Black Barbie World





When I was growing up, there were not that many Black Barbie dolls on the shelves.  I saw a few here an there, but not a whole lot.  However, today there are so many beautiful Black dolls in a number of alluring shades and hair textures.  Just like us.  I'm happy to know that there are young girls who can see their beauty more than I could when I was that age.  We need more beautiful Black Barbie images in this world to assure us of who we are in our own skin and that we are radiant and lovely in every way.  Hair, skin, eyes, lips, and noses.

  3. I'm white, tho as a child demanded black Barbies, hispanic Barbies, Asian Barbies granted they all had the same look just different color plastic... I felt it was important even at a very young age to reflect the world around me in my play time.
