The Touch-Needs 60cm (3 - 4 month size) 'weighted' demonstration doll has been especially designed with the needs of the Infant Massage Teacher and Baby Yoga Teacher in mind. The weighted dolls have the same characteristics as the 'standard' 60cm baby massage demonstration doll doll, but the extra weights give a greater sense of balance and general realistic feel to the demonstration.We stock a range of multi-cultural dolls, including: Caucasian (blue and brown eyed), Afro-Caribbean, Asian and East Asian. This doll is perfect for those undertaking a baby massage or baby yoga training course and for future demonstrations in the baby massage and yoga classes. 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 massage and their eyes do not close when lying flat. Their limbs appear relaxed and their hands are gently open (also allowing for correct demonstration of the hands – which can be difficult on a toy doll whose hands tend to be closed in a fist). The soft-bodied parts and the length of the limbs and the torso of the doll allow the teacher to correctly demonstrate a full range of movements that are a part of their massage or yoga routine as the elbows and knees flex perfectly.
