A simple bath time conversation changed everything.

I have designed and developed a doll range based around the body shapes of fruit. You can’t have a fruit salad with only one fruit, nor can we have a society that only represents one main body type, especially when it comes to our children.

  • Imagine a world that reflected size diversity in its advertising and all of its media.
  • Imagine young children not wishing that their bodies were smaller, and being happy in the skin that they are in.
    Imagine a world where women’s bodies were accurately reflected in the world around them.
  • What if I told you that you could be a part of making that dream a reality?As someone who has lived and survived a 20 year eating disorder, I’ve now dedicated my life to do all that I can to help ensure future generations of young women avoid going through the experience of so many that have suffered with poor body image.

The Designing Process

I would like to introduce you to the 3D model of Abby Apple, who has a larger torso, and Penelope Pear, who has wide hips and a smaller upper body.

Starting the design process

After travelling to China with my designs and a heartful of dreams, I now have two prototypes of the dolls I have worked so passionately to bring to life.

3D prototype

These dolls have been created in the hopes of encouraging children to recognise that we don’t all have to look the same and that you can be healthy in more than one size.
Let’s bring size diversity into children’s play (these are not the doll’s actual heads)

My wish is to raise enough money to also bring to life two other dolls Brittany Banana and Georgia Grape (as in a bunch), however that wish coming true is really in your hands.
These dolls are unlike any other. They have been created to have a softer touch than regular dolls, as I wanted to replicate a more human feel, this has been achieved using a soft vinyl. Not only that, but the dolls all have a story. They are all professional women who exercise because they can, choosing activities that they love. Abby Apple for example is a teacher by day, who loves Zumba dancing and plays soccer on the weekends.
Each doll comes with 3 outfits that children will enjoy taking on and off, including an outfit that represents the healthy, recreational activity enjoyed by that doll. I want to break down the stereotype that there is only one way to look when you lead a healthy life.

My aim is to provide parents with an opportunity for discussion, and I want children to see that beauty is not and never will be one size fits all, and that ‘skinny’ isn’t the only way to be.
Ultimately, I would love for these dolls to come in a diverse range of ethnicities as a true reflection of the diversity in our world. When we don’t see ourselves reflected in the world we think we’re the only ones.

With so many children wishing their bodies were smaller, wouldn’t it be incredible to hear children proudly proclaiming in playgrounds around the world that they have a body like Abby Apple, who despite her roundedness, lives her life with laughter and love!
It’s time we learnt to be proud of our shapes. Viva la ’revolution! Let’s be part of the change!

I believe together, we can change the future, one mother at a time, one daughter at a time
