Finally, the Yermit everyone has been waiting for: The Yermit waldof Doll:
Yermit waldorf doll
I know what you’re saying: That doll look like all the other Yermits.
Ya, well, see, I looked up “waldorf doll” in the interwebs, and here’s what I found in wikipedia:
Traditional Waldorf dolls are made from cotton interlock knit fabric and wool stuffing. They are often entirely natural. Typically the trademark long hair of a Waldorf doll is made of mohair or boucle. Some doll makers use alternative hair material such as wool, rayon, and cotton. The facial features of a Waldorf doll vary with the maker. Most Waldorf dolls have small suggestions of noses, their eye and mouth colors are generally varied with each doll.
The bolding is mine. (But please don’t mention that the Yermits might not have “small suggestions of noses” because they’re kind of sensitive on that point.)
Oh hey, here’s a great article about about Waldorf dolls and doll makers. Yup that’s me. Oh but wait, some people in the comments of that article are disagreeing. Colour me shocked.
So, I know what you’re wondering now: When is my child ready for the Yermit waldorf doll?
Well let’s see. According to waldorf mythology, a child is ready to READ when they can reach their right arm over their head and touch their left ear. (I know, I thought it was a joke too the first time I heard it, but go ahead, google it)
It stands to reason that a child is ready for a Yermit waldorf doll when they can grab the Yermit’s left leg and swing it over their right shoulder (says one helpful family member.) (Or when they can change the batteries in the TV remote, says another of my helpful family members.)
No seriously people. My readers need an answer, I tell my helpful family members.
Develop a REAL waldorf doll, everyone says. You mean, I say, a fabric doll with variable facial features and alternate hair material?
Oh, here are some more Yermit waldorf dolls. They come with dogs. And their hats comes off and your children can put them back on and this teaches the children how to work their fingers better so they can change the battery in the TV remote more easily. (I know what you’re thinking…)

EDIT: One of my family members just walked by as I was surfing waldorf dolls on pintrest and said, “Those are butt-ugly creepy-ass dolls”. Harsh. But I can’t say I disagree.
