Meet Baby #52
JOSHUA
born December 24, 2014
4 lbs., 0 oz.     18 in.


JOSHUA is a custom ordered baby. He lives in Alabama.
Like all Heartstrings Nursery babies, he is a one-of-a-kind creation.


PRECIOUS LITTLE SLEEPY BOY
 
JOSHUA was lovingly created from Sandra White's  "Lexi" sculpt.
Multiple layers of Genesis Heat Set Paints were hand-applied, and each layer was baked to ensure that his baby skin will retain its beautiful detail forever.

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

His sandy blonde Slumberland mohair was micro-rooted by hand,
one or two strands at a time with a fine gauge needle,
sealed from inside with waterproof glue then cut and styled.

Long light brown lashes were hand-rooted and his
3-dimensional eyebrows were painted on
with a superfine brush
to give them a barely-there appearance.


His tiny 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 him the look, feel
and sweet smell of a newborn.

Moist looking lips, little saliva bubbles and tiny manicured
fingernails and toenails add to the realism of this little boy.


His nose has been opened, shaded, and backed with purple felt
to give the appearance of "breathing". He has a magnet behind
his mouth so he can take a modified magnetic pacifier.

Joshua has fully jointed 3/4 length arms and long legs.


Like all Heartstrings Nursery babies, Joshua went home with
a signed birth certificate, a Heartstrings Nursery COA,
a handmade ID bracelet,
and his favorite little stuffed animal.
