Blind Cane for American Girl Doll
This is too adorable for words! An enterprising mother has made a blind cane for her visually-impaired daughter’s American Girl doll. How cool is that?? She’s selling it for $10 on her etsy site, a bargain when you consider what most AG accessories can run you.
The cane is made of plastic and sculpey clay and includes a ribbon that ties it to the doll’s wrist. Her site is called CuteAsADaisy and it looks like she offers other AG-related items.
By the way, American Girl also offers hearing aids for those dolls who are hearing impaired; check them out here. I love that they’re pink.
If you’ve got old stuffed animals taking up space, don’t throw them out. Learn the best storage ideas, donating options, and how to repurpose these well-loved friends!
