Meet Baby #5

Born May 2, 2013 at 10:01 p.m.
Wt: 5 lbs., 4 oz.    Length: 20 inches

Willow has been adopted, and lives in Alabama, USA.
Like all Heartstrings Nursery babies, Willow is a one-of-a-kind creation.

This tiny little blue-eyed darling will captivate your heart!

Willow was lovingly created from Denise Pratt's "Kinsey" 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.

Her thick, soft light golden brown mohair was micro-rooted by hand,
one or two hairs at a time, with a fine gauge needle, sealed from inside
with waterproof glue, then cut and styled.

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

Willow's 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 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. Because this is a very strong magnet, caution should be used around electronic equipment and/or anyone with a pacemaker.

Willow traveled home with her signed birth certificate,
a handmade ID bracelet, and her favorite stuffed animal.
