Pittsburgh, PA. - A mother's belief that every child deserves a doll has led her to create her own.

That's because she found kids with down syndrome and other disabilities, were finding themselves out of the social loop.

Connie Feda's 13-year-old daughter Hannah has down syndrome.

Feda says when Hannah was flipping through a toy catalog, she noticed there were dolls to resemble her sister, but none that looked like her.

That's why Feda designed what she calls Dolls for Downs.
She says it has the physical characteristics of someone with Down Syndrome and it can be used as therapy tool.

There are five doll versions available for pre-order, which you can find on their website.
