Dolly Diversity

Dolly Diversity

Dolls are like little people, so it makes sense that they should reflect all the glorious diversity of the human world. Sadly, just like their full scale counterparts, these dolly minorities tend to be overlooked. Here are a collection of posts designed to show the huge variety of dolls out there, if you know where to look for them.

  1. So Kmart (in Australia, I think) had a line of dolls with disabilities (link included at bottom) as well as baby dolls with down syndrome. And Mattel has added more wheelchairs and artificial limbs (legs are out now; arms have prototypes but not been released), as well as dolls with vitiligo and finally released a bald Barb to the general public in their fashionistas range (and different body types as well as a wider array of skins tones and hair types). It's a great time for diversity in the doll world.

    Also, there is a doll of Cary Grant (My Girl Friday), another famous secret bisexual.

    2. Thank you for the notes and link! This post could really do with a huge overhaul to be honest - I just imported it here from an even older blog so, yeah, it's more than a bit out of date now... :)


I love to hear from you, so please don't be shy!
