Many of you who have been following this blog know that I am constantly on the lookout for dark skinned dolls for my kids because I am a firm believer that representation matters. I’m pleased to say that Mattel has embraced diversity and that they expanded their range this year to include a more diverse range of dolls with varying skin tones and body shapes.
The Fashionista line includes 23 dolls with eight different skin tones, 14 different facial structures, 22 hairstyles, 23 hair colours, and 18 eye colours.
This is good news! Even better news is that I have two Barbies to give away, just in time for Christmas!
First prize: Barbie Musician Doll & playset valued at R450.00
Barbie musician doll comes with a guitar and a keyboard, plus other accessories, to spark imaginations. She has fully articulated arms and legs in order to hold the guitar and sit on the keyboard bench. The pink guitar also has a detachable strap for practice or performance.
