This Obese Persona Doll is one of our original Dolls which we are selling off to make space for new goodies that have just arrived. We have them in sets (twins) but now sell them off individually - if you'd prefer the girl, dressed in her school pinafore dress please do let us know.
Our obese Persona Doll can be used by teachers, health professionals, social workers and others who want to help young children to understand the need for healthy eating and healthy life styles and to tackle childhood obesity. In line with the Change4Life initiative we have used the medical term obese; however when working with children we tend to use other words to describe her, for example chubby and over-weight. Clearly we all need to be sensitive in how we use these terms with children to ensure that they understand how words can be used to hurt and upset others. Our obese Persona Doll is probably the best Change4Life resource, helping young children to change their perceptions of junk food and help them to realise the benefits of healthy eating. Our obese Persona Doll is a great resource for your Healthy School tool kit. Come on let’s get together and ‘Change4Life’!!
In our opinion Persona Dolls are the most exciting, powerful and valuable resource for anyone tackling equality issues. We strongly recommend that before using your Persona Doll, you undertake Persona Doll Training. The Persona Dolls are ethically traded resources and our fair trade policy not only ensures fair prices for the families who work for The Parrotfish Company, but for you too!
