Hello New York Doll Collectors, and Happy Independence Day! I was thinking about the multicultural country that we live in. We all come from all walks of life, ethnicity, cultures and so on. Well, this is also true, in our world of dolls, as there are different types of dolls that are made in this world to reflect the many ethnicities we have in our world. I will explain.
Dolls are universal, yes. However, there are dolls that have been made to look like all of us, which is particularly wonderful for young children; To have dolls that look just like them, so that they may see a reflection of a beautiful person, themselves, in the world. The dolls are made to represent ethnicity are shown in hair type (curly, straight, coarse or fine) skin tone (ebony black, mahogany or coffee brown, or pearly white) and cultural or traditional dress or with a specific style and look.
We took a look at New York’s Patty Doll Company and found some wonderful multicultural dolls. Some of our favorites are Kayla, an 18 inch African-American, Jasmine, an 18 inch from Adora.com (a company that creates beautiful dolls of ethnicity and more http://www.adoradolls.com/our-story/) and finally Julia’s an 18 Doll PJ Party (said to be a favorite of girls of Indian, Filipino, Hispanic and Biracial descent)
Kayla, is dressed in a pair of jean capris, an oversized cotton ruffled blouse, with a deep orange embroidered trim around the ruffles. The blouse has flower prints. Her beautiful tresses, are curled around her sweet little face. Kayla also, sports a pair of suede like clogs, which are just awesome. They make me want to wear them; if I could.
Jasmine, is dressed in the same outfit as Kayla, only the embroidered trim is in a light olive color. Her beautiful black, silky tresses are smoothed into two pony tails, with ribbons. What an adorable sight she is.
Julia, is dressed in a very colorful, Pajama set with slippers. She is wearing a baby blue T, with two embroidered, overlapping hearts. Her cute pajama pants, have patterns of different hearts; from checkered to solid gold or shaded. She is also wearing a pair of baby blue slippers. They look so comfortable, don’t they?
