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. If you desire to purchase straight from this website, I will send you a PayPal invoice. 

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

  • First and foremost, contact me via email to make certain reservations are available. I make one doll at a time. I’m not accepting orders for dolls at this time. 
  • Second,  copy paste the below information in an email and fill out according to your preferences. Keep in mind the * means there is an extra charge. No hidden fees.

  3. 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.
