Spreading Joy and Creating Smiles - recently a most happy delivery of Bumble Dolls were received by the New Jersey institute for Disabilities. Crafted with love and sent with warm wishes, the cuddly  Bumble Dolls are waiting to be delivered in the arms of the children and adults served by NJID. The creator of Bumble Dolls is Maxmillian William Loeffler, who was inspired by the professionals who care for his sister during her illness.  Becoming a hospital volunteer, Max was further motivated  by expressions of gratitude and kindness that filled his days. Max designed and fabricated the dolls and soon began constructing them for distribution to hospitals and nonprofits. During the difficult days of the pandemic, the gift of Bumble Dolls was most appreciated.  JID salutes Max and his team of creative and dedicated volunteers who know that smiles are priceless and gratitude pays it forward. Heartfelt thanks to all..

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  

Founder & Creator of Bumbles

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.

Best wishes,
Chris Christie, Governor

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.
