With very little adjustment, this collectable Rag Doll will also make a delightful gift for a child. Please be very aware of the hazards caused by small parts, such as glass eyes and buttons and amend the pattern if necessary. We also recommend that you overstitch seams to ensure that your Rag Doll will be ready for a lifetime of play.
