Naija PrincessDetails about Nigeria, from the back of Aisha's box, read as follows:
Is a Nigerian doll of colour which has been created to fill the void of coloured dolls in the local market and in Africa. The dolls come with Nigerian names from the three major ethnic groups in Nigeria. Our culture and tradition are from our [decendants] of Kings and Queens. Every little girl dreams of [be] a princess and Naija Princess is here to make each and every little girl's dream a reality.
The largest and the most populated Black country in Africa and in the world is situated at the tail end of the West African sector of the great Black continent. On gaining her independence from Britain on October 1, 1960, Nigeria has been a fast and dynamic country.
Rich in history and culture, Nigerian women are renowned worldwide for their unique dress sense. There are over 200 ethnic groups currently living in harmony making up the country called Nigeria. There are, however, 3 major tribes and languages, namely, IBO, HAUSA and YORUBA,which these dolls represent.
The Ibo Princess, CHINYERE, from the rich dense rain forests of the East; the Hausa Princess, AISHA, from the ancient palaces and kingdoms of Northern part of the country, and from the cocoa-growing, rich sun-kissed waters and beaches of the South West comes the Yoruba Princess, TEMILOLA.
Each tribe has a distinct style from each other from the traditional dress to the head ties and hairstyles.

The Princess of Africa dolls use a different head sculpt than the Queens of Africa dolls, as illustrated in the side-by-side photos of Aisha and Nneka, above. Both doll lines are without articulation.
