Our passion at Paradise Galleries is to create dolls that stir your spirit, warm your heart, and nurture your soul. We hear from customers everyday that our dolls bring them comfort. It gives us great joy to know that our dolls bring happiness to homes all over. We're always looking for ways to help those in need and this past holiday season, we donated many of our dolls to the "Adopt A Senior" organization.
We were shocked to learn that over 3 million Americans live in nursing homes. Unfortunately, many of these people do not have family or friends visitors so it can become lonely for them. We partnered with the Adopt-A-Senior Organization and donated many Paradise Galleries dolls to elders in nursing homes. Providing many elders, including Maria in the photos we're sharing, with dolls gives them a sense of joy and makes them feel less alone around the holidays. Maria was given two of our adorable Baby Bundles including Born To Be Spoiled and All The Ladies Love Me. Our friends at Adopt-A-Senior organization told us the seniors faces lit up when they receive a baby doll and nothing makes us feel better than that!

With children social distancing and staying at home, it is so important, now more than ever, for them to find comfort in play. Play has always been a focal point for the development of children, and playing with dolls in particular has been proven to have many benefits for a child’s social and cognitive growth. Here are a few ways that dolls can help support our children during this time.
Now more than ever, we are committed to giving back to those in the elderly community who are being restricted from visits from their loved ones during this time. But we need your help! Read our blog to nominate a nursing home to which we will donate our dolls, bringing those in assisted care facilities love and companionship!
