A word from the Detroit Doll Show host, Sandra Epps:
I believe it is important for Women and Children to see themselves in the products that they use. Dolls teach children about themselves and the world around them. Playing with dolls helps children develop cognitive, fine motor and self-help skills. Most importantly, Dolls can teach self love. Often times than not brown women and children struggle to love themselves because of the negative stereotype portrayed in the media, in addition to society's depiction of "beauty." It is true that image is everything and to see ones reflection in their dolls, magazines, television, etc. is most healthy. We as aunts, uncles, mothers, fathers, and friends must not only define our own beauty but encourage our children to love the skin that they are in.
YES YOU are Beautiful no matter what
SHADE of SKIN You’re IN!
The Detroit Doll Show is about celebrating diversity, culture, fashion, YOUR BEAUTY and having FUN.
'Love the Skin You're In'
