Chronique beauté noire : Why is it important for you to sell black dolls ?
BBD : For our children to see their reflection in the toys they play with and books they read is so important. It is a known fact in child development that children learn through play. Seeing themselves in their toys is a big piece of the puzzle when it comes to building pride and self esteem. What parents tell and show their children is also very important. With Blackbeautydolls.com parents can create a consistent message for their children by talking to them about their culture, where they are from, black successful people, reading black books and surrounding them with toys that reflect them.
