Mariana's starfish-inspired ensemble

To make Mariana even more enchanting, our doll designer Carly dressed her in a delightful blue polka-dotted footed onesie. Her onesie features blue ruffles and an adorable diaper flap adorned with blue starfish prints and ruffles, allowing for quick and easy diaper changes. Completing her ensemble is a charming blue bow that perfectly accentuates her dark curls.

Mariana also comes with a magnetic pacifier, a white fleece blanket with starfish embroidery, and a starfish plushie friend that she holds dear. ⭐ This soft and huggable plush toy adds an extra touch of fun to Mariana's playful spirit.

Meet the Artist Behind Mariana

Jannie de Lange

Jannie’s passions for dolls started during a childhood visit to a doll show that exposed her to the world of hand sculpted dolls. On her return, she immediately enrolled in a sculpting class and hasn’t looked back since! Sculpting her own dolls since 1994, Jannie quickly developed her own style and has been nominated for an array of awards, including the Vinyl-doll Nischi at Paradise Galleries for the Dolls Award of Excellence in 2010.
