Anatomical Dolls

Children communicate through the universal language of "play" and Teach-A-BodiesTM speaks that language.

Teach-A-BodiesTM offers an array of world-class instructional dolls to help professionals break down barriers when communicating with children.

Originally developed in 1981 to aid in sex education, Teach-A-Bodies anatomically detailed dolls have become a premier resource for professionals in forensic investigations, child and adolescent therapies, and with developmentally disabled and hearing/speech impaired individuals.

These anatomical dolls facilitate understanding both to and from children in ways that overcome a child's limited cognitive and verbal abilities. Toys contribute to a youngster's life by assisting in the interpretation of the world around them. Through play a child discovers how to come to terms with the outside world. According to the Practice Guidelines by the American Professional Society on the Abuse of Children (APSAC), when used by a knowledgeable and experienced professional, anatomical dolls can be an effective tool to aid in interviewing children to determine whether an allegation of sexual abuse is likely true, and if so, the nature of the abuse. However, anatomical dolls are only one of many useful tools and cannot take the place of sound interview skills and reasoned clinical judgment.

Teach-A-Bodies products feature Playpeople, life-size dolls, paper dolls, booklets, and the new Draw-a-Bodies line, as well as an extensive collection of doll accessories for the professional therapist, investigator, attorney, and sex-educator. All Teach-A-Bodies products, excluding the booklets, accessories and Draw-a-Bodies, are anatomically correct.
