Kids with disabilities finally get dolls with disabilities

There’s a campaign on social media called #toylikeme to get toy makers to make dolls with disabilities.

British company Makie answered that call and started producing dolls with hearing aids, canes, glasses and facial birthmarks. The response has been so positive, Makie has received hundreds of suggestions and is now deciding what other inclusive dolls to make.

The #toylikeme campaign also calls on Lego and Mattel to do the same.

Kudos to Makie!
