LAPD to give away dolls to special kids

Jester & Pharley Dolls will be distributed by the Los Angeles Police Department to 1,000 special-needs youngsters throughout the city.

The dolls are based on the popular characters in the best-selling children's book, ``The Jester Has Lost His Jingle.''

The Jester & Pharley Dolls will be presented by Barbara Saltzman, mother of David Saltzman, the late author-illustrator of the popular children's story, and by Pam Fitzpatrick, co-owner of The Dollmakers, who designed the dolls for The Jester Co.

Saltzman's family formed The Jester Co. to publish ``The Jester Has Lost His Jingle,'' after the writer died of Hodgkin's disease shortly before his 23rd birthday seven years ago.

Each police division will also receive several copies of the book for use at their stations.
