Day 23- Black History

February 23, 2017
Black History Month

The Kenya doll was created in 1992 by Tyco.  The doll was to provide kids of color with a doll that reflected their appearance in skin color and features.  She also came dress in Kente cloth and was the ultimate African American hairstyling doll.  The theme was:  "Growing Up Proud, Just like me."

I did not purchase the Kenya doll since she was bigger than my fashion dolls.  However, I was so happy when they created her big sister Simone.  They never made a Kenya doll that would be the size of this fashion doll.  She came in 3 different skin tones.

Not original outfits

The cousins tomorrow
