Meet Noah our beloved baby boy. Just when you think you know what love is, this little baby looks up at you with his twinkling brown almond eyes and smiles. Indeed, he is truly unique and one of a kind. Have you noticed the sandal gap between the larger toe and the second toe? Plus, a transverse palmar crease across both palms and a bend in the upper knuckle of his pinky fingers. He also has top ear folds, flat facial features, a slightly smaller head, and shorter limbs—all of these are what make him lovable and adorably special.
Noah is lovingly sculpted by world-renowned doll artist Lauren Faith Jaimes, this handsome baby is 21” from head to toe crafted from our SoftTouch™ Vinyl that has a light baby powder scent and a realistic feel. Welcome home precious Noah today!
