keathe kruse logoMy First Doll by Kaethe Kruse. Kaethe Kruse was the pioneer in German doll making. Her Factory was established in 1911, the same time the Steiff Company was in full swing developing jointed Teddy Bears. Kaethe Kruse dolls are made by hand and are hand painted on to wonderful, natural material. Her original dolls are highly collectible. We have started to stock her doll range for children from birth. We adore her realistic design and love the quality. The attention to detail is just beautiful.
