But friends, I had to show you this!
My daughter Grace (Buzzfloyd online), mother of the Wretched Wretch, found the MamAmor dolls, and oh they are so beautiful, delightful - such a wonderful idea. Of the ones for sale at the moment my favourite's Agnes. Which one do you like best?
They are for exploring the experience of giving birth, breastfeeding, carrying and loving and caring for babies. They are big enough to be used in group work - women's groups, children's groups, schools, all sorts - as well as suitable for individual children, who clearly love and relate to them amazingly (see the photos on the website).
It is just such a joy to see something so positive and life-affirming, beautifully and mindfully made. And I love to see artefacts individually designed and made by creative people in their own homes rather than mass-produced factory products.
God bless MamAmor, may that business prosper and flourish!
