Meet all the dolls!
Did you know that a Rubens Barn doll takes over 100 different steps by hand to create?
Dolls from Rubens Barn are sculptured in soft fabric, for a more emotional and realistic look. Their eyes are carefully embroidered to bring the dolls to life in combination with their warm cheeky smiles. Handmade dolls from Rubens Barn come in a wide range of sizes, styles, and skin colours. You might like warm comforting cuddles with Emil, exploring hand in hand with Hazel or practicing taking care of Nora. Have fun searching for your new friend!
On a journey to inspire empathy through soft doll play
Rubens Barn was founded in 1998 by two mothers sharing a common strong belief that children should be children for as long as needed. They wanted to create a comforting friend that would last a childhood of play. A handmade baby doll friend with a soft cuddly form, friendly body proportions as well as a warm and cheeky expression. Each handmade doll would then give children the opportunity to practice creativity, care, and empathy through role-play.
Rubens Barn – part of Micki
Micki took over the Swedish brand Rubens Barn in 2021 and is since a valuable memeber of the Micki family.
"When we develop a new Rubens Barn doll we always try to create a doll with a focus on education, recognition and playfulness. We believe it's very important to always use sustainable materials to care for the environment and so the dolls can spread the joy of play, from generation to generation!”
Matilda Johansson, Product developer at Rubens Barn
