We Remove Make-Up From Hollywood And Disney Dolls To Turn Them Into Inspiring Real-Life Women

once I came across Sonja Singh’s Tree Change Dolls™, the conflict of a certain distinct dolls becoming extremely sexualized, i needed to explore additional the concept that toys or playthings could have a direct effect on one’s identity.

Through could work in Child’s Own Studio, i’m familiar with the idea that toys can become a source of convenience, pleasure and definition for a kid (as well as grownups). The dolls we get in doll shops these days in many cases are licenced Disney™ characters or perhaps the heroines of Hollywood blockbuster films that capitalize on the pull of fantasy, fictional figures to young customers. But there are real-life individuals who are heroes also, with inspiring tales of courage, cleverness, energy and uniqueness.  Could kiddies find out about and get influenced by them through toys?

In this project, I repainted and reclothed the manufactured dolls to the likeness of genuine, impressive women – as young girls. As a parent, I’d love for my child to try out with a young J.K. Rowling or Malala and now have conversations about all of them. What inspiring individual do you need to see as a doll?
