Moxie Girlz & Bratz True Hope Dolls Fighting Cancer– Bald And Beautiful.

As I traveled the isles of Javits at today’s Toy Fair, I was stopped my my tracks.

These bald and beautiful Moxie Girlz & Bratz dolls are MGA’s new “True Hope” dolls. Like children in cancer treatment who receive beads of courage, each doll comes with their own beaded bracelete.

Recently 2 Mothers of children with cancer started an initiativ on Facebook calling for Bald and Beautiful Barbies. While Mattel did not take action, MGA was definitely listening.

These dolls are truly amazing on so many levels. Not only going to bring joy to children battling cancer– they are going to raise awareness to anyone who sees them in a poster or on a shelf.

What’s more is that for every  “True Hope” doll sold,  MGA is donating $1 to City of Hope, which is a leading research, treatment and education center for cancer, diabetes and other life-threatening diseases.

The “True Hope” Moxie Girlz and Bratz dolls (which include boy dolls), will be available in June, retailing for $14.99.

  1. Thank you so much!!! words cannot express the feeling I have for your company doing this all I can say is wow and wipe the tears from my eyes my baby girl had leukemia and you better believe we will be buying these again wow!!! Amazing!! Thank you!!!

    • We hope your daughter is doing well. We agree that these dolls are incredibly powerful for raising awareness and helping a great cause!

  2. THIS IS WONDERFUL, BECAUSE THESE CHILDREN ARE STILL BEAUTIFUL GOING THROUGH TREATMENT EVEN IF THEY ARE BALD.
    JUST THE STRENGTH THEY HAVE IS WONDERFUL…
    I HAVE A TERMINALLY ILL DISEASE CALLED NONALCOHOLIC STEATOHEPATITIS CIRRHOSIS DUE TO DIABETES IT SCARS THE LIVER SO I NEED A TRANSPLANT AND EVERYDAY I NEED THE STRENGTH TO GO ON WITH EVERYTHING THEY WANT TO DO TO ME.
    SO THANK YOU FOR THE DOLL FOR THE CHILDREN THEY REALLY DESERVE IT……

    • We agree these children needed a toy that looked like them. That showed how beautiful they still are inside and out.

      We will keep you in our thoughts Karly!

  3. I am so glad that MGA released these dolls and it proves as usual Mattel is too busy tooing and froing to get anything done. More worried about profit than having any moral fibre. Other companies just get on with it and do it.

    • We agree that what MGA did was a very beautiful thing! We will continue to fully support these dolls and all they stand for.

  4. maybe Matel isn’t too busy “tooing and froing”, but maybe they believe that putting dolls in mini skirts, thigh high socks, makeup, embelished underwear, platform boots, belly shirts, dresses with slits up to their privates is inipropriate for a little girl to play with. Also look at the Bratz website, under the “bio” section, on each doll. The dolls favorite foods are power bars, and “right now im vegetarian, next week, who knows!”. Yasmins favorite books are “chick-lit with happy endings”. Lastly, the only doll who mentions they want a job, is the boy, who wants to be a doctor…

    Barbie teaches girls they can be whoever they want to be, while Bratz tells girls they have to dress like a hooker, spell everything wrong, and just look cute because that is all that matters.

  5. i have been buying bratz dolls for years and started a collection of them
    these dolls will be an amazing addition to my collection because these dolls are extra special
    i love how mga is doing this and i hope they raise a lot of money to help and i will try my best to buy them all!

  6. I LOVE THIS!!!!! It’s about time…..GREAT JOB Moxie Girlz & Bratz for stepping up to create such A WONDERFUL DOLL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  7. Thank you for this!! I have Hormonal Triggered Alopecia and my first Universal loss was at 13! I went through tons of teasing and had to learn the hard way how to find my inner beauty. 15 years later I know toys/dolls like this would have helped my sisters, me, and many friends adjust to the rapid change through play. I plan on getting several of them so next time I am triggered I can give them to MY daughter(3) and son(6) to play with to help them adjust to Mommy is bald again. I pray my children aren’t going to develop alopecia, but if they do I will have an extra outlet to talk to them about their loss.

  8. thank you so much for these dolls. i live in cleveland, oh and a couple of us women have gotten together and decided to make an event out of gathering these dolls via donations from others we know and some we don’t know and donate them to University Hospital’s Rainbow Babies and Children’s Hospital. We have already spoken to the hospital and they have happily agreed to accept these dolls for the children there. We will not be able to give them directly to the children but will go through a hospital administrator and she will pass them out. Thanks again, without these dolls this event would not be possible. We thought maybe they could make great christmas presents for the children.

  9. There’s a doll named Avery in this and she has a purple dress and her doll comes out in June and I knew the girl she was made from she was like my little sister and our support color for her is purple and her birthday is in June I totally support this

  10. I lost my 6 year-old daughter, Avery, in May 2011 to a brain tumor. She received an “Avery” Moxie doll for her birthday a few months before she was diagnosed and thought it was the coolest thing to have her name on a doll box! Thank you for spreading awareness about childhood cancer and raising money in hopes of finding a cure!

  11. It’s awesome that you have boy ones too! My 7 yr old son who battled undiffrertated soft tissue sarcoma.He’s in remission as of 9-14-12!! He thinks that its awesome there is a doll that looked like him when he went through chemotherapy and radiation. he had a rough time at school because his hair was growing back and his classmates do what childrentend to when they don’t understand something and kind of shuned my baby boy. I think that it is awesome that your doing this. More people need to be aware of childhood cancer. You guys are awesome!! And thank you.

  12. I think these are so special and teaches us a lesson in life! I bet all the kids out there who have cancer and received one of these dolls are happy and do not feel different they probably think that whoever made these have a heart and think we are all the same! If I had cancer I would do anything to make sure they know I am so thankful! I know a girl named Michelle who had a brain tumor and leukemia but stayed strong! Then for her birthday she received one of these dolls.

  13. I would like to know where to buy 2 of these dolls for our Relay for Life auction baskets. All the money will go for cancer research and to help the families expenses for travel, hotel,ect.
