28 sec read

The world is much more inclusive now than it ever has before, with differences in gender, race, age, and disability largely no longer serious issues.

However, there is still an ideal that toy-makers seem to think we should aspire to be. Dolls, for example, are usually white, healthy, slim, and pretty, even though that doesn’t describe most people in the world.

This video features a plea from Melissa Shang, a 10-year-old girl who suffers from a form of muscular dystrophy. She loves the American Girl range of dolls, but wishes Mattel would add a girl with a disability to the product line.

In order to publicize this worthy cause Melissa has created a petition seeking to make the 2015 Girl Of The Year American Girl doll one with a disability.
