American Girl Doll Prosthetics

A Step Ahead received quite a bit of attention because of the American Girl® dolls we customize for kids with limb loss! Since so many people have been asking, we figured we should post a few details. We are NOT charging for the customization; we feel that it is absolutely crucial to boost the self-confidence, self-esteem, and feelings of inclusion for girls and boys with limb loss, and that something as small as a doll that resembles them can have a profound effect on their mental and physical well-being. In that spirit, anyone with a child who has had or is facing an amputation is welcome to send us an American Girl® doll which we will happily modify with a prosthetic limb (or limbs) to match the child. The prosthetics themselves are entirely designed and fabricated in our prosthetics shop alongside the “real” prosthetics, and are painted by hand in a variety of colors.

Proud Partners with American Girl Doll since 2015
