Selma's Dolls

 

Selma’s Dolls formed when two moms realized a conversation needed to be started with their young children about accepting and learning from people of all different backgrounds, races, cultures and religions. The first collection of ragdolls includes a Muslim friend, Mexican-American friend and a friend with Down syndrome. Our goal is to help parents and caretakers teach little ones about differences through a doll that may, or may not, look like your child – it’s about teaching that differences are beautiful and friendships can be made regardless. Each doll comes with an illustrated storybook and conversation starters.

We hope that by bringing one of our dolls into your home, you can start a conversation around acceptance and friendship.

Lola + Book

Lola is made with a variety of kid-friendly materials which include Jersey Knit Fabric, Tricot, and Soft Boa. And she’s easy to spot clean. Lola is 12.8 inches tall and lightweight. Her arms, legs, and tush are sown together in a way that makes her fun and easy to hold and also able to sit upright by your side. Every doll purchased comes with the same illustrated storybook, “First Day of School.” The book also includes “conversation starters” so parents can talk to their kids about culture, religion and physical and mental disabilities without having to be experts. Lola and the rest of the Selma’s Dolls collection is designed for kids ages 2 and up. Lola wears a Mexican-inspired print that was created uniquely for her.  In each doll’s clothing print, you can find a nod to the olive branch which is a universal symbol of “peace” and part of the Selma’s Dolls logo.
