Kmart is now selling Down Syndrome dolls, which is absolutely HUGE for disability representation. The ‘Baby Charlie’ dolls are listed as coming soon on the Kmart website and will retail for $15 in Australia. This comes after Kmart announced a new line of inclusive dolls with disabilities or impairments. One of the dolls uses a wheelchair, while others are vision or hearing impaired.
“At Kmart we want to foster a culture that is inclusive, and a big part of that is reflecting the rich diversity in the community around us,” Head of Diversity and Inclusion at Kmart Group, Marcelle Harrison said. “We’ve had so much positive feedback from the community, we’ve even had therapy services let us know they are using our dolls in their waiting room.”
Let’s hope this makes it to America soon!
We are not accepting any durable medical goods at this time since it’s difficult to clean them. But we are distributing them. Explain your needs and our trained staff may know the perfect item that will help you!
