Israeli designer Yaara Nusboim has created a set of dolls to help children with therapy through play. Alma Dolls are handcrafted by the designer herself. The dolls are a collaboration between Nusboim and child psychologists, and represent particular emotions. Plain magazine has more details:
Their shapes, weight and textures differ according to the feeling they symbolize, helping the child interpret a range of emotions during therapy, and giving the therapist clues to the child’s mental and emotional state. “The dolls are meant to facilitate a child’s connection to his inner world, and to improve and heal his condition,” the designer says. She hopes that the Alma Dolls can be internationally marketed to reach other children in need.
