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!
