Dolls have been the source of many controversies over the years. Whether it’s the misrepresentation of the female body in Barbie and Sindy, or anatomically correct models that has people spitting their proverbial dummies, the industry’s never far from a minor temper-tantrum.
But UK toy-manufacturer Makies is taking advantage of the latest 3D printing technology to create a range of customisable dolls that represent a wider mix of races, body-types and abilities. (Great spot, Julie.) The current range includes dolls with white canes, birthmarks and hearing aids, with more on the way.
Finally kids can feel less pressured into being a #humanlikethem and grab themselves a #toylikeme instead.
