"Our last name is Ringeisen. When our children were born people would say: "Awww... another cute little Ringolino!" So when I was searching for a name that would fit my dolls, which took me over 5 years, I finally decided on Ringalina. Ringolino sounds a little too "tough" for the soft and whimsical dolls I create so I had to change it a little."
Waldorf inspired Ringalina Dolls are nurturing for your child. The appearance of the Waldorf doll is very simple, with very little to no facial expression which allows the child to engage in imaginative and creative play.
The doll's head is sewn into a soft stuffed "pillow" body that is made of either bamboo/cotton velour or cotton velour. Skin fabric choices are cotton or wool skin.
with attached arms, but torso and legs are in one piece. Skin fabric choices are cotton or wool skin.
with attached, slightly bend arms and attached legs, which creates a more defined bottom and flexible legs. Skin fabric choices are cotton or wool skin.
arms and legs are bend more in a baby like posture. Skin fabric choices are cotton or wool skin.

A wooden rod is installed inside the head and tightly secured. It is used to hold onto and sit on top. One leg on the left and one leg on the right and the child is ready to ride at its own pace.
