Inclusive Dolls Outfitted with Hearing Aid, Walking Cane, and Vascular Birthmark
Makies is expanding its accessory range to make room for more diverse 3D-printed dolls—and is taking suggestions
In honor of the Toy Like Me campaign, which encourages greater diversity in the toy box and calls for toys that reflect children in more inclusive ways, British-based toy developer Makies is expanding its range of doll accessories to include hearing aids, walking canes, and bespoke facial characteristics.
Toy Like Me’s Facebook page features toy ‘makeovers’ that offer a positive representation of disability. The popularity of this campaign shows that many people are eager for a more diverse range of toys that reflect the children playing with them.
