Cuddoll's are Sustainable and Organic Toys That Will Last a Lifetime
There is something so special about choosing a child’s first ‘stuffed animal’; it’s something that they hold on to like a security blanket, it’s their best friend, and something they’ll remember for the rest of their lives. You want that gift to be memorable and genuinely made with love, because you’re giving it with love.
When I came across Cuddoll’s I couldn’t believe how adorable they were. They’re cute and cuddly friends that I actually wanted for myself as an adult! Cuddoll’s aren’t your average ‘stuffed animal’, there’s something beautiful about their aesthetic that makes you want to display them in your home. What’s even more amazing is that they’re sustainable and produced by mothers, so you know who’s touched this before your child has.

1 DOLL = DREAMS COME TRUE
Cuddolls are hand knitted by women who need emotional and financial support to start over and live a healthy life. We are healing and supporting these amazing, passionate moms by putting their creativity to work making unique, handmade crafts in a safe and supporting environment.
The inspiration for our cuddly enterprise was the birth of Begum’s daughter, Myra and the birth of Didem’s nephew Efe, where our only two baby doll names are inspired by their births that were only 4 months apart ( Efe is the baby brother of Myra’s)
We wanted to give them something unique. An heirloom doll that is safe, cuddly and that would stay with them for the rest of their lives, just like our heirloom dolls from our childhood. They can, of course, have ours, which we still have on our beds (do not laugh!) but still. We were in search of creating new memories for them…We searched and searched, but we were unable to find what we were looking for, and guess what? We decided to take matters into our own hands and design the product ourselves!It was also important for us to make sure we would contribute to society and give something back. And the answer came from Begum’s mom, who after a difficult divorce, had spent a long time feeling lonely and isolated, and was also keen to help other women in the same situation.
Together, we partnered up with an organization to create a working environment for women who need emotional and financial support to start over and live a healthy life. We built several workshop studios within this organization in Turkey to teach these women how to fish! We have an open-door policy. From beginners to experienced handcrafters, they are all welcome to join our team to create, share, and heal! We are now healing and supporting these amazing, passionate moms by putting their creativity to work making unique, handmade crafts in a safe and supporting environment. Filiz is also one of them… Making her granddaughter’s first doll was priceless for Filiz, Begum’s mom.
And just like that, Cuddoll was born.
Each toy is handcrafted by women who are developing self-esteem as they feel financially comfortable. Cuddoll is produced by mothers who share their hearts, their dreams, and their passions with your dolls. That’s why each of them is unique!
