Our new Joyk Empathy Doll Lilly is a lovable newborn who is designed to encourage intense eye contact. Just like with real newborns, her head needs to be supported when lifting and carrying. Her body is pleasantly soft and filled with different materials. Her very realistic body language helps to awaken the caring and nurturing instincts in older people with dementia. These babies are designed with great attention to detail and have a belly button and realistically reproduced sexual characteristics. The pretty outfits are easy to put on and take off.

Made from soft-filled fabric and with removable clothes, her appealing eyes are designed to have constant eye contact for a strong emotional bond. Her facial features have a realistic little nose and shaped mouth too.
