Hi- Patty and Sarah here, we are the creators of the College Savings Doll series. We have worked hard to get the company up and running. We will be debuting our 1st doll, “Deanna”, in the spring of 2013.
Patty is a financial guru & Mom, who had the idea that little girls needed to create goals for themselves while they had fun playing. She loved playing with her “Velvet” doll in the 70’s, little sister of “Chrissy”. At that time, all girls had for role models were models like “Barbie” dolls. Patty wanted a doll that was realistic as well as goal oriented, based on real girls bodies and real college saving situations.
Sarah is a former educator who has seen many girls struggle over the years with the “body-image” issue having a hard time viewing themselves as beautiful & enough just as they are. Girls are often challenged by media images of perfection & do not have realistic positive images as role models.
Unlike Patty, Sarah was a fan of the “Dina” and “Brandi” dolls as well as anything miniature.
