American Girl has recently announced that they will begin producing a bald doll to be supportive of child cancer patients who have lost their hair due to chemotherapy.
One girl, Kayla Brooks, of Tennessee, has worked tirelessly to get Barbie, American Girl, Disney and others to produce the bald dolls. See the story of Kayla and her efforts in this story by Lori Mitchell from WKRN tv below.
You can special order the American Girl doll by calling 1-800-628-5145, or if you prefer you can send one of your collection back to the factory to have a bald head put on your doll. There are five different skin tones available for $44. You can do this by sending your doll off to American Girl’s “Doll Hospital“.
