This New Line Of Dolls Has Been Created For Children With Disabilities After Campaign

This New Line Of Dolls Has Been Created For Children With Disabilities After Campaign After a Facebook campaign called Toy Like Me was initiated calling for a more diverse representation of dolls for disabled children, Makies, a UK dollmaker responded by making the very thing that everyone was waiting for.

The company already has a system, much like build a bear, where you can choose the clothing, accessories, hair and skin colour for a doll – which is handy since we’ve never met a grown-up that looks like Barbie, let alone child – in order the achieve more of a likeness to yourself or anything you want. But now, due to demand, they are going to release a range of new accessories including a cane, hearing aids, wheelchairs, and they are working on a system whereby birth marks can be added in the same spot as where the potential owner in question has one. Thanks to 3D-printing, the process is now quicker and more efficient than ever before so they can meet supply and demand. The dolls will be in store soon and will retail at roughly £74. Toy Like Me is still crusading to get more toy manufactorers like Mattel and Playmobil to play ball and we’re sure their pleas will be heard.
