American Girl Makes Dolls For Children With Alopecia!!!

American Girl is doing some amazing things with their dolls these days.

Remember the little girl who was given an American Girl Doll with a prosthetic leg just like her? It’s a truly touching story that will give you chills. All this time, we’ve been thinking that her doll was just a special occasion. Well, it wasn’t just a fluke.

Apparently American Girl does this stuff all the time. You just have to call their customer service and ask for it!

My cousin’s little girl has Alopecia. Most people with Alopecia get a few bald spots. However, there is a small percentage that go completely bald. My cousin’s daughter is one of those few. She is 8-years (I think) and is completely bald. So her Mom ordered her an American Girl Doll that is…drum roll please…completely bald!!!

This is awesome! I think I might be more excited about her doll that she will be when her mom surprises her with it on her birthday!

By the way, I also did a little digging and American Girl has had a bald doll since 2012! It originally started for little girls with cancer or leukemia. And then there was this story from the Today Show, where a mom found the dolls on display at American Girl!!!

Nice job American Girl! Keep up the great work!
