About Black Doll

Realistic looking black dolls are a positive influence on African-American children. A child who plays with a doll that resembles his or her ethnicity develops a stronger sense of identity. Black dolls have not always been made to look authentic. They have been made throughout history, but only recently have doll artist begun to play close attention to creating realistic black dolls.Vintage black dolls were first created by coloring the molds of white dolls brown. During the Golden Age of doll manufacturing, beginning in the late 19th century, black dolls were frequently produced in Germany and France. These dolls were expensive and sold only to the wealthy, making it impossible for black families to acquire the dolls. Therefore, little attention was paid to the authenticity of the dolls' look because they were never intended for black children.The first doll considered to have accurate ethnic features, the Sara Lee doll, did not come along until the late 1950s. In the decades that followed, more attention was paid to creating dolls with a variety of skin tones. Also, head molds were created specifically for black dolls with authentic facial features. Presently, most doll lines include at least one black doll.Although the evolution of black dolls in the toy industry has progressed significantly, there is still much more work to be done to create ethnic toys. Native American, Latino and Asian dolls have yet to make the same advancements as black dolls. As doll artists expand their repertoire to include a broader spectrum of ethnicities, children of all backgrounds will benefit from the joys of owning a doll that shares their likeness.
