Looking For A Special Doll For The Holidays?
The holiday season is just around the corner, and it's time to start making your wish lists! There's one doll, however, that you may REALLY love:
I started Special Dolls last year so disabled children could find a doll that looked just like them and non-disabled children could learn about what it's like to have a disability. I suffer from autism, diabetes and scoliosis, so I know all too well how hard it is for someone to understand you when you have a disability and the struggle to find representation in not just dolls, but every type of media. This is why I always find a way to integrate characters with both visible and invisible disabilities in most of my AGSM movies, but I turned that desire into a real doll once I started Special Dolls!
Our first doll, Elliana, is a passionate girl who loves computer science, robotics and coding. Her e-book, Elliana and The Big Race, is about how she turns her limb difference into an ability when she signs up for a robotics race. The doll comes with a removable prosthetic arm with the Special Dolls logo on it.
You can buy Elliana online at special-dolls.com for $69. Please click here and support my company so I can make more dolls and represent more types of disabilities! If you can't buy a doll now, please add Elliana to your holiday wish list!
