Diabetic Doll ♥ Lilly

When I found out Lilly was diabetic I searched for toys for young children with diabetes... I couldn't find anything... So my wheels started spinning, and I knew I would CREATE a diabetic doll for her.
Here she is
The Diabetic Doll


My mom made her little bloomers,
I added felt hearts to all the spots Lilly gets injected. Her backside, complete with Shot Spots ♥ Red zebra print dress
Flannel pajamas
Of course Dr. Lilly needed a medical kit.
Complete with syringes, tape, face mask, gloves, tongue depressors, and cotton pads.
Now Lilly can give her doll "insulin shots"

What a precious gift! Maybe you should patent that!! I am sure Lilly is going to be thrilled with her doll! You are so clever!

That is very sweet. I have a niece and nephew that are both type 1 diabetic. When my niece was diagnosed I gave her a stuffed dog that she still has almost 10 years later (she was 5). That dog has had more shots and pokes and insulin sets put in it than can be imagined! Help a frightful thing be a little more manageable.

Beautiful in thought, intention, execution, and spirit.

Oh Jen, that is absolutely ingenius and wonderful!!!!!

With so-o many children out there having diabetics, perhaps you should patient it, and start your own business making them. I know many a grandparent whom would be snatching them up!!!

p.s. I wrote that part before I decided to go ahead and read through the other commentors - so I was not copying Amy R. or Lemon Drops Simple Stuff when I wrote it o;-]

Isin't it cool how when we have a heavy desire in our heart to do something 'super special' in order to be an encouragement to somebody, the Lord blesses us with some wonderful idea? He is just so amazing!!!!

Not sure who will appreciate the doll more, Lilly or her mama ;->

Well done Jen (and Jen's mom)!!

Sharon said...

What a wonderful idea!! I know Lilly must be so glad to have you.

Jennifer and Amy said...

How sweet this is! JDRF gives all children diagnosed a bear like this called "Rufus, the bear with Diabetes" He is Jackson's constant companion, but wow! a sweet doll for a little girl! Perfect!

Elise said...

Oh my goodness...I don't know who will love it more, me or Lilly. That is sooo cute!! And so thoughtful.
Thank you in advance!!
Elise
