My Cuddle Kokeshi are soft and sweet. I was inspired by the traditional wooden limbless doll while I lived in Okinawa, Japan. I decided that these beautiful works of art needed to be made soft and so created my own fabric heirloom version. It was my way of bringing a piece culture into the home and to hopefully inspire a curiosity for far away lands.
I've designed her into a fun, vibrant, and slightly misshapened pillow doll character... Printed with safe water based ink onto a medium weight twill cotton, adding durability.
Choose your doll from:
-Two different bodies: white body with red blossoms or wheat body with pink blossoms
-Two face tones: light or dark
- A back side of either coordinating or natural organic twill.

Each doll is about 9 inches tall, stuffed with hypoallergenic polyfiber for a nice hug factor, and then machine sewn closed for a more secure finish.
She contains no small parts and is recommended for ages 1+. Handmade cotton tags have been cut, to prevent tiny fingers from getting stuck. Raw tag edges will be slightly fuzzy. They may be cut off, if desired.
Processing time is 2-3 business days.
Please also note that international buyers may be subject to import tax, depending on your country.
To clean, hand wash or place on a short gentle cycle. Wrap in a towel and flat press out any excess water. Dry on extra low / low heat dry. As with any fabric item or garment, her color will fade slightly with extensive washing and drying. But that just adds to her charm and is a badge of how loved she is!
