Race in dolls

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

Do you buy dolls for your daughter that are the same race as you are?

I'm shopping for a Little Mommy Doctor doll for my daughter. I can ge them from Amazon for $50, free shipping. I found one on Ebay that the starting bid is only $10 and the shipping is $7. It is new in box, but the dolly is black. I hesitate to purchase it because I'm not sure if my daughter would perfer a dolly that looks like her or if she would even care if her dolly was dark skinned.

Yes, she does play like she is their mommy. She is very blonde with blue eyes. All of her other dolls are white, but that is by chance. I have purchased all her dolls second hand up to this point. She has no other colored dolls so I don't know if she'll love this dolly as much. She will be 4 soon.

Does she pretend she is their mommy? If so she may prefer one that looks more like her.

I don't have any girls but when I was little I had some dolls that looked like me but I also liked having dolls with blue eyes and blonde hair an white skin. I had a good mix but my mom tells me I usually asked for "brown babies" lol

My daughter doesn't care about what race her dolls are. She has dolls of different races, I just go with whatever doll she picks.

I usually buy whatever doll is wearing purple, because that's my daughters favorite color and what she really cares about!

Okay. Or maybe I'll take her to the store and give her a choice between which dolly she would like better and if she grabs the white one, then i'll know.
