Marietta, GA (BlackNews.com) — The growth in children of color has surpassed the majority. Still, the availability of products, specifically books and dolls targeting multi-cultural children is extremely limited. There are few multi-cultural storylines that feature tween/teen girls and a limited number of dolls available in the market that effectively capture the beauty of the multi-cultural girl.
To find dolls created in the essence of the multi-cultural girl requires extensive hours of searching and a variety of vendors and websites. Finding books that capture the attention of young girls and feature characters they can relate too is yet another challenge. Introducing Double Dutch Dolls- a brand that blends the true beauty of today’s girl with books, dolls and accessories that are trendy, hip, and fashionable. Double Dutch Dolls is a quality, product line that fuses beauty, fashion and style with a multi-cultural flare.
“The world is changing and we are now a beautiful rainbow of colors and cultures. Today’s beauty comes in all shades and the Double Dutch Dolls mission is to celebrate the multicultural girl. We have received an amazing outpouring of support from mothers, daughters, grandmothers, granddaughters, aunts, etc. who are excited about our books and dolls. We are thrilled to know that we are touching the lives of young girls.” – K. Charles, Founder, Double Dutch Dolls
