One of the newest toys to be released by Lottie, Mia the Wildlife Photographer doll, sports a camera, a red jacket, a matching pair of boots—and a cochlear implant.
The Mia doll was created in consultation with Toy Like Me, a non-profit organization that campaigns for diversity and better representation of disabilities. Toy Like Me was founded by former BBC journalist and children’s writer Rebecca Atkinson, who also wears a hearing aid. As she says: "When I was growing up in the 80s. I never saw any deaf characters in toys, books or on TV. When I became a mum myself, I decided it was time things changed."
Mis the Wildlife Photographer is a doll who has a passion for nature, wildlife and caring for the earth.
