www.inthedollworld.com/creators In The Doll World, doll podcast and doll YouTube channel, shares an inspirational and passionate interview with Amy Jandrisevits, doll creator and founder of A Doll Like Me. Join us as we talk about the amazing cloth dolls that Amy creates for children with limb differences, birthmarks, facial anomalies, and albinism and so many more and how truly important it is for these children to be represented in a doll ...."because everyone deserves to look into the sweet face of a doll and see their own".
Amy talks about her journey from a child who helped he mother find dolls for underrepresented children, to becoming a social worker who worked with children with cancer. She was also a passionate doll collector and had created a few bald dolls for chemotherapy patients. She noticed how those dolls could help a child get through tough times and find a way to connect and nurture themselves when the dolls looked like the children.
Amy shares many stories about how her dolls came to be, one touching story was the true catalyst to creating A Doll Like Me, when a friend of a friend saw a doll that looked like her daughter, but the friend's daughter's leg had just been amputated and she asked Amy if she could make a doll that looked like her daughter with the amputated leg. That led to the doll being posted on social media and within 2 months she had over 200 orders and the rest, as they say, is Doll Herstory.
Every doll makes a difference; and, every doll is created and hand sewn with love.
