The List of Black Dollmakers is Growing!

I am thrilled to celebrate the progress that has been made in the area of doll manufacturing. From one person shops to full assembly warehouses, there are many more choices for parents to select from when hunting for dolls for their children.

One of the next stages I hope to see is the coming together of several of these companies into a larger franchise that can help with mass production. I also hope that society will grow to the point that these won’t only be seen as black dolls for black children, but as beautiful dolls for ALL children.

  1. I had a TJ Walker when I was little. There were so few “black dolls” when I was growing up, this was a doll that I treasured and in fact. . . . I still have her in her original outfit.
