These little cuties are wearing outfits made out of Autism Awareness puzzle fabric. They're 13" (32cm) tall and have button eyes and a stitched faces. Their bodies are made from 100% cotton muslin, and you'll get your choice of hair color...red, brown, blond or black.
I’m making these dolls to celebrate my daughter, Samantha. She was diagnosed with autism in Nov. 2010. To read about our journey please visit my blog http://asugarandspicelife.blogspot.com/
Let me know if you’d like an Autism Awareness doll made in another skin color (autism does not discriminate!) or if you'd like a different hair color. I can also customize the tag. I’d be very happy to make a custom doll for you.
Please note that Sugar & Spice dolls are collectibles. They have small parts which may pose a choking hazard for children under 3.
“Autism is a complex developmental disability that typically appears during the first three years of life and is the result of a neurological disorder that affects the normal functioning of the brain, impacting development in the areas of social interaction and communication skills. Both children and adults with autism typically show difficulties in verbal and non-verbal communication, social interactions, and leisure or play activities. Autism is a spectrum disorder and it affects each individual differently and at varying degrees.”
“Today, it is estimated that one in every 110 children is diagnosed with autism, making it more common than childhood cancer, juvenile diabetes and pediatric AIDS combined.”
