Growing up Latina chances are you grew up playing with a doll that looked nothing like you. Take Barbie for example. The Caucasian doll has an unrealistic body type and also lacks racial diversity, which can be harmful to girls. Though Mattel does have Theresa and Christie, growing up there still wasn't enough inclusivity in the Barbie world. But one doll company is adding a dash of color into the toy industry.
Meet HarperIman Dolls. The handmade linen dolls feature an array of hair textures and skin tones that celebrate the diversity among black and brown girls. Unlike Barbie dolls, HarperIman Dolls allows Afro-Latinas to get the opportunity to custom make doll's color, hair, and outfit for only $80.
