Nelly Empathy Doll

Our Ref #: 5EMNE
£59.25 (exc. VAT)
Nelly’s soft body and dress provide tactile input, and her comforting weight provides proprioceptive input for children that may not otherwise enjoy touching and cuddling due to sensory processing disorders. Fine motor and gross motor skills can be improved by the actions of picking Nelly up, cuddling and dressing her, as well as by making her ‘walk’, dance and jump. She can also help to develop speech and language skills – children can communicate with her, safe in the knowledge that they will not be corrected or chastised in any way.

Therapy Doll has been proven to significantly aid for children and those with dementia. With benefits such as boosting confidence and lowering feelings of social isolation, leading to a stronger feeling. Can help children with developmental delays due to conditions such as Downs’ Syndrome and Autism prepare for independent living as they get older.

I was very impressed with the service I received. I was kept informed on the status of my order and it was delivered ahead of the expected schedule. We bought Nelly for our mother who has dementia - she talks to her, cuddles her and seems to love her very much.
