The Black Doll Encyclopedia

Posted by Tonisha Kimble on

By now I think we've all seen the black/white doll comparison videos or scanned at least one article discussing the importance of having dolls that look like US. At this point there is no debate that having representative dolls is important to a melanated girl's self-esteem. It is also very clear that the marketplace is still lacking in representation of melanated dolls, what we need to know now is ... where do we find the black dolls that ARE out there? Well look no further!
This will be a resource for those looking for not just black dolls, but those made by black doll manufacturers -- so those product lines will be astericked*. Who creates the dolls is just as important, if not more than, the doll itself. This list will be updated periodically with links for purchase as new information becomes available.
