I can see the side of the issue that Jane Bigham shares wanting these dolls available via retail but, I think Mattel is correct using the donation method of distrbution, for now. Yes, there are many other reasons for hair loss or hair loss as adult but, a child is so fragile & is looking for some normality. As a childhood cancer survivor myself, having a wonderful plaything given to you during a trying hospital stay would be a great reminder that fun still exists behind the four walls of that hospital.

I wonder if these dolls are available here in NZ for children in hospitals. If not, I wonder how to get them here. Any helpful suggestions?
