Dumye Limited Edition Dolls - Henry

Product Description

Product Description

 

Henry is a limited edition doll by Dumye who never misses an opportunity to impress.  Henry is dressed and ready to go in his dapper high waisted denim shorts, navy suspenders and blush bow tie.  He is hand-crafted with the most beautiful details included hand embroidered eyes and mouth and the signature Purpose PocketTM.

 

The Purpose PocketTM is a wonderful idea created by Dumye where you can leave a special message full of love, encouragement or words of wisdom for your child in a pocket on the doll, so they can keep it close by and have these words with them where ever they go.

 

When you take a Dumye doll home, you are helping spread some Karmic GoodnessTM - these dolls are helping provide jobs for women in a poverty stricken area of India and are minimising their impact on the environment by using 100% organic cotton and natural dyes as well as sustainable stuffing and recycled materials.  The best part is that for every purchase of a doll, another is gifted to an orphan or vulnerable child in need and allows them to make it their own in an art workshop.  You can read more about the Karmic GoodnessTM here.

About Dumye

 

Dumye is one of the most beautiful brands and it ticks so many boxes for what we feel toy makers should be doing.

 

Sahar Wahbeh is the wonder woman behind the brand and created these beautiful dolls after looking high and low for something special for her daughter.  That special doll that is cherished becomes part of their childhood memories.  Sahara found it difficult to find something that captured both her heart and her daughters spirit and that is when the first Dumye doll was born.

 

In the journey of creating the Dumye dolls, Sahar also wanted to teach her daughter what was important in life - to respect the environment, have compassion for others and that the real gift in life is giving to others.  The materials used for these dolls are environmentally friendly - using organic cotton, natural dyes and sustainable materials.  Production for some of the materials has been commissioned by an NGO in a poverty stricken area of India.  The proceeds that they receive goes towards education for the next generation of girls in their community.  The best part about these dolls - for every doll you buy, another doll is gifted to one of the millions of children orphaned around the world and give them an opportunity to make it their own.  At Dumye, this is known as Karmic GoodnessTM.

 

The other special thing about these dolls are the Purpose PocketsTM.  Each doll comes with a special pocket on the backside with a little piece of blank cloth tucked into it, awaiting a meaningful message.  It could be an affirmation, words of wisdom and encouragement, a prayer or words of love.  The doll and your words can be kept close and whisper into their hearts for many years to come.  If you are stuck for inspiration on what to write on the blank cloth, you can visit the Dumye blog for some ideas - find it here.

 

We love these dolls not only for all of the reasons above, but because they are so beautifully made with wonderful attention to detail on the clothing and accessories and they don’t feel too delicate to be played and loved by our children.

Development of Skills

 

Thinking & Problem Solving skills  Fine Motor skills  Emotional Skills  Communication Skills

(please see icon key below) 

 

The Dumye dolls help to build a variety of skills including:

  • Fine Motor skills:  Younger and older children need finer coordination of the fingers to help dress and undress these beautiful dolls.
  • Communication skills:  imaginative play helps to build communication skills, particularly when others join in (e.g. turn taking, listening to friends stories/instructions of the game).  Dolls become childhood friends which children engage in imaginative conversations with, which allows them practice of words, sentence structure and listening.
  • Thinking & Problem solving skills:  involving children in imaginative play stimulates their minds and encourages them think without restrictions.
  • Emotional skills:  imaginative play taps into emotions and feelings and allows children (and adults) to express themselves without placing restrictions on their thoughts,.  There is no right or wrong way for the brain to imagine.  A special doll also becomes a child’s friend which allows them to share their thoughts and feelings and develop a meaningful bond or relationship with.  They give them a sense of security when they are close by.  The special Purpose Pocket also allows the child to hold on to your special thoughts and words of love to help feel them safe and secure in times of need.

Icon Key

We have created an icon key to make it easier to identify the things you may find important in your purchasing choice and to help let you know what sort of skill development the toys can assist with when your child is playing with the product.

*This information is provided for help with normal development and safety measures should always be taken to ensure children are playing with age appropriate toys (e.g. don't let a small child who is likely to swallow toys to play with an item that carries the Not for under 3 icon).

Recycled materials - product is predominately made up of recycled materials - we will include in the product information all of the product parts that contain recycled materials

Non toxic materials - products made entirely of non toxic materials - we will ensure all ingredients/product materials are included in the product description tabs and the safety requirements they meet (e.g. FDA safety)

Not for under 3 - products contain small materials which are not safe for children under 3 years of age.  These products are not recommended for children under 3 years old.

Sensory skills - toys carrying this icon can be helpful in developing the sensory system - taste, touch, smell, hearing, sight and the movement based senses - proprioception (in our joints/muscles that lets us know if our body parts are straight or bent) and vestibular (helps keep our balance).

Thinking and problem solving skills - toys carrying this icon can be helpful in developing the way the brain processes more complex information and then how it responds to this information to help build things like intelligence, memory, creative thinking, imaginative thinking and the ability to complete daily tasks that allow us to function in a community.
