Have you ever considered, that is why they are so valuable, because aint no bunch of Black Folk got 'em?

Please. Just as soon as we get what is currently considered valuable, the bottom will drop out.

Forget them and their whole system ... it's never proven itself considerate of us as a whole ... we need our own!

Let us determine what is valuable ... not them!

I think it is of more value, considering our current condition, to buy from our own :

As collector's items, I think these are great.

As dolls that little girls would actually want to play with, I don't think so.

IMO, we still need something in-between a Barbie doll in "black-face" and other so-called African American dolls which are one-dimensional, representing little Black girls and Black women as diva-like "hoochie-mamas" with weave down her back and bling-bling all over, etc...

We need a happy medium between some "ghetto-fabulous" Barbie and an over-sensationalized theme doll.

The dolls, toys and clothing that is marketed to our children, IMO, is a direct reflection of what we complain about that "Children aren't allowed/encouraged to be children" any more.

Well, how can they when all they see representing them in their own lives and on tv and their clothes and their dolls is to have long, fake nails, long fake hair, shiny/glittery stuff to wear, and apple-bottom booties, etc...

These are the things our little girls see as so-called "black fashion" and the epitome of what it means to be a Black woman.

Right Sister Cherry ... Sister MUSBLKDOLL's baby dolls look like something you'd sit up and admire, not play with, drag down the street, put in the back of your little red wagon, on top of a rock garden you just built ... :)

Yes, I agree. Which means that the market is wide open for all the in-betweens you mentioned.

More evidence, that there is plenty of room for all moved in their Spirit to be a Black Baby Doll Maker!

Yes Yes Yes! :toast:
