BLACK DOLLS MATTER!-When will !Shoprite sell us Black Dolls in Nigeria so we can BUY!White dolls teach a Black child to want to be white,to want to Bleach like what is happening all over Nigeria! Menelik Charles WROTE on Facebook-
"Black dolls matter...
Because they're for the duration of your precious little girl's childhood. Little girls have a cute and complex relationship with their dolls. That is, they not only identify their dolls as themselves, they also play 'mom' to them. And, in times of distress, dolls become their playmates, comforters, and confidantes.
All-in-all, dolls are the go-to toy for little girls, a vital developmental tool, and a loving addition to their families.
Which brings me to the doll in the picture. This handmade gem is among several cloth designs by a Black-British mother who saw that dolls in 'Toys R Us'...that were bought by us... were not actually representing us!
So she decided to redress the balance and make her own...for our own.
Now she has a fledging little business supplying parents, daycare centers, and doll collectors, all over London and the UK. So if loving parents wish to bring a little extra joy into their little angel's this coming holiday season and for years to come, you may contact Nonkululeko Jijita on Facebook or go to her website here:
Please feel free to share this page on your walls so other parents can be informed of this wonderful opportunity to make a young girl's day
