Biracial dolls

Oh. My. G-d.

I discovered biracial dolls when I was doing some research for my application to SwirlCamp! which is a program run by Swirl. Swirl is a “national multi-ethnic organization that challenges society’s notions of race through community building, education, and action.”

I am very tempted to buy my future, as yet not conceived children a “Willough” doll, a half-Hispanic, half-Caucasian doll advertised on RealKidz. But it may be more practical to buy “Remsen,” the African-American/Asian doll for my new baby cousin. Her mother is Filipino and her father is a dark-skinned Dominican.

Honestly, I think my children will end up looking more like the African-American/Caucasian doll, Tillary. Them curly hair genes are fierce.

  1. It is taking all my willpower not to purchase these little dolls for myself. And I don’t have kids yet. What kind of willpower will I have when I actually do? Hmm, hmm. My sister will be very happy to hear you liked the profile pic. It took many (too many) shots. Luckily, I was paying her. Unluckily, I hate having my photo taken.
