Most dolls these days come in a variety of shapes and sizes, with different skin, hair and eye colors. You can buy clothes for them and even accessories; but Diverse Families is doing it differently. Their dolls are handmade plush dolls and they are on a mission to do good in every sense of the meaning.
You can order a customized “Me to a T” doll for $89 which would look similar to the doll made for my daughter Kendall. We had her dolly customized with hearing aids to celebrate her hearing loss. The doll is very well-made and durable.
These days, getting Kendall to wear her hearing aids is a huge challenge, but we want her to know that her mild to moderate hearing loss does not define her. She will get along just fine with or without her hearing aids and her dolly will be there with her.
If you would like to see if Diverse Families carries a Readymade Doll that looks similar to you, this is a cheaper option. You can get a readymade doll for $49, which come in a variety of colors, genders, ages, etc.
Something that I LOVE about the Diverse Families online shop is that they don’t assign races to their dolls. In real life, a dark-skinned person isn’t necessarily African-American, and a light-skinned person may not call themselves “white.” With so many mixed-race people in the world, they felt it was important to leave the race label off of their dolls.
The Diverse Families concept is simple – humans are different; celebrate the differences! Period.
