amamanta



Children enjoy playing with dolls that look and act like them. Knowing this, Margarita Maria Mesa Leal created Amamanta Family, a concept that through OneWorld Inc. as it’s US exclusive distributor produces a line of multicultural, breastfeeding anatomically detailed dolls. The dolls come in families of four and five-- pregnant woman doll, father doll, the siblings doll, a girl doll and a boy doll and nursing newborn doll--and represent more than 14 cultures, including traditional costumes Japanese dolls, Swiss dolls, Mexican dolls, Guatemalan dolls, Hindu dolls, Spaniard dolls, Hispanic traditional dolls, Colombian dolls, Italian dolls and more ethnic dolls. Anatomically detailed, mom is designed to show the birth process; a small cloth sack attached to her abdomen serves as the birth canal. Following birth, baby can then nurse at mother's breast. The folk toys are handmade by poor Colombian mothers who use their craft to support their families.

Amamanta Family is a set of educational anatomically correct dolls.

They are ideal for explaining the human reproductive cycle to boys and girls ages 3 to 10. From conception and birth of babies, breastfeeding, sexual education to demonstrating appropriate versus inappropriate touching.

These dolls include true anatomical details such as stitched on genitals and breasts. This means that children and parents alike will find the dolls true-to-life and see themselves as naturally complete and OK. 

 

Parents can use Amamanta anatomically-correct dolls as a sex education tool to help prevent or reduce the incidence of sexual molestation or abuse.  Dolls come "complete" with removable underwear, clothes and shoes. 

Amamanta family cloth dolls are soft and cuddly and consist of a mother doll, father doll, two sibling dolls: a boy doll and a girl doll and newborn baby doll. This newborn baby can be placed in the mother’s belly and pulled out of the mothers womb to demonstrate birthing to the child.  

Amamanta is an ideal interactive set of dolls for role playing with your children and a insightful discovery tool to explore your child’s mindset, perspective, emotional well being, worries or fears. A responsible parent or child therapist can address child issues that surface through playing.

Amamanta dolls are also an ideal tool for explaining pregnancy and the arrival of a new sibling to a young child. Changes that “mommie” is going through in her pregnancy, the birth process and the needs of the newborn (i.e.: nursing can also be addressed.). The parent can better manage the expectations of the child by explaining the changes in the parental roles as well as the new brother/sister role that the child can embrace when the new sibling comes home. Amamanta dolls can help parents guide children learn her/his new role of caring and protecting sister/brother through role-playing with parents. This can help in prevent sibling rivalry and jealous sentiments as the child adjusts to the arrival of a newborn. Other changes affecting the family and the child can be explained and rehearsed through role playing with these realistic and wholesome dolls.

The anatomically-correct Amamanta  family set of dolls have multiple uses for parents, educators, child therapists, health care professionals and sexual abuse prevention centers. It’s an interactive, role-playing tool for hands-on teaching that opens discussion about family issues in a non-obtrusive, natural and playful way.

Amamanta is also a wholesome prop for teaching your family values and instilling good principles at an early age. Parent can role-play with the child and dolls as an alternative to a bed time story. This technique may help discover and resolve conflicts or concerns affecting the child during the day.

Amamanta Family is a concept created right from the very beginning. They are hand-made with great love and care in a fair-trade market style in Medellin, Colombia. Your purchase of Amamanta helps provide income and job opportunities to one of the most disadvantaged people in the area. These dolls are not made in an industrial factory setting; instead each Amamanta doll is assembled by hand and therefore unique. Amamanta has created a needs-based apprenticeship model in which women are trained by their peers and work from their homes in a family setting. Two local non-for-profit organizations work closely with Amamanta in the recruiting process so that job opportunities can be created to empower the people that need work the most. This way, although it could seem more difficult at times, we know that Amamanta is doing something “right” to help poverty in Colombia and providing a valuable tool for good parenting in a more affluent society. Act locally, think globally!
