LOS ANGELES, CA, Dec. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ - PocketPeople Productions LLC, http://www.PocketPeopleAvenue.com, the new collectible doll company, are excited to finally announce their world of Pocketbilities!
The lovable pocket-sized dolls entitled, PocketPeople, which started as a home-spun project by Rita Ross as she was navigating her way through Thyroid Cancer, have energized and inspired an entire following of fans of all ages across America. Now, reaching her five-year remission mark, Ross reflects back on how PocketPeople helped save her life: "While dealing with the difficulties and aftermath of having Cancer, PocketPeople became a powerful healing tool for me. Even when my cancer was gone, I was left with a myriad of damages both emotionally and physically. PocketPeople has been an unexpected porthole through this trauma and has shown me that creating something beautiful from the heart, can transform pain into passion."
Ross' partner, Laura Stone Walston, the former Vice President of International Licensing for DIC Entertainment and Mattel consultant for their licensed Barbie products comments, "When I met this amazing lady, she pulled out about ten of these incredible handmade pocket size dolls from her purse. They were profoundly joyful and I knew if we joined forces we could manifest an amazing business organically."
With Ross and Walston's ongoing passion and creative insight leading the way, PocketPeople Productions LLC have now partnered with Fabric Avenue / Trims Avenue Inc., one of the largest distributors of fashion and home textiles / trimmings in North America, to bring the magical brand to life.
"We are very excited to be a partner in the PocketPeople business. We have created a strong marketing and distribution strategy that will not only create the lovable Ross-inspired dolls, but a full line of apparel and consumer products that reflect the originality of her creations," adds Samir Masri, Fabric Avenue's owner.
Each collectible doll has its own unique name and story to convey Ross' universal message of compassion, empathy and togetherness. Be on the lookout for the first series of collectible Pocket People dolls at your neighborhood merchants come Spring 2013!
