Kieran has always been into the role of a “little mommy”. She loves taking care of dolls in every way—from feeding time to nap time. Most of all, she loves to love them!
Pronounced “Nelly”, this sweet blonde doll by HABA was welcomed with wide-open arms. I love how dolls put my daughter into instant role-playing mode. Kieran instantly fell in love. The first activity she did with her doll was take her for a walk in the doll stroller, followed by nap time (for the doll, of course). She even taught Nele how to do Eskimo Kisses.
Kieran also loves the red flower hairband that comes with Nele. She also doubles it as a fashionable doll bracelet when it’s not in her own hair.
I love Nele’s orange dress. It reminds me of a favorite dress we have for Kieran. It’s also a great doll to give for all these upcoming summer birthday parties we’ll be attending! I’ve never seen chenille hair on a doll before, and Kieran loves how soft it is. I like that it looks like she just came in from playing outside–just a little bit messy!
