    Dolls with a special mission

    The woman started creating dolls for handicapped children as well as those with rare medical conditions. The toys look like their young owners. Some of them have got artificial legs, others have got various scars. Thanks to these dolls the children do not feel like they aren't much different from the rest of the world. Moreover, they help them understand the world better, handle stress and get on with their peers. The kids win far more self-confidence and realize that they are special.
