Meet the Very First Heartstrings Nursery Baby

Born March 25, 2013 at 1:04 a.m.
Wt: 5 lbs., 1 oz.    Length: 19 inches

Maria has been adopted and now lives in Alabama, USA.
All Heartstrings Nursery babies are one-of-a-kind, so there is only one "Maria".

What tiny little Maria lacks in size, she makes up for in pure sweetness.
This cuddly little one was lovingly created from Aleina Peterson's "Shyann" sculpt.

Multiple layers of Genesis Heat Set paint 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.

Maria's dark brown mohair was rooted by hand, one or two strands
at a time, with a fine gauge needle, sealed from inside with
waterproof glue, and hen cut and styled.

Her beautiful brown eyes have amazingly realistic detail.
Long black lashes were hand-applied, and her eyebrows were painted on with a superfine brush to give them a barely-there appearance.

Her nose has not been opened, and she has no magnets.

Maria's limbs, head, and jointed doe suede body are weighted
with tiny glass beads and filled with silky soft 100% premium polyester fiberfill. Her tiny fingers and toes were given a realistic manicure,
and then sealed with varnish.

Like all Heartstrings Nursery babies, Maria is signed and numbered,
and went home with her birth certificate, a Heartstrings Nursery COA,
 her favorite stuffed animal, an extensive layette,
and a whole lot of extras.
