Virtual Event: Black Toys and Toymakers, The Shindana Story

Baby Nancy, Shindana's First Doll

Virtual Event

February 26, 1 p.m. EST

In 2020, The Strong inducted Baby Nancy into its National Toy Hall of Fame. Crafted with Black children in mind, Baby Nancy is the first Black doll that found mass popularity at home and abroad. Learn about Shindana Toys—the Black-owned company behind the groundbreaking doll—at a special, virtual discussion with a panel of experts on its history and significance. Hosted by The Strong’s Christopher Bensch, the 40-minute discussion will delve into the story of Shindana Toys’ creation and evolution, their role in the community, their products, and examples of Black entrepreneurship. It will be followed by a question-and-answer session.

The above announcement is from The Strong Museum's website where you can visit to learn more about the event and to register here.
