Treasured: “Rosa” & “Pomar”
These one-of-a-kind cloth dolls are by Portuguese designer Rosa Pomar. I gifted my son with these last year hoping he would take to them over those plastic licensed characters that make the toy economy go round. No luck, but he does appreciate them and I get a small thrill each time he calls the left doll “Pomar” and the cupid one “Rosa.” On the spot for a name? Just name them after the dollmaker. Hasbro is not too shabby in a pinch, if you think about it.
Also, Rosa Pomar creates a special collection for Nurseryworks, color coordinating each creation to the latest season’s bedding collection. Nice idea.
I heart these collectible dolls. The end.
