American Girl announced today a new doll: a doll without hair “for girls affected by cancer, alopecia, or any medical condition causing hair loss.”
The doll is beautiful (as are all their dolls), I’m just sad that we need a doll like this to begin with.
Thank you American Girl – this new doll will surely bring comfort to many little girls.
For more than a year, American Girl has been hard at work developing a doll without hair option for girls affected by cancer, alopecia, or any medical condition causing hair loss. Debuting today as part of the My American Girl® line, the new dolls provide even more possibilities for a girl to create a friend that’s as unique as she is. Due to special handling, orders for the new dolls will be taken exclusively through our contact center by calling 1-800-628-5145. These special dolls also will be included in our $100,000+ annual doll donation to the Children’s Hospital Association.
We recognize the passion and interest expressed for this product over the years and are excited to introduce this new option for girls! Learn more: http://bit.ly/bampbG
