The world’s first line of dolls with disabilities has already flown off the shelves

British toymaker Makies has released a line of dolls with disabilities. They were inspired by a social media campaign, Toy Like Me. The campaign encouraged parents of children with various disabilities to customise their toys, making them look more like real people. The results were then posted online.


People from all over the world shared photos of their homemade realistic dolls, and soon the Toy Like Me campaign went viral. Now it was up to toy companies to support the trend and create an official line of natural-looking, customisable dolls so that disabled kids could have a toy like them.

Photos kept coming in, demonstrating creativity and the great strides parents made to create toys which their children could actually relate to.

Following the success of the Toy Like Me campaign, Makies released a new line of dolls, giving it the same name.
