A child may long to meet or play with others who look like they do, but this is not always possible. These dolls are offered as a supplement to help a special needs child in their journey.
East Greenwich, RI (PRWEB) January 11, 2006
Sew Dolling™, LLC announces the successful launch of a new line of unique vinyl dolls used in play therapy that celebrates the differences and the challenges of special needs children. The limited-edition Sew Able vinyl dolls include nine with above-the-knee or below-the-knee amputations and three dolls without hair.
Several years in the making, these dolls for special needs children were produced and carefully designed to look as real and natural as possible. “We believe the expense put into the doll is well worth it if it can help even one child, through play therapy, feel accepted,” states Susan Svendsen, owner of Sew Dolling™, LLC. “This is also a great way to help other children who have friends, classmates, or siblings with disabilities understand that we are all different, special and unique!”
The dolls with prosthetic legs have been specially fitted and include a pair of crutches. These dolls can stand with the crutches and can also be positioned to stand without. A full line of physical therapy accessories is available, including wheelchairs, parallel bars, mats and therapy balls, allowing the child’s doll to progress along with their owner. The dolls without hair come with a wig and a bandana, slouch hat or baseball cap.
“Play therapy is extremely important to help children build their sense of self worth,” adds Svendsen. “A child may long to meet or play with others who look like they do, but this is not always possible. These dolls are offered as a supplement to help a special needs child in their journey.”
These highly collectible limited-edition dolls have small production runs with some limited to just 172 in the edition. A portion of each sale is donated to hospitals that help special needs children. To purchase, visit Sew Dolling™, LLC on the web at http://www.sew-dolling.com.
