Last week, the American Girl company started selling a diabetes care kit for dolls. It's a great option for girls with diabetes and for those who love them. Play is a great way to process all sorts of childhood experiences, including that of having diabetes. My daughter has spent countless hours playing with her teddy bears with diabetes- checking their blood sugars, providing them with pretend pumps, and feeding them carefully calculated treats at tea parties.
Her American Girl doll, however, does not have diabetes. And, as I wrote a couple of years ago in the post below, she does not want to. I double checked with both girl and doll, and neither wants the diabetes care kit. They may want to visit the American Girl store to check it out, though. I definitely do.
