Therapy Dolls

Handmade therapy dolls, dolls just for fun….and other stuff.

I would like to introduce to everyone the doll that started it all, Charlene.  She’s a sweet and special little girl adopted by the inner child of a special friend. Once I made Charlene I realized others might benefit from a therapy doll which might resemble their inner child. This is how Charlene Dolls came to be born, a friend in need became a sewing adventure. Please see the Charlene Doll host page by clicking this link.

Custom Order Handmade DollsNOTE: Custom orders are running three to four weeks. I only make stuffed dolls in styles seen below. I no longer create bears. I do not have the ability to create a doll that looks and feels like a newborn. It is also beyond my creative control to make for you a steampunk or emo doll. I’m really sorry, too, because I’ve been asked several times. It’s just not in my skill set.

You can see close up views, actual sizes and details of art shown here by visiting my Etsy shop. You do not need an Etsy account to purchase crafts or originals, just a verified PayPal account.

To protect the requested privacy of the person on their healing path, some inner child and therapy dolls are not shown in the gallery.

    Mine are on here. I love my dolls. Love them 10000000000000 times over. Like Ella, one of my 7 year old students says “I love you 1099 times!”

    Hi, are you still making the dolls & bears? If so, could you email me some info about prices. I have too many “inner kids” to count lol but they ran across this page and a few are really wanting a doll and a bear. Thanks for any info.

No need to feel nervous, comment if you'd like.
