Abstract

I Mirabilia (“The Wonders”) are a family of three interactive dolls for children who spend a long period of time in hospital, due to terminal illnesses or periodic therapies. Drawing on interviews and observations in a children’s hospital, three dolls were designed to help overcome specific emotional difficulties faced by children in this situation. The different interactions and behaviors triggered by the dolls enable the children to improve their relationships and make new connections with the people within the hospital, such as doctors, psychologists and other hospitalized children.
