One Dear World creates a range of inclusive dolls started by a London mother Winnie Mak, who hopes to spark conversation around the different disabilities. The heartwarming dolls were launched when Winnie and her husband Rafael Tselikas were shocked by the lack of diverse representation in toys. Their mixed ethnicity son was surrounded by children of many different ethnicities, genders, and more, and the couple thought there was more they could do on their end to drive representation.
The cuddly toys started off highlighting multiculturalism before expanding to representing different conditions as well. One Dear World now has 'Doll Emily for Disability Awareness,' 'Doll Will for Autism Awareness, ' Doll Fei for Eliminating Avoidable Blindness,' 'Doll Daniel for Down Syndrome Awareness,' ' Doll Saroj for Supporting Deaf Children,' and ' Doll Claire for Mental Health Awareness.' Each doll also comes with a personality description, what they support, and their role model.
