Meet Baby #17
born December 12, 2013
6 lbs., 7 oz.            20 in.

Aubrey is a custom ordered baby. She lives in Georgia.
Like all Heartstrings Nursery babies, Aubrey is a one-of-a-kind creation.

Little Aubrey has a precious pouting face!

Aubrey was lovingly created from Denise Pratt's  "Aubrey" sculpt.
Multiple layers of Genesis Heat Set Paints were hand-applied, and each layer was baked to ensure that her baby skin will retain its beautiful detail forever.

Subtle veins, mottled newborn skin, blushing, and tiny capillaries
were painstakingly applied to create the look of a real baby.

Her beautiful soft brown mohair was directionally micro-rooted by hand,
in a natural growth pattern, one or two strands at a time,
with a fine gauge needle, sealed from inside with waterproof glue,
then cut and styled.

She has amazing Blue Topaz mouthblown glass eyes from Lauscha, Germany.
The detail in these eyes is absolutely incredible!
Her long brown lashes were hand-applied, and her three-dimensional
pale brown eyebrows were painted on with a superfine brush
to give them a barely-there appearance.

Aubrey's little limbs, head, and jointed doe suede body are weighted
with tiny glass beads and filled with silky soft 100% premium polyester
fiberfill and baby powder wafers, to give her the look, feel,
and sweet smell of a newborn baby.

She was also given a heartbeat box, so she her heartbeat
can be felt when her mommy holds her close.. 

No detail has been overlooked on this little angel.
Baby tears, moist looking lips, nose, and ears,
and tiny manicured fingernails and toenails
add to the realism of this little girl.

Her nose has been opened, shaded, and backed with purple felt,
to give the appearance of "breathing". She has
a magnet behind
her mouth so she can take a modified magnetic pacifier.

Like all Heartstrings Nursery babies, Aubrey went to her new home with
her birth certificate signed by the artist, a handmade ID bracelet, a beautiful
layette, and her favorite little stuffed animal
