The Australian Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Dolls are a world-first collaboration with Miniland in Spain, to create an Aboriginal Doll specifically for the Australian market, with 3.5% of proceeds from sales being donated to Aboriginal community-led organisation Children’s Ground.
This doll was developed here in Australia in consultation with several indigenous Australians including the renowned artist Garry Purchase.
Like all Miniland Dolls, they can be articulated and are anatomically correct dolls, allowing children to make an important difference between them, thus strengthening knowledge of anatomy and differential features.
These Miniland dolls assist children with self-recognition and develop a sense of belonging to groups and communities while respecting culture, diversity and fostering inclusivity for all.
Made in Spain from Phthalates-free vinyl, they are soft and flexible to the touch and are vanilla scented to smell like a newly born baby.

The fact that the dolls have a gender allows children to make an important difference between them, strengthening knowledge of differential facts. They do not contain batteries or make any sound, so the dolls do what the child wants them to.
This differentiates them from other dolls that subject the child to a specific play pattern. The variation in available models means that there is always a particular model for a specific need.
Furthermore, the dress collections foster manipulative skills and help toddlers become familiar with different types of zippers and buttons. Doll accessories feature a wide range of details and are of the highest quality.
