For the past five years, The Doll For All has been developing an 18” multi-jointed doll that can be altered for whatever disability a child has.
"From the start, we worked with Siskin Children’s Institute, Children’s Hospital at Erlanger and have consulted with Signal Centers, Orange Grove and other organizations serving the disability community here in Chattanooga," said Marsha Roberts, president. "The fact that our dolls move so much like a child will be of great value to pediatric physical and occupational therapists, child life specialists and other professionals working with these children.
"We were determined to have our dolls "Made in America" and spent the last several years figuring out how, and we did.
We’ll have the only 18” dolls made in the U.S.A. And they’ll be made right here in Chattanooga.
"We’ve launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise the funds to get started producing dolls for these special kids who have never had a doll that looks like they do."
