About Special Dolls
Special Dolls was created by a 13 year old girl, Sydney Satalino. She set out to make a difference in the world of dolls. Sydney has had Asperger's syndrome since she was 1 and type 1 diabetes since she was 10, and she wanted a doll like her and many other kids who deal with disabilities. Special Dolls was born at a sleepover in 2014 when Sydney thought, "What if I stopped dreaming about dolls with disabilities and made them myself?" After three years, Special Dolls is finally coming to life. Over 15 percent of American children have a disability, and it's about time the doll market oversaturated with dolls depicting children without disabilities finally gave spotlight to represent the kids who do so. We are happy to create unique dolls that you can not find anywhere else.
