World’s First Line Of Dolls With Disabilities

  • JWB Post
  •  July 4, 2015

A community called #ToyLikeMe is calling on the toy industry for positive disability representation and is created by parents of children with disabilities.

Their mission is to prove that disability is a part of life and toys showcasing it shouldn’t be exuded from toy industry.1 (2)

We have played with perfectly-shaped, fair-colored Barbies, chubby & plumpy teddy bears all throughout our lives. These parents feel that the little ones must also play with toys showing disabilities in order to get accustomed with the lives of people with disabilities, hence not forming any stereotype about body-image and beauty.

We second them.1 (1)

‘Toy Like Me’ doesn’t sell dolls. This community has pictures of dolls with disabilities made by people from all over the world. Have a look:
