If you take a stroll through a toy store, you’ll be hard-pressed to find much diversity among the dolls. While things are getting better, many manufacturers are still going with the age-old beauty ideals when putting out product.
That’s why we are so excited about Malaville dolls, the brainchild of model Mala Bryan. Not only does the line incorporate a range of different skin tones, but they’re each donning some incredibly curly hair.
In an interview with Mic, Bryan admits she paid a lot of attention to the texture of the hair, choosing fibers that included both kinky curls and loose ones. This attention to detail is just one of the aspects of the Malaville dolls that makes them so special.
So who is Bryan trying to target with this doll collection? Everyone.
“Children of all races, for black/brown children with Afro/curly hair children to have dolls that they can relate to, and for children of other races to have diversity in their doll collection,” she told the site.
