Give a Quality Doll to be Cherished for Generations
Feltman Brothers Understands Quality and Value
My baby loves babies. She probably has a million and one “babies” of her own. And while most are run-of-the-mill dolls from the big box stores, nothing competes with baby Abigail. Abigail is a quality doll with beautiful hair, premium clothes, and true weight. She is truly a cherished part of the family and, I hope, will be for future generations as well.

Especially for the Holidays
If my baby had her way, we would have a room of nothing but babies for her. Her Christmas list consists of no less than 5 new dolls. So, at least she got one new doll, the beautiful Abigail doll from Feltman Brothers, this year. Kiki loves how realistic Abigail is. The soft vinyl arms, legs, and face are beautifully colored with touches of blush. And this year, Feltman Brothers has a baby boy doll and an African American baby doll to be more inclusive. I let Kiki choose which doll she wanted as she has dolls of all colors and genders and she chose Abigail.
Realistic, Quality Doll
Abigail arrived in a beautiful box, neatly secured with real ribbons. No annoying plastic tags here. Abigail arrived with her hair held in place with a hairnet and bobby pin. We use the bobby pin quite often as her beautiful hair has a tendency to cover her face if we don’t. Kiki loves holding and hugging Abigail. She loves her velvety soft plush body that is weighted to a realistic “baby weight”.
Known for Clothes
Abigail was lucky enough to have two outfits. Kiki dresses her in her classic onesie with matching bonnet for bedtime. It is perfectly soft and cozy; I kind of wish I had PJs made out of the same material. During the day Kiki switches out Abigail’s onesie for her special Christmas dress. Just like Feltman Brother’s baby and toddler clothes, Abigail’s dress features the same classic styling and premium quality. She even has matching bloomers, booties, and bonnet. Now we just have to get Kiki her matching dress in her size!
Teaching Care and Imaginative Play
Boys and girls both benefit from having a doll to play with. Kids can learn empathy and practice role-playing skills which leads to happier, more caring adults. It’s easy for kids to toss about cheap plastic dolls. Even my loving kids get a bit wold with their dolls sometimes. But there is something about having a quality doll that is solid and has some weight to it that they instinctively take better care of it. Sure, Kiki still wants to take her outside to play in the dirt and leaves, which I’m hesitant about, but there is more nurturing play overall. She wants to take care of Abigail and treat her like a real baby.
Quality that Lasts a Lifetime or More
I still have quality dolls from when I was Kiki’s age that survived my childhood to be played with again and again. Abigail is this type of doll. I feel confident that no matter how she is played with, she will hold up for years to come. Abigail is already quite special to Kiki. I hope that lasts and Kiki looks forward to sharing Abigail with her daughter in decades to come. Big box store dolls are a dime a dozen. I think every child should have at least one quality doll to play with like Abigail from Feltman Brothers.
