Create a Diabetic Barbie

My 8 year old daughter is type 1 diabetic and upon hearing of the Bald and Beautiful Barbie movement, she asked me why there wasn't a Diabetic Barbie available too. So, we are hoping to gather enough support and make Mattel see that a Diabetic version of their doll complete with insulin pump, pens, and blood sugar meter would be a FANTASTIC thing for all kiddos! It would be a great educational toy, help spread awareness, AND help make kids living with this disease feel special.

      Being different is hard as an adult and harder as a child. Children need to know that there isn't anything wrong with them, that they're just as wonderful and beautiful as any other child.

      I have Type 1 Diabetes, and think that it would be incredibly helpful for a child with this disease to have a toy that they can connect to on this level.

      Young women look up to Barbie, she should be just as alive and realistic as they are. Open the eyes of young girls and give them hope! :)
