American Girl, the doll manufacturer has created a new diabetes care kit complete with an insulin pump and pen, blood sugar monitor, log book, glucose tablets and lancing device.
The response to the product has been amazing and it's great to see a company like this being so inclusive. The product came about as a result of an eleven year old girl, Anje Busse, a type 1 diabetes patient, posted a petition for change in 2014. More than anything else she was desperate for these dolls to look like her, which of course required diabetic accessories.
Looking on their website, the reviews of the product are truly heart warming and it's so lovely to hear so many mums say how important this product is:
We just wanted to say a huge thanks to American Girl for being so inclusive and doing something so awesome, very excited to see what you'll come up with next!!
