Above Knee and Below Knee
Limited First Edition
1st Vinyl Play Therapy Doll of it's Kind
U.S. and International
What a wonderful gift to give a child to let them know how
special they really are. Isn't it time there was a doll out there like
this? Too many toy manufacturers have decided this type of doll was far
too expensive to produce for the profit they would make. This is true as
this doll is not your typical vinyl doll. Each of the
play therapy dolls with
prosthetic legs have been specially fitted with both an above knee and below
knee prosthesis and have been carefully designed to look as real and natural as
possible without jeopardizing the safety or play factor.
"This is how I put my leg on"
dolls with prostheses all have an above the knee and
below the knee amputation. The dolls without hair will include
a wig and a hat to wear if they choose. All of the play
therapy dolls will
include crutches in their box as well as a teddy bear.
The faces were delicately hand-painted and given cute little dimples
in their cheeks. Because the cost to produce these dolls was
high, they are limited in number. This will make them
highly collectible ~ some have only 172 in their edition. We believe
the expense put into the doll is well worth it if it can help one
child feel accepted!
This is also a great way to help other children who have
friends, classmates, or siblings with disabilities to understand that we are all
different, special and unique!
Doctors have the major role in improving the physical
well-being of the child. Family and Psychological support and play therapy
extremely important to help the child build their sense of self worth.
They may long to see other children who look like they do but this is not always
possible. These dolls are offered as a supplement to help them in their
The name "Sew ABLE®" was chosen because the term "disabled"
often separates children from their friends at a time when they NEED to feel
accepted and "able." They are all too aware of the things they feel they
cannot do, it's very important for them to believe in the things that they can
do. We hope you enjoy them! We have had a fun and often worrisome
years designing these to be ready ONE DAY! That day has finally arrived!
We believe God has had a hand in this all along!
I would like to thank all the people who have helped us in
the process. The design of the prosthetics was molded by a children's orthotics and prosthetics specialist (on the other side of the country) who did not even know
who I was when he offered to help. Thank you Jon Batzdorff, CPO. The beautiful
box design was graciously given by a wonderful Christian man and business owner.
Thank you Mark Schraer! The
inside of the box design was made by my mother and me on the floor of our
sewing room. Thanks Mom! The patience and hard work in a
country half a world away was organized by a very special and talented
doll maker. Thank you Penny!! And lastly, I cannot forget my
father who has listened to all my ideas and really understood why this
doll was important. Without the help of all of these people, none of
this would have ever been possible.
most of all to God!

Note - These limited edition dolls are very specialized and
difficult to produce and therefore more complex than other
18" dolls on the
market. They can stand with crutches and most of the time they can
even stand without crutches. By helping them learn to balance, you can
teach them how to stand on their own. Don't forget to teach them how
to put their legs on tight. There are instructions on the "Sew
Able® Dolls™" webpage and also in the cool box they will come in.
