Michael ~ a Little Boy Doll from HABA

Michael is one of a large range of really very cute soft dolls from Haba.



The packaging is great because there is only 1 fastener to cut and the doll can be removed.


He is 30cm tall, has removable clothes and shoes, chenille hair and a very sweet face. His entire body is soft and he can be hand washed in hot water.

Michel from Haba

He retails at around £25 and is suitable for 18 months and over.



We think he is really nice, and he has been everywhere with us since we took him out of the box.



I think the age range is right as a smaller child might be tempted to chew his hair. It is not a cheap doll, but it is really well made and I think would last a child for a lifetime. My sons love him and the 3 year old has carried him everywhere since he got him. For these reasons I think he does offer good value and I would heartily recommend him. 5/5

  1. This looks like such a lovely doll. I've always been a little sad that my boy doesn't have any interest in them. I'm hoping my girl will.

    1. 2 of my boys have played with dolls, this is extra nice because it isn't your traditional doll so no-one has made any negative comments to him or me about it, whereas you get some people tutting when they carry plastic dolls and it puts them off.

  2. Your boys are brilliant in the end :) One can not have a better indication of how unisex this doll is! Awesome!
