60cm (3 - 4 month size) Dolls

60cm Regular Doll

Approximate weight: 0.6kg

Our 60cm regular doll is representative of the length of a 3 to 4-month-old baby.

This doll has been especially designed with the needs of the Baby Massage Teacher in mind and is perfect for those undertaking a baby massage training course, or for use in baby massage classes.

The 60cm dolls' facial expression helps to reaffirm the need for positive cues to the parents during teaching sessions. The limbs appear relaxed and their hands are gently open (allowing for correct demonstration of the massage strokes on the hands). The soft-bodied parts, the length of the limbs and the torso, plus elbows and knees, which flex perfectly, allows the doll to be the ideal tool for clear demonstration.

The weight of this doll is particularly useful if  you regularly schlepp from one venue to another, with a whole host of resources, as it is lightweight and manageable.

Available ethnicities: Afro-Caribbean, Asian, Caucasian, East Asian

Potential Demonstration/Rolemodelling Uses:

  • Baby massage
  • Natural nappies
  • Nursing homes (for those living with dementia)
  • For older siblings, who wish to have a baby to care for

60cm Semi-Weighted Doll

Approximate weight: 1.6kg

Our 60cm semi-weighted doll is representative of the length of a 3 to 4-month-old baby, with added weight, appropriately distributed, so that this doll has a very realistic feel regarding the weight of a baby this size.

The semi-weighted doll is perfect for Baby Yoga Teachers, in particular and Baby Massage Teachers who prefer a little more weight to their doll when demonstrating massage to parents.

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.

Available ethnicities: Afro-Caribbean, Asian, Caucasian, East Asian

Potential Demonstration/Rolemodelling Uses:

  • Baby Yoga
  • Baby Massage
  • Car seat positioning
  • Parentcraft
  • Natural nappies
  • Occupational therapy
  • Physiotherapy
  • Mother and Baby Unit

60cm Weighted Dolls

Approximate weight: 4.2kg

Our 60cm fully weighted doll is representative of the length and weight of a 3 to 4-month-old baby.

This doll has been especially designed with the needs of babywearing consultants in mind and is useful for demonstrating front, hip and back carrying techniques in most types of standard sized carriers and slings.

The fully weighted dolls have many of the same characteristics as the regular and semi-weighted 60cm demonstration doll.  However, the hands of the fully weighted doll are gently closed, so that breastfeeding mothers, using the doll to trial a sling would not feel any discomfort.

NB: This doll is too heavy for baby massage demonstration and the weights are not correctly distributed when teaching baby yoga.  The regular (baby massage) and semi-weighted (baby massage and yoga) are better suited.

Available ethnicities: Afro-Caribbean, Asian, Caucasian, East Asian

Potential Demonstration/Rolemodelling Use:

  • Primarily Babywearing
  • Car seat positioning
  • Occupational therapy
