Not every child looks the same. For kids with physical disabilities, it can be hard to relate closely to a doll that is very physically different. That’s why former social worker Amy Jandrisevits makes dolls that have bodies like their child caretakers. My Modern Met reports:
The meticulous work is seen by Jandrisevits as a direct reflection of the recipients themselves. “We need to see each child as a work of art—a masterpiece. While doll-making is an art form, the real canvas is the child him/herself. If we want to become a society that values differences and inclusivity, this is where we start. We start with something as simple as a doll—a human likeness.”
Jandrisevits has made about three hundred dolls so far. You can see examples of her work on Instagram.
