11 Adorable Black Dolls For Baby

Yesterday, I wrote a post “Should My Black Daughter Have More Black Dolls?” so it’s not surprising that I spent all night searching the World Wide Web for some darling dark-skinned dolls. I have to be honest, the first ones I came across were not so appealing.

For example, the Ikea Lekkamrat doll is pretty hideous (click at your own risk), but they played fair by designing the white version just as cringe worthy. Promps to Ikea for their dark-skinned nurse, chef and scuba diver finger puppets though (at least I think the little dude in blue is a scuba diver!). Very cute. I don’t think I’ve even ever seen a black scuba diver on TV, so rock on Ikea.

Here’s the 11 most adorable black dolls I found for my daughters!

  • Berta 1 of 11

    For some reason I'm stuck on the idea of these 9-inch cuties as book ends in a nursery.  Cute, right?

    Retro and modern, definitely my favorite doll of the lot.
