Good news! Selma's Dolls has captured the attention of the general public. Here are what people are saying about our dolls.
Shopping for kids—your own, or those little friends and relatives—can be a challenge. We may not always know what the kids already have and love to play with. We might be unsure of what the parents actually want to add to their home. Luckily for you, we’ve worked hard to put together a list of gifts for kids that’s diverse, affordable, and fun.
Working moms Valerie Alva-Ruiz and Courtney Stillwagon created "Selma's Dolls" to celebrate diversity of religion, culture and physical and mental disabilities.
When my kids were young, and they saw someone that didn’t look like them, they would start to stare. Of course, I would tell them to look away, feeling a little awkward, and not knowing exactly how to handle the situation. Once they were in school, I loved that they were put into classrooms with others that they might consider “different.” We should all teach our kids to accept anyone that is different than us.

Two Dunwoody mothers and entrepreneurs are setting out to help young children learn and love differences with Selma’s Dolls, a collection of soft ragdolls and informative books. The debut collection of Selma’s Dolls features ragdolls Annie, Lola and Ameena. The dolls are made for children ages two and older as a way to introduce the beauty of differences through play.
Selma’s Dolls are adorable ragdolls created by Valerie Alva-Ruiz in partnership with fellow mom Courtney Stillwagon to mirror the beauty within every religion, culture and physical and mental disability.
Local moms Valerie Alva-Ruiz and Courtney Stillwagon recently launched Selma’s Dolls, after not being able to find the diversity of religion, culture and physical and mental disabilities in dolls for their daughters. Each doll comes with a book, helping to further celebrate and explain differences.
