Meet Mattie, our Authentic Handmade Amish Doll!

Mattie grew up on a farm north of Charm, Ohio with her brother Henry. She loved going on buggy rides to Berlin when her Mom and Grandma would drive the horses to buy groceries. She and her brother Henry would sit in the back seat of the buggy and whisper to each other how they wished to one day ride in a car or an airplane. Little did they know that one day soon all their wishes would come true. Full of mischief, Mattie would always make herself a warm bubble bath when her family was sleeping. 

Mattie is a doll made like the dolls Lena played with as a little girl growing up Amish. She was handmade with love by a local Amish artisan for children to play with. The stricter nature of the Amish tradition does not allow for faces to be given to the dolls their children play with, which is why the faces on these dolls have been made blank. We encourage children and their families to open up their imagination and get creative with their own stitching and buttons to sew faces onto their dolls should they so choose! 

Mattie arrives wearing a button dress and pressed white cape, traditional attire worn by Amish girls. She also has her own white tie bonnet and tie on bib. Mattie is a plush doll all the way through, with large buttons connecting her limbs under her clothes. This allows for movement and simple, easy play for young children.

Mattie measures approximately 16" in height.

WARNING: choking hazard - small parts.
