Im 28 and as a kid I had tons of black barbies and dolls. I'm surprised they don't have toys like that there.

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 ?


was gonna say too bad u couldn;t venture in this direction to start ur own business there for black dolls, etc...i know it would take funding and all but something to think about...hopefully she will enjoy your present..Happy birthday to her...

sorry abt that OPHug i dealt with this same raashole thing today!! roll up to the toy store ask for the barbies- i see at least 18 different blonde Barbie and not a bumbocleet Christie in sight!!!!! my country is 90%black! i asked the sales lady: she said barbie is not black shes white wtf am i talking abt? i said yes i get that but where is christie and theresa and kai (the asian one, cant remember her name)? her defence : she (the owner) brings them down if she can get them. phuckery!

i cried real tears in 2012 when i couldnt find a black barbie for my god daughters i had to settle on a chinese and latino one.

Oh yea the barbies of colour have different names changed now, i just dont know them. 

even the soft rag doll types are white babies everything is white with blonde hair the phuckers didnt even have Princess TianaClapClap


ETA its been eons since i've seen STEVEN (Black Kenz)

haha yess there are , the dutch were one of the biggest imeperialists. We have people from Surinam (where my dad comes from) we have people from the caribbean and we have africans mostly Ghanian. There actually is a large district in amsterdam called zuid-oost where most of the black people live and where I usually go to get my hair products.
