South African black doll breaks the mold in high style



Johannesburg (AFP) - She is black and trendy, and young South African girls are learning to love her.

Meet Momppy Mpoppy, who is a step ahead of other black dolls across Africa who are often dressed in traditional ethnic clothes.

Decked out in the latest fashions and sporting an impressive afro, complete with a tiara, Momppy could play her own small part in changing the way that black children look at themselves ...

Sweet! She could have been a bit more colored. Nonetheless it’s definitely a good thing!

Also, the founder and business owner that are manufacturing the dolls is a Black woman. Again have a Black woman done excellent, and this time given joy to millions of little Black girls around the world.:toast:

Coger thanks for posting. I have two grand daughters and found it very difficult getting black dolls for them. I know they are some black folks who don't see anything wrong in giving their girls a white doll. (Yet you will never see a white child with a black doll).
