The American Girl catalog is filled with pictures of adorable kids and their dolls, but in the latest edition, there’s one new model who’s getting a lot of attention. Ivy Kimble, a four-year-old with Down syndrome is featured in the catalog and it’s a big deal because there are not a lot of ads showing kids with Down Syndrome.
Ivy’s mom, Kristin, says her booking the ad isn’t just exciting for her, but for anyone with a disability not used to seeing themselves in the media. “We want to keep seeing kids of all abilities out there in print,” she explains. She says the photos are opening up conversations about Down Syndrome and she hopes that will continue and help to normalize disability.
