I am very fortunate to have six healthy children. I could not imagine if one of them were to be diagnosed with cancer and my heart goes out to families enduring this battle.
MGA recently came out with hairless fashion dolls to support the fight against pediatric cancer and help instill inspiration, confidence and strength into young girls in their fight against cancer. The True Hope dolls include three Bratz dolls – Cloe, Yasmin and Cameron, and three Moxie Girlz dolls, Avery, Sophina and Jaxson. Each doll includes a couple fashionable outfits,a beaded bracelet and a cute hat.
We had an opportunity to review the Bratz Cloe True Hope doll.
Why would I give my non-cancer child a hairless doll?
Well, for one, it’s for a good cause. MGA will donate $1 for every “True Hope” Bratz and Moxie Girlz doll sold to distributors, to City of Hope for cancer research.
Two, it is the perfect opportunity to teach Kinsley that sometimes people may look different than her and that’s ok. She may not understand cancer but she can understand love and compassion.
So what did Kinsley think? She did ask me why the doll didn’t have hair. I told her sometimes kids get very sick and they don’t have hair until they get better. She kinda looked at me weird and started undressing the doll to change it’s clothing. She gave no thought to the doll having no hair but I hope if she sees a child with no hair, she can understand and be compassionate of their journey.
To me, the True Hope dolls are a reminder to be thankful and a symbol of hope to all that someday, we won’t have to have hairless dolls. But until then, way to go MGA!
