My daughter had a black and white doll when she was little. The only white dolls she have now are the disney princesses because she wanted a dollset with every disney princess. She is into monster high now so the dolls have blue, purple, green faces

If her reasons are not racism, propaganda or inferiority/superiority etc driven, then I'd leave it alone

I would've asked the white lady why a white doll for a black child in a light easy manner just to see what her reaction was

I asked her the other day why the doll is her favorite. She says because she has a bottle and pink clothes. My daughter's favorite color is pink. I also asked her how is the doll different from her other dolls, and said its because this "baby" is small and soft and has a headband. My daughter does understand that she has brown skin, but she doesn't really understand the concept of different races. When I asked her what color the doll was, she said pink.

In that case I'd leave her be with the doll and let her enjoy it since it's for the right reasons

ETA: my daughter is 2. i just want her to see her own beauty before accepting anyone else's. unlike my childhood.
I can't wait to try this.Tongue


But yeah, no yt dolls. They will have plenty of time to get inundated with yt beauty images their entire lives.

I only had white dolls growing up--barbie, cindy (she ain't nothing but a cheap knock-offLOL) and "dolly"...she had a huge plastic head and cloth body

I used to take my dolls apart and just play with the legs and stuff lol

if I have a girl and she's into dolls, they'd only be brown/black like these


you can style her hair...I remember asking my mum to do plait barbies hair like mine was and she couldn'tLOL
