September 18, 2019 07:44 PM

A Mechanicville teen and her mom collecting special Barbie dolls for kids have some very good news.

Chloe and Cindy Newman say since NewsChannel 13's story earlier this week, they've been flooded with donations.


The duo has received dozens of Barbie fashionistas, with prosthetic legs.

Chloe has a prosthetic leg, and wants to donate the dolls to children at Shriner's Children's Hospital in Springfield, where Chloe gets all her prosthetic limbs.
