Tonner unveils first transgender doll line, inspired by Jazz Jennings

Fashion doll brand, Tonner has unveiled its first transgender doll with its new Jazz Jennings line.

The star of TLC’s docuseries, I Am Jazz has teamed with the fashion doll artist Robert Tonner to develop a new line fashioned in her likeness.

The new collection joins an already popular line-up that includes the likes of DC and Marvel, Twighlight, Harry Potter, Dr Seuess, Peanuts and the Wizard of Oz.

With the Jazz Jennings doll, Tonner continues its history of groundbreaking doll line introductions based on socially transformational heroes. These have historically included the plus-size model Emme and Carmen Dell ‘Orefice.

Robert Tonner, CEO of Tonner Doll, said: “Jazz stands for everything I respect from a human nature point of view-she’s incredibly brave, intelligent, warm-hearted and creative.”

16 year old Jazz Jennings is an honorary co-founder of the Transkids Purple Rainbow Foundation, speaking at universities, medical schools, conferences, conventions and symposiums all over the country.
