The art of doll making has a history that goes back thousands of years. In a world without mass produced playthings, items like dolls were precious and hard to come by. Eventually, dolls evolved into the comfort and fashion objects we’re familiar with today, and can be found by the hundreds in just about any discount or department store in the world, but there are still a number of craftspeople who continue to produce interesting, beautiful and top-quality dolls. Viola Hale, of Viola Studio Dolls, is one of these artists.

One evening Danielle Stangler was out to eat with her family when she looked over to see her 18-month-old daughter covered in macaroni and cheese. Stangler knew that her tired little one was going to hate having her face wiped and was anticipating the scene that she was about to endure. She asked her husband to dip his napkin in his drink and proceeded to wipe her face. To her surprise, the reaction to the napkin was “nummy, nummy!” As it turned out, her husband’s drink was lemonade. Stangler was able to get every last piece of food off with no battle at all. From there, the idea for a flavored face wipe, NeatCheeks, was born.

Most parents will try anything to comfort their child at night, especially when they have to stay at the hospital. One family in particular found a solution with a Cloud b toy, the Twilight Turtle. To help her 7-year-old son Max battling brain cancer, mom Audra Wilford gave him Twilight Turtle, and he immediately felt the healing calm of the tranquil star display. This inspired her to start the MaxLove Project, an organization that raises money to fund childhood cancer and rare diseases research, and to donate hundreds of thousands of Cloud b Super Max turtles to children currently fighting these illnesses.
