Forty Houston kids got a crazy, colorful play experience last month courtesy of Distroller Wərld, a specialty boutique born from the vibrant imagination of Mexico City artist Amparo Serrano in 2004. Distroller's boutique in the Nordstrom wing of the Galleria partnered with Houston nonprofit Be An Angel to give local kids free VIP treatment and the chance to adopt their own "neonate babies," Distroller's colorful toys marketed to kids as infant creatures from space–only available at the Houston boutique.
Be An Angel, the organization dedicated to improving life for children with disabilities, teamed up with Distroller to offer the exclusive experience to 40 children in celebration of its mission. That included Be An Angel program participants of Thomas Horace Rogers School, which serves students ages 3–22 who are deaf and hard of hearing and those with multiple impairments. The neonate babies, which Distroller says make for "an out-of-this-world experience," were meant to provide positive, hands-on play for all.
"We believe that children are the heart and soul of humanity, so we help children with special needs experience life at their fullest potential," said Be An Angel chairman Robbie Schilhab. "Our partnership with Distroller Wərld helps us carry out that vision."
