What is Rubens Child?

Jennifer. Go to dealer

The dolls are designed by Swedish artist Ewa Jarenskrog. She named them Ruben, after her own father.

The cute dolls were first produced in 1995. They are all Swedish made and handmade. That's why the dolls cost a bit more than many other dolls. They are handmade, which gives them each their own expression. The Swedish dolls embrace several cultures and genders, and therefore the dolls are available with several nationalities and skin colours. They also have a gender and what goes with it. The dolls provide ample opportunity for child-adult conversations about boys, girls, nationalities and more. This type of toy promotes empathy in young children, thus supporting their development.

They are lifelike and have a sweet and gentle expression. The handmade dolls all have their own personality and name.
