Official Black Dolls (I loved this one the most)

Up from a child I have always had and loved black dolls of all kinds.

As a growing girl my mother made sure that all of my dolls were the same color as I was. She did this on purpose and the reason for it was to help build a healthy self-esteem about my own race of people. She knew how important it was for me to love my dark skin. So today I went searching and found some beautiful articles and videos that I enjoyed watching about the very subject. Wow these dolls are of all color tones, some cinnamon, mocha, chocolate, bronze and more. Although I like all sizes, shapes and types of dolls I do have a weakness for beautiful black Barbie dolls baby. For they are so amazing!

So here’s a few spots I visited today, some on pinterest, a few blogs here and there and they were so interesting that I could have pined over them all day long if I had the time.

I like to call my self a happy soul, a daydreamer and have a heart of a gypsy. Love to use my imagination. And trying out new things. Life can be so wonderful and enjoyable when I am being positive and releasing.

    I got my first and only black doll when I was 15 years old in 1975. I still have my black doll and I name her “Monga”. I love her and brings me good memories…Thank you for this post.

    • cool…..and you still have it after so many years….that’s super special. I wish I still had my dolls from my childhood but it was unfortunate that my dolls were lost due to a fire, we had to move and was left with only the clothes on our backs. My mother was such a strong woman because she had to divide us up between different family members until she could find us another home.
