Meet Baby #20
born February 5, 2014 at 8:36 pm.
5 lbs., 4 oz.            20 in.

Ruby Grace is a custom-ordered baby. She lives in Tennessee, USA.
Like all Heartstrings Nursery babies, Ruby Grace is a one-of-a-kind creation.

Tiny little Ruby Grace is such a sweetie!
Ruby Grace was lovingly created from
Denise Pratt's retired "Kinsey" 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, blushing, and tiny capillaries
were painstakingly applied to create the look of a real baby.
Ruby Grace's tongue has been texturized to look incredibly real.

Her soft, dark brown mohair curls were 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.

Ruby Grace's beautiful brown eyes have ultra realistic detail.
Long dark brown lashes were hand-applied, and her 3-dimensional eyebrows were painted on
with a superfine brush
to give them a barely-there appearance.

Her 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.

Moist looking lips, a hint of baby tears, and tiny manicured
fingernails and toenails add to the realism of this little girl.

Her nose has been opened, shaded for depth, and backed with dark 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, Ruby Grace traveled home
her signed birth certificate, a handmade ID bracelet,
a beautiful layette,
and her favorite little stuffed animal.
