TOYS THAT INSPIRED US #02

Owie Dolls

Owie Dolls are adorable fabric toys designed primarily for play; but as is the case with all toys featured here, our fabric friends serve a secondary purpose.  Accompanying each doll is a set of medical bandages that kids can use to “heal” their dolls.

Unlike other more traditional doll sets, Owie Dolls are created for all kids who love to play doctor, regardless of gender constructs. These dolls have the added benefit of facilitating communication between toddlers and parents, particularly in the case of sick or hurt children who are yet unable to express themselves through words. For parents who have to broach difficult topics, Owie Dolls can assist in the explanation of illness and disease.

Owie Dolls are created by Lorraine LiEr Teigland. For purchasing information, visit ikatbag
