Marla Stout - June 26, 2009 - 9:13 pm

We love your contests too! What a beautiful doll.

Erin - June 26, 2009 - 9:19 pm

We’re moving to the USVI, and my little one would love to share her new experiences with another adventure seeker…looks as though Leif would help inspire her to explore the new surroundings (whether climbing trees, playing in the sand, or meeting new friends). Leif looks like he’s already been kissed by the sun! Beautiful.

Alicia - June 26, 2009 - 9:21 pm

Hooray for Boy dolls! Someone will just adore Leif!!

Zoraida - June 26, 2009 - 9:21 pm

I admire the amount of dedication you give your dolls. I know that my Daniel would love to have one, I hope to be able to buy one for him soon. I wish you all the best in your life, work and passion.

Amy MAbry - June 26, 2009 - 9:34 pm

All our little girls need a “boy friend”! Would love to bring Leif home!

jenny - June 26, 2009 - 9:37 pm

Leif is so summery and cute! I love his apple green shirt.

jennifer - June 26, 2009 - 9:39 pm

CanCan - June 26, 2009 - 9:43 pm

If he makes his way to our house, we have the perfect buddy for him. πŸ™‚

Sandra - June 26, 2009 - 9:43 pm

What a gorgeous doll! Boy dolls don’t get enough raving like girl dolls do but Leif is so adorable! We’d love to give him a home here!

Tanya - June 26, 2009 - 9:45 pm

Lief looks like the perfect little friend for my mischievious little man =)

Maria @BOREDmommy - June 26, 2009 - 9:53 pm

Hope - June 26, 2009 - 9:56 pm

My daughter loves her Bamboletta and now here comes the perfect one for my son – blonde hair and blue eyes just like him!!! Keeping my fingers crossed that he will join our little “Bamboletta lovin'” family. Christina, you are awesome to keep doing these!!!

Amber Driesman-Vowels - June 26, 2009 - 10:00 pm

Leif is adorable! I love that you’re giving away a boy doll this time Christina. My youngest would love him! (fingers crossed)

shelley caskey (waldorfmama) - June 26, 2009 - 10:05 pm

oh my goodness, i would LOVE to win this little guy! thank you so much for this lovely giveaway. here’s hoping! πŸ™‚

Sarah - June 26, 2009 - 10:08 pm

He is just delightful. I see a bit of a free-spirited surfer in him.

Lindsey - June 26, 2009 - 10:11 pm

That is one spiffy looking dude doll. That slightly crooked smile *grin* reminds me of my son when he’s being a little devious. If we put Leif in some sweat pants he would have an immediate partner in crime!I bet my son would say that it was Leif that spilled the bag of chocolate chips…not him. πŸ™‚

(here is to hoping for a shot at the drawing! My daugther has an American Girl doll…but there’s just not that much out there for boys.)

Lorenzo & Francesca's Mommy (Brandy) - June 26, 2009 - 10:12 pm

“Mommy, I want to get this doll for ‘Cesca because I think she would love him and kiss him and (s)nuggle with him in her letto (bed in italian) and sometimes he could come in my letto too perche dobiamo condividere Mamma, actually.” (because we have to share Mommy…awww….)

And share they would, Lorenzo even says so!

Ok, if we can’t adopt him, we’ll be adopting someone!!!! These are gorgeous and we are totally in love!

gardenmama - June 26, 2009 - 10:13 pm

Your very generous mama!
Little Leif is gorgeous : )
He reminds me of my son with his long blonde hair : )
My little ones would be happy to have him as a friend!

Katie - June 26, 2009 - 10:16 pm

I heart leif.

Natalie - June 26, 2009 - 10:16 pm

I’ve been entering your contests for the girl dolls, knowing if I won, the doll would really be *mine* to share with my son. But this one, well, he’d be Milo’s. So here’s hoping!

Tiffany Stone - June 26, 2009 - 10:17 pm

What a sweet little guy! My younger son would love to share some summer (and fall and winter and spring) adventures with Leif!

Jane Swanson - June 26, 2009 - 10:17 pm

I have three grandsons who would LOVE this wonderful boy doll!
Crossing my fingers and toes on this one!

Lauren A - June 26, 2009 - 10:18 pm

My best friend has a son who could really use a “buddy” now, since his older sister and now new little sister won’t be sharing any of their girls with him. Leif would be welcome in this family!

Carrie T. - June 26, 2009 - 10:22 pm

This sweet doll looks just like my son, Sagey! He would make the perfect construction companion!

Stine Bernhardt - June 26, 2009 - 10:22 pm

I have been looking at your dolls many many times…simply LOVE them!!!! Wish that I had a doll like that, when I was a child πŸ˜‰
But this doll would be perfect for our son Bastian, I have been looking around to find him a speciel “friend” to take with him to daycare ect…
Even the name is right, since we live in Denmark and Leif is a Danish name…lol

Hope that we will be the lucky family!!!!

Serena - June 26, 2009 - 10:23 pm

The dolls are super amazing + Leif will make a very good pal!
He has such good hair.

I have a Lars who would adore a Leif! Your creations are beautiful- I admire your work!

Alicia - June 26, 2009 - 10:25 pm

I know a little boy (and his baby sister) who would just love to cook dinner and tea for Lief! (and nurse him, and put him to bed, and cuddle him during the storms that we get here in the sticky hot midwest)

Lisa Stahly - June 26, 2009 - 10:25 pm

(Brooke’s son)

Chris - June 27, 2009 - 9:10 am

My family and I work with newly arrived Bhutanese refugees who have lived most of their entire lives in Nepali refugee camps. We are constantly on the look out for toys for the children, but find “decent, nice” boy toys very difficult to come by. We want these little guys to grow up loving and kind, instead of using sticks as make-shift guns. Your precious boy doll Leif would make one little boy mighty happy!!! Your dolls are gorgeous and I especially LOVE your project in Guatemala. We’ve done similar things in Ecuador and it’s amazing how talented the women are!! Thank you for your work and generosity!!!

Rebecca Kern - June 27, 2009 - 9:13 am

Alexis J - June 27, 2009 - 9:16 am

WOW!!!! That little Leif look’s like a mini version of my son Roman…. Down to the blue eyes and awesome wild blond hair. Roman would love to give him a home in Victoria!

Kristy - June 27, 2009 - 9:32 am

This little boy doll reminds me of my nanny’s son, Cael. He is such a spirited boy who loves to run, dance and play…he has been such an inspiration to my own daughter Marlie. I swear she has been talking sooner, walking sooner, and truly enriched by having Cael in our life (she’s always trying to keep up). Unfortunately, in September their together will shorten as my nanny, Missi, will be starting nursing school…as a single mom who has spent her last two years nannying to be with her son…I’d love to be able to give this to Cael as he goes on to new adventures at Alameda Montessori (sans Marlie) Such a beautiful boy doll echoing Cael…his favorite color is green, same touseled hair and I swear I can see the same twinkle in Leif’s eye.

Best wishes to all,

Amelie Lachapelle - June 27, 2009 - 9:40 am

I have a little girl here who would love to have this gorgeous little Leif in his playroom…

Tamara - June 28, 2009 - 2:53 am

Leif is supercool. Our 2 year old son still loves his hand made baby doll but I feel is ready for an older doll too. I’d love to see his face light up if he gets to see Leif in the flesh!

Catherine - June 28, 2009 - 3:06 am

He is darling, looks perfect for cuddling! I love his blue eyes and super long jeans.

Ashlee Archibald - June 28, 2009 - 3:27 am

Tiffany - June 28, 2009 - 8:31 am

Leif is so cute! I love his hair–it’s very awesome. I’m crossing my fingers…I have a little sister who is 18 years younger than me, and even though I would enjoy Leif for myself, I’m sure she would enjoy him much more! πŸ˜€

Ayden Hockstein - June 28, 2009 - 8:38 am

My little guy would love to treasure Leif!!!!
I hope we win he is beautiful!

Sara Mahan - June 28, 2009 - 9:06 am

What a beautiful boy! It would be perfect for my Jonah who carries everything he finds around and calls it his baby. Leif come see us and be Jonah’s real baby!

Catherine - June 28, 2009 - 9:06 am

Leif is adorable. My son is almost 3 and I am due with another in August. He has been asking for a doll to take care of like his own baby! I already know this is going to be a tough transition for him. Winning Leif would be amazing!

Kristen - June 28, 2009 - 9:14 am

I love Leif! Thank you for the opportunity to win…

Jessica - June 28, 2009 - 9:15 am

What a cute doll! – we are expecting a baby in October and this would be a great addition to his or hers room. Thank you so much.

Tracy - June 28, 2009 - 9:25 am

He is totally adorable. I think it would be great to get a little boy doll for a boy. I’m guessing there would be lots of dads out there that would be okay with that over a “baby doll.” My daughter would love him though. She is kinda between things right now so I would love to give her something new to love and carry around. I think it would help her through some tough times being sick and having a very sick grandmother. Thanks!

Stacie@HobbitDoor - June 28, 2009 - 10:07 am

Leif is so cute! I would love to win him!

April - June 28, 2009 - 10:49 am

Absolutely beautiful dolls. I plan on ordering at least 4 for my nature-based playschool beginning in the fall.

Missy - June 28, 2009 - 12:00 pm

I would love to win this doll…my son (a blondie) has a mass-produced plastic doll that he calls “Baby Cry” and tries to nurse it like Mama does with his little brother. Whenever I wear my youngest (6 months) in the Moby wrap, my oldest (he’s 2) has to wear Baby Cry, so I rig up a scarf wrap for him. Your dolls are amazing!

gabriella - June 28, 2009 - 12:20 pm

Please… I have to win this little guy for MY little guy! In the last giveaway, I wanted to win a little “girlfriend doll” for my son. But this would be more appropriate for him. I have been wanting to purchase one of your dolls for him since his birth. We just can’t afford a doll for the time being. How wonderful would it be have this special doll just for him to hug and carry around!

Juliette - June 28, 2009 - 12:23 pm

we LOVE our doll…so sweet and huggable and perfect! makes me want so many more!!! we love what you do, thank you….

Kelly - June 28, 2009 - 2:06 pm

I hope I win! I love, love, love your dolls!

Teri Cook - June 28, 2009 - 3:21 pm

Norah - June 28, 2009 - 8:49 pm

My baby to be Luca would love to snuggle up next to this little guy.

Erin Zackey - June 28, 2009 - 9:20 pm

Oh my goodness is he ever a charmer! Our little ones would be so smitten to have him in their lives! πŸ™‚

June and Lilli - June 28, 2009 - 9:31 pm

Oh how I LOVE your dolls!!! This handsome little guy is no exception!! We’d love to bring him home and shower him with affection!!

KATHY S - June 28, 2009 - 11:53 pm

What a cutie! My two granddaughters (ages 2 and 6) each have a girl ragdoll, and Lief would be the perfect companion for them. Love that hair…kind of a blondish red which is what my daughter (their Mommy) has…they would get a kick out of that! I love the impish smile and his big blue eyes! While browsing your gallery, I’ve got some ideas for Christmas dolls for the girls! Thanks for the giveaway!

Nele - June 28, 2009 - 11:59 pm

His hair! So funky, so bold and so adorable…. wish I had hair like that. He’d bring our all girl home into balance..

Rocio - June 29, 2009 - 12:09 am

Cristina - June 29, 2009 - 12:25 am

OMG! I really do understand why you love him so much πŸ™‚ My daughters will be so happy to have Leif. Especially that one day we hope for a little boy (brother) to come into our lives…. Thank you Christina for this giveaway, your dolls are, as usual, magic for us…. Hugs, C

Kellie - June 29, 2009 - 12:40 am

Wow, so I guess the response has been great!!! I have two boys, and I love to see them carry around “companions”. I think you get to see the little dad they may be one day.

Kathryn Pike - June 29, 2009 - 2:06 am

Alison - June 29, 2009 - 8:58 am

Is it just me, or are the dolls getting cuter by the day?!! I think whoever wins Leif is going to be a very lucky and happy little person.

Good luck to everybody and a BIG thanks to Christina for givng us all the opportunity to win someone new to love!!!

Christine - June 30, 2009 - 9:49 am

A Boy! A Boy! As my daughters would say (about boys in general) “He’s handsome and stinky” (I’m going to let them keep that attitude until they’re about ……40!?) Besides a boy around our house would off-set all of the pink! crossing our fingers….

Carris - June 30, 2009 - 11:09 am

I would love to have a brother for our Bamboletta Charlotte. I found Charlotte on an Aus website, and she’s coming to live with my daughter Charlotte. If I won Leif, perhaps he could be mine alone?

Stephanie - June 30, 2009 - 7:27 pm

These dolls are so special! They represent something that our culture is lacking. They help celebrate childhood, promote nurturing, and are respectful to all children. I train preschool teachers. Your little Leif would be perfect to help illustrate what we value and want for young children. I wish all children could have such toys! I truly believe the world would be a better place.

Danita - June 30, 2009 - 9:09 pm

Oh please, please, please pick our home for sunny haired Leif! My little 2 year old boy would love him to pieces!

Cari Snell - June 30, 2009 - 9:57 pm

Oooo! He is gorgeous. Such a sweet gentle face. And I love his nappy hair! I love the idea of my little boys having their own boy doll to play with, care for and pretend to be daddies with. I’ll keep my fingers crossed!

Ginger - June 30, 2009 - 10:31 pm

Well, Leif is just lovely. He would be most welcome in our home. Here’s hoping!

Nikki Fellows-Dodd - June 30, 2009 - 10:35 pm

It is great to see your dolls being loved by so many children. Evenn and Norah are waiting until the angles have sent their special friends. Keep up the great work. I love the detail in the hair. Thank you for these generous contest prizes.

My little guy is much more emotionally sensitive than my little girl, and plays with dolls so much more often than his sister, which makes mommys heart gush, of course. He would dearly love a little dude all his own!

Jenny Love - July 5, 2009 - 7:08 pm

Dear Christina,
Giving away a bamboletta? I’ve never heard of such a thing!!! I’ve been admiring your amazing dolls for a couple of years now, dreaming of one for each of my children. You do such an incredible job of capturing emotion – each one sparkles with its own unique personality. I’m happy to see that your boys are no exception. Too often, elsewhere, the boy dolls do not have the same spark as the girls. Leif is proof that boy dolls don’t need to be the least bit boring. He is a charmer!

On a different note, I want to share something with you & others. Recently I have been looking for a doll for my soon-to-be one year old’s birthday. It’s been an ongoing challenge convincing my spouse of the importance of a natural fibre doll. He thinks our kids will be too hard on them, though I totally disagree. Affectionate, yes, but not rough. Anyway, we’ve been hearing about vinyl dolls and how great they are (one retailer assured us, “they are definitely NOT plastic”). Vinyl didn’t sit right with me, but I needed proof. I found the lowdown on vinyl (aka PVC) on Greenpeace’s website. The information there is clear and unequivocal in confirming vinyl’s toxicity – for people, animals, and the planet. For anyone who is waffling on the importance of natural fibres, I encourage you to read up on PVC. It is shocking that, with all of the evidence on its harmful consequences, we continue to allow it to be produced and, even more unbelievable, we expose our children to it directly in their toys. Hooray to you, Christina, for producing such fantastic antidotes to the overabundance of “other” toys. Thank you for also making them accessible to all through these giveaways. You are very generous. They are truly works of art, but they are also so much more than that – for the children who they befriend and the rest of us who want to live gently on this earth.
all the best to you,

krista - July 5, 2009 - 10:05 pm

leif makes my heart sing!

Brandon - July 6, 2009 - 8:38 am

Carrie - July 6, 2009 - 2:04 pm

super awesome hair!! my two boys would just love him

Krista - July 7, 2009 - 3:39 pm

When my son (now 2) was born, grandma gave him an old plastic doll and told me “Everyone should have a babydoll, even boys. It teaches them to eventually become fathers”. I thought this was beautiful. The plastic doll has served us well in the bathtub, in the garden and at storytime. Perhaps we can now have a softer, more cuddly companion with which to play. Leif is beautiful with the same lovely hair as my son.

Shannon - July 7, 2009 - 4:42 pm

Is is adorable. Of course your work always is. He kind of looks like he has a personality of his own. A little spunk amoungst innocense. Reminds me of one of ours sons. Good luck to all us mamas.

Krista - July 8, 2009 - 8:50 am

When my son (now 2) was born, grandma gave him an old hard plastic doll and told me, “Every child should have a doll, even boys. It teaches them to eventually become fathers”. I thought this was endearing. The plastic doll has served us well in the bathtub, in the garden and at storytime. Perhaps we can now have a softer, more cuddly companion with which to play. Leif is beautiful with the same lovely hair as my son.

Kate Wilson - July 8, 2009 - 11:50 am

and the babies have gone home…

Miss Claire and Ms. Moore handing out dollies to the children this morning. This morning we went to a picnic to celebrate the last day of Kindercottage at Ben’s school. There was a puppet show as well, but we were kindly asked to stay outside while it was on due to Jasper’s shreik-y ways. Anyhow, […]

Chris - June 22, 2009 - 1:25 pm

Love the dolls. Glad the wool got put to a good use. Those kiddos look SO happy. πŸ™‚

What a beautiful boy you have there! I envy his amber necklace, I ordered one for myself ages ago and it hasn’t arrived! *tsk*!

nathalie - June 29, 2009 - 7:45 am

Thursday Finds

Thursday Finds are something I try to do every week with new things I find out about, books, songs, whatever really.. AsΒ  you can imagine I buy loads of fabric. I’ve resisted going the wholesale route because – well – then you have to commit to a whole bolt and a particular designer and I […]

The undies are so cute! I want a pair…..I mean for the dolls. or even matching ones for my girls! Thank you for letting me know about a fabric shop in ON! I will definitely check it out!!

Sarah Theriault - June 19, 2009 - 5:17 am

Thank-you so much for the Canadian fabric source! Must check it out right now.

Cheryl - June 19, 2009 - 1:55 pm

Thanks you so much for spreading the word about my store πŸ™‚ And I agree… I have a soft spot for the Japanese Import fabrics. Something about them makes my heart race. I am trying to offer a wide variety of fabrics – some modern and clean, some a little bit cheeky and fun. So if there’s anything you’d like to see, let me know!

I’ve noticed tweeting is off and on for me as well. Difficult to do it consistently when you have kids to raise at the same time.

I love those strawberry undies! Wish I had a pair of adult sized ones. Haha πŸ™‚ One day soon I will be ordering a little doll for the Pink Panda. And maybe I’ll order an extra pair of undies so she can match with her doll!

Take care!

Wendi - June 19, 2009 - 3:13 pm

How about a peasant top, and little ribbon trimmed skirt like these I’ve been making for my daughter all summer:
Or, a little smocked top sundress (Like in the Weekend Sewing book), with a coordinating short-sleeve sweater?
Wish I had one of your dolls, I’d love to sew up a wardrobe for her!
Ooh, little capris would look good with a peasant top, or a smock top shirt!
How about a little baseball cap for the boy doll?

Angela - June 21, 2009 - 3:51 pm

Congratulations Angela! Now we get to be excited about the boy doll-its fun even when you don’t win!

Maddie - June 16, 2009 - 8:23 am

Congratulations you very lucky girl! This is said whilst wrestling down those little green monsters of course hihi; just kidding, enjoy!

jenna and sasha - June 16, 2009 - 8:47 am

loved that letter! we feel the same way about mass produced items. my grandmother hand made dolls for me when i was small, i still have those dolls… but somehow all the barbies have been misplaced over the years. kids can tell when something was made and given with love, when something is made with love its hard not feel loved. i shudder everytime i see “those” dolls on the shelves. so glad i was able to give my daughter a real toy!

Wendi - June 16, 2009 - 10:52 am

I feel the same way when the weather is beautiful. Unfortunately it’s passed by pleasant, and turned into ‘sweltering blanket of heat’ around here lately!

Tressa - June 17, 2009 - 8:21 am

boy doll boy doll boy doll boy doll can’t wait can’t wait can’t wait …..

have you checked out the organic island festival? my booth is above the children’s village. july 4 + 5th at glendale gardens – it would be a perfect market spot for you … i’d love it if you could come down anyway, have a visit and check out all the amazing exhibitors (and THE GRAPES OF WRATH!).

Monica - June 17, 2009 - 9:04 am

Congratulations Angela!!! Thanks for the fun Christina!!

Markets and Thursday Finds

Last year’s farmer’s market in Vancouver.. I’m thinking about doing Farmer’s Markets again. This is something John finds insane as I can hardly build up any stock – and it’s only June (he tells me this several times daily -because the Holiday Insanity is on the horizen). But, truth be told,Β  I miss it. I […]

Hum…..Is it wrong to plan a vacation around where you’re going to market? πŸ˜‰

Petra - June 12, 2009 - 10:25 am

Oh you naughty girl! I was in Victoria last week and at the market in Sidney… and I thought oh I wish Christina was here with her lovely ladies… and now I’m back in Calgary. It would of been death to my pocket book but who cares? My partner is still waiting for more boxes to show up. “Are you sure you haven’t already bought another one?” πŸ˜€

April - June 12, 2009 - 12:29 pm

Yay, thanks for the muffin recipe, my little guy is on an elimination diet and I’m trying so hard to find yummy treats for him!

Tricia - June 13, 2009 - 2:19 pm

The Sidney market is great! Lots of great vendors and is a lot of fun! You should totally do it! Oh and you should do it say July 1ist….when I’ll be in sidney

Fabiola - June 15, 2009 - 10:30 am

Oh Christina I hear you! being a one woman operation over here makes it extremely hard to build any sort of stock of whatever…i’ve only done a very small craft market and seeing other people/talking to them is so cool! besides…the best part, like you say, is to see children grab something…to see that a tiny one likes what you make (because obviously is mostly the moms buying the dolls) is SO rewarding…big smile on my face too. Seeing that photo makes me realize though what it’s needed to be done when attending a real farmer’s market…and seeing the dolls in such a big bunch must be so awesome! hopefully your attendance this year won’t be too hard to pull off!! best wishes πŸ™‚

Keri - June 15, 2009 - 12:52 pm

I love your display in the photo. It’s a child’s paradise.

It reminds me of the couple that used to sell these wonderful stuffed animals at the neighborhood market in the town where I grew up. I still remember the skunk my mom bought for me–and the deep disappointment of my cousin getting the almost-life-sized dolphin stuffed animal instead of me! πŸ™‚

Good luck with the market. I know if you were at our neighborhood farmers market, I would be in deep trouble.

Wendi - June 15, 2009 - 4:45 pm

Oh, the market would be delightful! Wish you were local!

Lisa - June 16, 2009 - 10:42 pm

Gah! A possible appearance at the Sidney Market? Why oh why couldn’t I still be living in Victoria? πŸ˜€
