Bumble Dolls were Created by a College Bound Teenager with a Big Heart:
Made in the USA
> Materials all Donated
> Stitched & Stuffed Personally
> Gifted to Hospital Patients
> An Ambition to Inspire
Maxmilian William Loeffler
Max realized while volunteering at Overlook Medical Center, that gratitude is expressed in different ways because people can apply it to the past by remembering positive memories, apply it to the present by not taking successes for granted, and apply it to the future carrying a hopeful and positive attitude. He was interested in capturing this feeling and sharing it with others, and Bumbles Dolls were born. Max's ambition is that these special dolls inspires those that receive the gift of gratitude to keep it alive and pass it on. The story behind their creation is quite fascinating.

Max Loeffler stands by the sign for the Bumbles Trunk Sale at Bloomingdale's in Short Hills. He based the faceless doll on one his sister carried with her all the time at home and in the hospital. He designed the dolls, picked out the fabric and has a team of volunteers who help him make them.
