I am the parent of a special needs child and they want to connect to a toy that is like them. They feel different they know they are different but they are just as precious and special as any child. Having something to hold and play with like them is such a confidence boost. Someone should make boy dolls also. Boys love dolls and babies when they are little. If they had some that are like them they could play and be happy. My son is three and he loved to play with his sisters baby doll that she does not play with anymore. He loves that baby. If you have toys in a store that have special needs and these kids see them they are going to feel like they belong in this world. Everyone is not perfect and this imagine from Barbie needs to change. People are spending thousands trying to look like the doll. Good for this company to make these dolls.
