Full body doll - Miss Molly with brown eyes

New Therapy Dolls Now Available

Miss Polly and Bobby Shaftoe have full silicone vinyl bodies and are therefore suitable for bathing, if desired. They can be viewed in the Bathtime Beauties section of the Child Representation Therapy category.

Child representation or Doll therapy has been around for some time and though there has been little studies done on the effectiveness of the use of baby dolls to assist in the alleviation of agitation in clients with dementia, anecodotal evidence supports the use of them when done properly and assistance of agencies who specialise in dementia behaviour management are brought in to provide information and  advise on use.
