Day 21- Black History Month

February 20, 2017

Black History Month

After a few years Stacey McBride-Irby left Mattel to start One World Dolls. In 2013, she created the Prettiest Girls  dolls. It was originally 4 dolls in the group that represented different multicultural background.

The dolls had personal stories and hobbies and goals and inspirations. 

Dahlia from New Delhi, India; Valencia from Mexico, City Mexico; Kumasi from Accra, Ghana, Lena from Charlotte, North Carolina. 

"Kimani is beautiful on the inside and out. The best friend anyone could ever have. You can trust Kimani with your ultimate secret. When it comes to needing the perfect outfit, to the right jewelry or for any fashion tip, Kimani is the go-to-girl. Nothing can shake Kimani from experiencing joy. She is a spit-fire, energetic free-spirit & marches to the beat of her own drum. Artistic and creative in nature, Kimani loves the arts and dreams of red carpet moments. Watch for her name in lights!".

"Lena is fun, fresh, confident, exciting and has made being smart cool! Her friends call her "The Wiz Kid" because whatever she puts her mind to, she will come out on top! A straight A student, spelling bee champ, and top fundraiser on the cheerleading squad, Lena always finds time to help her friends with their homework & class projects. Setting goals is key, next move: Class President. An up and coming entrepreneur, you better believe the next big invention will be Lena's.

"You can always count on Dahlia for a good, belly aching laugh!  With an energy that is electric, Dahlia is a natural born comedian, and loves being the center-of-attention.  With her brilliant mind and quick-wit, she is loved by all, especially by her cute puppy, Chance, that she rescued. Through her humorous and caring spirit, she is good at encouraging her friends to volunteer their time, skills & allowance money to give back to their communities.  Although she is gentle and caring in nature, she is a beast when it comes to saving the planet! Are you recycling?

"Bold & daring, loving life is Valencia's claim to fame! As a part of her passion for life, Valencia is all about working out and eating right! The athletic one is always focused on being her best self. Whenever you are around Valencia, be ready to move! She's a party all by herself! To be around her is so much fun because she is always moving and grooving to the hottest song, as a way to stay fit. She loves watching cooking shows to test her healthy "meals skills" on her friends. With her fun way of cooking healthy foods along with her exciting exercise tips, you can almost smell her own show coming to a network near you!".

  1. I also own all 4 Prettie Girl dolls, plus the Cynthia Bailey doll. I wish that they had continued with this line and had produced some of the OOAK dolls that were made for some celebs. I know they have the 17" Prettie Girls now, but I have never gotten into that size of doll.

  2. Great to hear that you have the dolls. I am waiting to see the new Tonner dolls.
