We stock a range of multi-cultural dolls, including: Caucasian, Afro-Caribbean, Asian and East Asian.
The semi weighted dolls have the same characteristics as the regular and fully weighted 60cm baby massage demonstration dolls, but the weights, in the semi weighted doll, give a greater sense of balance and general realistic feel to demonstration of exercises or necessary limb manipulation. (For babywearing, see fully weighted dolls and for a lighter baby massage demonstration doll, see regular dolls)
The partly weighted head, body and limbs allow for a realistic demonstration of yoga moves and poses that are commonly carried out in a baby yoga class. Though not suitable to be used in water, the semi-weighted doll is so well balanced, it actually floats in water like a baby, so a teacher has all the benefits of a lifelike tool, without the weight! The flexible, soft-bodies parts of the doll allow for a full range of movements.
All the dolls help to reaffirm the need for positive cues to the parents because all the dolls have a facial expression that says 'yes' to yoga and massage and their eyes do not close when lying flat.
The semi weighted doll is the most useful size and weight for physiotherapists requiring a doll to demonstrate to parents (online or face-to-face) with infants around 3 to 6 months old.
