Wonder Crew Introduces Dolls for Boys, Now on Kickstarter
NORTHAMPTON, Mass., March 16, 2015 -- Wonder Crew (http://www.wondercrew.com), a new line of dolls for boys created by psychotherapist and mother Laurel Wider, today announced the successful launch of its Kickstarter funding campaign. To back the project, visit: http://kck.st/1aJMwCe
Wider was inspired by the way play influences child development and frustrated by the many gender stereotypes that toys perpetuate. Wonder Crew's 15-inch soft-bodied dolls, referred to as Crewmates, combine the adventure of an action figure with the emotional connection of a favorite stuffed animal. They provide boys with the opportunity to build emotional intelligence and creativity, addressing the developmental needs of the whole boy rather than only those commonly recognized as masculine.
