Everybody wants a friend who is just like them, especially when there are few people around you in life with the same quirks and differences as you.
Positive representation is really important to help build self esteem in disabled children and studies have shown that the presence of toys with disabilities grow open minds in abled kids too.
For this, Adapted James hand makes button jointed bears in all colours with many different disabilities.
