Dolls with Special Needs

Kids need to have dolls and toys that resemble them. Sure, it’s great to have toys that you aspire to be, like an astronaut or scientist. But if every astronaut or scientist you see is an able-bodied white male, it changes the way a child thinks. That’s why it’s so important for kids to see toys and dolls with disabilities. To have them play in their imaginary world and do things normalizes it for real life. Here are more than 25 dolls and action figures with disabilities.

I’ve also included accessories for toys and action figures you might already have, plus where to buy them. These disabled dolls and action figures are not always easy to find. Admittedly, disabled dolls and dolls with wheelchairs were much easier to find in a female version than a male. But, still, I was excited to find one WWE wheelchair set, so disability toys for boys are out there!

Disabled/Disability Dolls

American GirlAmerican Girl has a great assortment for kids. While I’ll admit that they are not cheap, they are super cute! You can buy a wheelchair, a walker, hearing aids and much more. If you keep scrolling down, you’ll see I have listed similar items at Toys R Us that are less expensive.

Makies-I’ve included these even though they are no longer in business. Makies was a company that used 3D printer technology to make disabled dolls. I love that they included rare and unusual, hard to find conditions. Unfortunately, you’ll have to look to the resale market.
