Oke  so I am really angry let me tell you guys:
I wanted to make a barbie cake for my niece so I went to the toy store to buy a black barbie
When I asked the store manager if they had a black barbie she looked at me and said oh no i am sorry we do not have those. I was extremly suprised because when I was younger I LOVEEDD BARBIE and even though I am biracial my mum(who is caucasian ) always bought black barbies for me in THAT same store (about ten -twelve years ago ) and now they dont have them anymore , they do not even have the black baby born keep in mind that this is in Amsterdam we have a large group of black people. So I was forced to buy this big headed bratzz doll Jazzmine wich had like a caramel color and was even on saleCry  I wanted to ask you guys do you think this is weird ?  and how is it in America and the rest of Europe can you buy a black barbie and baby born easily ?

I can feel you on that.

When I was growing up I had these growing up girls figurines


They went all the way up to 16 and I got one on every birthday. Now that my niece is one, me and my mother were looking for some for her to continue the tradition. Turns out they'd stopped selling the black ones and only had the white ones. My mother was sooo upset. We ended up finding another version of them, but we wanted her to have the ones like me

That is so sad , It is really weird how some of these things are going backwards instead of forward because I remember that all of my caucasian friends also had at least one black barbie usually the mel b barbie (from the spice girls) . Is there a black Ken in the US?
