For children with mobility or dexterity issues, our products also include adaptive clothing that fits over doll bodies to make it easier for any child to play with them. We also provide braille books and activities for blind children so that they can enjoy the same kinds of educational experiences as their peers.
We believe that toys should be equally accessible by all children, regardless of ability. Our goal is to make toys that inspire imagination and creativity in every child, no matter what their individual needs are.
Our dolls are designed to be fully inclusive, and we make sure that everyone is represented. We strive to create dolls that reflect a wide variety of different characteristics, including skin color, hair texture, gender identity, and more.
We believe that everyone deserves a doll to call theirs. Every child should have a doll that looks like them and shares their unique interests—whether they enjoy skateboarding or rock climbing or just hanging out with their friends. We’re committed to making sure every child has access to this experience.
Our products are designed with the needs of special-needs children in mind. For example, we have dolls with no hair so that children who are undergoing chemotherapy or who experience alopecia can relate to the doll. We also have dolls with no facial features, so that children with autism can relate to and interact with them more easily.
I like to play with dolls instead of other toys. It relaxes me and helps me with my behavior. But it’s hard to find dolls that are made for people with autism because we’re picky about our dolls. Some of us don’t like to touch certain materials, or we want our dolls to be a certain shape, or we don’t like the hair on our dolls. We can’t always get what we need from regular doll. We know how important this kind of therapy is for us, so we want to make sure everyone can get access to it.
Many of the existing dolls available for children with special needs do not look or feel realistic. Our dolls are weighted and soft, and have the same weight and feel as a typical newborn. They also feature hair and skin tones that are representative of the general population.
We hope that these dolls will help children with special needs improve their social skills and better understand the world around them by providing them with a more intuitive play experience.
Dolls for Special Needs is a line of dolls made to represent children with various types of special needs. The dolls have prosthetics, hearing aids, and mobility devices, which are all removable to allow the child to play doctor.
