls really are treasures, and I am glad that you are holding true to the process that makes them so special. This is the magic, and challenge, of handmade items. They are not mass-produced, so not everyone can have one. But you would lose an essential part of what Bambolettas are if you sacrificed that.

ingrid - December 8, 2009 - 8:49 pm

I liken it to having or adopting a baby. You don’t really know what it will look like even though you may have chosen the hair or eyes. And part of the excitement is the waiting and hoping and wondering what this little addition to your family will be like. We’re not simply just “buying” a doll for our little ones, but adopting a lifelong friend/sister/brother/companion. How can you rush that? And why would you want to? And through this process you become a part of the Bamboletta family. It’s really a lot more than just buying a doll.

Can Can (Mom Most Traveled) - December 8, 2009 - 10:50 pm

I’m excited about these big developments for Bamboletta!
I wonder what the world Bamboletta population is?

Ann - December 9, 2009 - 1:12 am

Hello Christina – many thanks for the beautiful doll you made for my granddaughter in the summer – she arrived just before the new baby brother – and she was so full of life! And thank you for the little pixie you sent for James, that was very kind of you. Your dolls are real people to our children – we are all so grateful for the love you put into them – it really shows! Good luck!

Amy VG - December 9, 2009 - 6:25 am

What a lovely reminder. I think it’s hard to people to understand the entire lengthy process of handmaking something. I think it’s so amazing that you are willing to stay your current size and not feel like you have to expand, especially when you don’t want to. So awesome! Thank you Christina, for being so commited to lovingly providing such special dolls for our children.

Anne Bente - December 9, 2009 - 2:44 pm

The image you have got lately, I suppose, is because of the soul you give each doll you make. I’m so glad we managed to get Koah and Lisette( The Little Seth as Elisabeth call her:) before the “rush” started in here. Wish you all a peaceful Christmas!

Jill Gustafson - December 13, 2009 - 11:23 am

Christina, I think it is these values that led me to love your dolls in the first place. It is your loving caring virtues that are put into these dolls that make them so special. They would be lacking something terribly and just be plain dolls otherwise. You bring so much happiness to so many homes. I can’t imagine what that must feel like or imagine ever wanting to give that up. You are truly special.

Amanda - December 13, 2009 - 12:12 pm

I just wanted to chime in and say how amazing you and these wonderful dolls are. I was lucky enough to sneak in right before the custom ordering deadline, and Santa will be bringing “Nellie” to Julianne this Christmas. She is truly AMAZING, and I have to stop myself daily from pulling her out of hiding to oohhh and ahhhh over her! Julianne will be over the moon excited when she sees her Christmas morning — I’ll be sure to snap some pictures when she meets her new mommy! Thanks so much!!

Leanne - December 14, 2009 - 8:37 am

Christina, I keep coming back to soak in all her details. She reminds me so much of my little Miss L πŸ™‚ You really have a gift for capturing a personality with each doll. Thank you for the smile!

Kristy - December 15, 2009 - 11:47 pm

Sometimes good things come in small packages…or in this case small batches. Each one evident in the love and care then went into crafting it…I say crafting as these Bambolettas are not manufactured or produced, but lovingly created to bring joy to all (mamans, girls, boys…and even dads : ) I’ve enjoyed watching in the last year or so as more and more families become aware… as customs, ready to go and clothing disappear off the sight in minutes. This is a testiment to your hard work: Christina, John and all the others. Keep up the good work! On a side note, getting Bea ready for Christmas…can.hardly.wait!! LOL

It’s almost time for customs!

I’ve been trying to get organized for the re opening of custom dolls. I’ve got the fabric on order.. . I’ll probably change the fabric choices pretty often. I tend to get tired of prints fairly quickly, except the Folklore (the one with the squirrels) I don’t think I’ll ever get sick of that. In […]

cheryl - December 3, 2009 - 8:25 am

Love the white background mushroom one with the snails…My kids like that because there are so many of them here. and of course the strawberry. We are too big fans of the squirrel one too and then I also like the doll one…Have you seen the downloadable dolls like that you can make from paper at Mahar Dry Goods…So cute, Waiting for the 15th…..

Cheryl K-L - December 3, 2009 - 10:59 am

Oh I love the My Folklore fabric too!!!! And I think others do too. I sold out in a week after I posted it and then found out that the manufacturer has discontinued it and is no longer printing it. NOOOOOOOOOOOO!

I know my daughter is a bit young for the dolls but can I just purchase a shirt for a future doll made with this fabric? LOL.

admin - December 3, 2009 - 4:25 pm

say it ain’t so Cheryl! thanks for the heads up. i’m going to get my fabric for curtains now then. i have a vision of my studio with curtains made with folklore.
of course you can get a shirt with the fabric!! the kimonos are cute in it.

April - December 4, 2009 - 11:47 am

Good job!

hello friend! yes, the bandwidth and I’m looking at figuring out how to make this whole process more streamlined. we had almost 1200 people on the site at the same time all after the Friday dolls. i’m learning all sorts of website things, like how to ‘span’ your site – very interesting. you are totally first on my list April – you know that πŸ™‚ xo c

Kristy - December 7, 2009 - 10:07 pm

I love the new fabric!! I think it’s great that so many families are looking to get a bamboletta. I’m glad I ordered Marlie’s custom in July though. I hope you have a wonderful Holiday time with your family and do hope you take a much needed break (and go see New Moon??) I’ve seen it twice and can’t wait for Eclipse! πŸ˜€

rachel - December 8, 2009 - 8:17 pm
