I’m jealous and happy at the same time. This Xmas will be magical! Why ? Because, for a long time, I have been looking for the perfect Black dolls for my girls. And…guess what ? As many parents, my dream came true for my girls: Having a black doll! I’m so happy that in 2016, I was able to find black dolls similar to my girls with afro hair and chocolate skin. The only dolls that I had when I have their age were white dolls. It was impossible to get a doll who looks like me.
Xmas ‘2016’, Makedaa Dolls were my choice. I love their collection. There are 3 dolls, princesses with different sizes depending on your daughter’s age. These are 3 African sisters with a big afro hair exactly as my girls. You can choose between two black shades for each doll. They are just fantastic I love it! I’m really satisfied with my purchase. The store is located in U.K and I paid online with the border fees but it was worth it. I enjoyed selecting the dolls, their clothes and their sizes. I took baby ‘Winta Akua’ the youngest sister for my little one. My little one called her ‘Bebe’.
For my big one, I took the 2nd sister ‘Lya Serwaa’. She’s taller than her little sister and fits a girl between 4/5 years old. My daughter named her ‘Yasheeda’. I was surprised because I never heard this name before and it’s really nice.
I can tell you my satisfaction and pride to have Nappy dolls at home. It brings me happiness when I see them playing with Bebe and Yasheeda. These dolls are like them. Before that Black girls never got the chance to meet and play with someone like them. I think it’s a good start! They will learn to accept themselves by playing with characters that look like them. I encourage every Black woman to offer an afro black doll to their girls. At this time, it’s the best gift ever…
