Budding Ballerinas – Perfect Pink Dolls Cot For Newborn Baby Doll By Ambel Crafts


Look no further, the perfect present for every young Prima Ballerina!

The Budding Ballerinas Wooden Dolls Cot is a handcrafted toy of exceptional quality, made from reclaimed hardwood furniture using traditional carpentry methods and sewn with skill, it is a toy that is built to last. 

The wooden rockers and canopy allude to vintage cots of old, but the addition of beautiful contemporary fabrics give a modern look. The cots are lavishly furnished with an old-school hand-tufted mattress, flat sheet, duvet, duvet cover, pillow, pillowcase, lined cot skirt, triple-layered tasseled chiffon canopy and canopy bow. 

The adorable ballet dancers twirl their way around the cot in colourful tutus.  Pink daisy trim on the duvet cover, pillowcase and cot skirt complement the fabric and pink ribbon skirt band.   The pastel-tasselled, triple-layered fuschia chiffon canopy and striking canopy bow add to the enduring appeal of this stunning cot. 

Each cot comes with it’s own uniquely numbered Certificate of Ownership detailing when the cot was made, the former life of the reclaimed wood (table, tv stand – it really could be anything), the chosen fabric theme and, most importantly, gives space to add who has owned it – from the first proud owner, to the next and the next…

Standing at approximately 80cm tall it is perfectly proportioned for children’s play.

Are you tired of cheap, flimsy, imported and disposable toys ultimately destined for landfill?

Are you concerned about how much waste we produce, and keen to be more environmentally conscious?

Do you remember when toys were loved, treasured and passed down through the generations?


You could be the founder of a new family heirloom; a present for a much loved child, gifting them with a toy to enjoy and cherish and then pass on to their own children in the years to come.  The Budding Ballerinas crib is a timeless toy, a perfect addition to any child’s bedroom or playroom.  At approximately 80cm tall x 52cm length x 40cm width it is a dolly’s dream bed!

All fabrics and trims are new and sourced from UK companies.  The fabrics are selected for their enduring appeal, rather than today’s passing fad.   All elements are completely handmade and are all removable, allowing for versatility in look and play.

Ambel Rocking Dolls Cots are made using reclaimed hardwoods sourced from old outdated furniture and offcuts from larger projects. Giving a new life to wood that otherwise might be destined for burning or landfill.   The reclaimed wood is planed back to reveal its natural beauty and then lovingly handcrafted using traditional mortise and tenon and dowelled joints.  The cot is hand-finished in two coats of child-friendly oil-wax that accentuates the natural beauty of the wood, creating a unique and individual cot.

Producing the cots entirely by hand is time intensive (approximately 3 days per cot!), but the result is a unique and timeless toy, lovingly made with the highest quality of craftsmanship and attention to detail.   

A toy created for longevity creates its own history.  It is important that future generations know the origins of the cot and who has owned it before.  With this in mind, each cot comes with its own Certificate of Ownership.  The Certificate details when the cot was made, the former life of the reclaimed wood (table, tv stand, worktop – it really could be anything!), the chosen fabric theme and, most importantly, who has owned it – from the first owner, to the next and the next… 

The cot comes with full instructions. You will need a cross-head screwdriver to attach the canopy support, screws are supplied (takes less than a minute!).  Cots are currently available in Beech and Oak although this may vary depending on the wood we are able to source and select.   There are six different fabric themes to choose from.  Delivery is included in the price.

Now for the legal bit…

  • Cots are suitable for 3+ years.
  • As with all toys sold in the UK the cots are tested and UKCA marked (sadly this does mean that I am unable to sell to Northern Ireland or outside mainland UK).
  • The fabric elements of the cot are either sponge clean or handwash only (care instructions are provided with the cot).
  • The cot contains a magnet.
  • Due to the handmade nature of the cot, all dimensions are approximate.
  • Sorry, any toys or dolls included in the pictures are not included!

For your complete piece of mind, if – in the very unlikely event – you are not delighted with your cot you can return it within 14 days unused and in its original packaging for a full refund.
