Children's Mercy Hospitals and Clinics invite you to
"Medical Play Dolls"
Medical Play Dolls are special dolls made of muslin and fiberfill
and created from a simple pattern much like a gingerbread man
shape. These dolls are used by the Child Life department at
Children's Mercy to communicate with and comfort patients who must
undergo a difficult procedure at the hospital. The patients also
use this as a form of self-expression. The patient may color on the
doll to represent himself, his medical condition and sometimes the
medical procedure, i.e. a cast on a broken arm or leg. We need
hundreds of Medical Play Dolls for our patients every year.
Children's Mercy will provide the pattern. Your group will provide
the materials, time, talent and love that go into each doll.
Please contact Volunteer Services at (816) 234-3496 to learn more
about how your group can serve the patients and families of
Children's Mercy Hospital by creating Medical Play Dolls!
