Little ones are handmade cloth dolls that are made to look like the child who cares for them.
Often a magical story about where the Little One came from is told before they passed to the care of a child. The child will then dutifully care for their Little One, taking them wherever they go. Often a teacher or parent will help the child to sew a small felt bag for the little one to be carried in. In caring so lovingly for their Little One, children learn about greater self-love and care, and have a comforting friend with them wherever they go.
