Toy Fair Recap with Video


Entitled, Diversity and Inclusion Win the Toy Fair, the above video and associated article, which can be read at the link below, describe an array of new dolls and toys  presented at this year's Toy Fair.  With a stated focus on diversity, the video provides a brief glimpse at Mattel's Gabrielle Douglas doll; the first transgender doll, Jazz Jennings, by Robert Tonner; American Girl's first 18-inch male doll, Logan Everett, and another new line of 18-inch dolls, the City Girls from New York Doll Collection.  (Note: the dolls on NYDC's website do not look like the dolls displayed at Toy Fair).

  1. Thanks for sharing that with us.
    If Mattel make a black curvy Barbie doll with an Afro, I am definitely purchasing one.

    1. You're welcome, Arlette.

      Hopefully they will. I don't like the dress this one is wearing or the flat feet. I will probably rebody her.

  2. Thank-you!
    I think this is the first Barbie with an actual afro. Usually it's just curly hair that looks like an afro from a distance.

    1. It does appear they captured the true Afro texture this time.
