ethinic dolls

post #1 of 9

Hello everyone!

I've been waiting for these boards to come up (hurray they're here!) to ask about the email address given in the last issue of mothering for the ethnic dolls. It was a little article type thing printed in the news section of the magazine about a company in south or central america, I tried emailing them for the information about their dolls, but the address came back with errors. Maybe I should just call, but I was hoping to email. Has anyone else contacted them or found out the correct email address?

Love Always,

dolls

I know the blurb you saw and tried contacting them myself without luck. I found their dolls at www.earthbaby.com (Is it alright to say that?) though. They are the same exact dolls by the same Columbian company. We got our already. They are beautiful. They are sewn really nice (Not like the doll we got from Brazil a few years back. Only mention the country because I cant remember the companies name) I cna't wait to give them to my dd! Hope that helps.

Good luck,
Marilene

Thank you so much! I have been waiting to get some reply about this and I am so happy there is a webpage where I can buy them!

I'm wondering, though, most of them look like they have really big lips and mouths. I wonder if it just looks strange because of the quality of the pictures or something. How are yours? Do they have big lips like that and does it look right?

Love Always,

The lips dont bother me. I thnk they add a certain charm. However, I think Switzerland, Columbia, Sicily and Mexico were most porpotioned in the photo. I can't stress the beauty of the clothesn my dolls and I have to admit that I love that the Male has a penis. My daughter often checks for this on dolls since we have a new babe and all of the baby making stuff is very real to her now.

Glad it was the right site for dolls.

Take Care,
Marilene

Hello!

I think I would be OK with the lips, I just thought I would ask. I think they probably stand out more in the pictures than they would on the doll in real life.

$90 is a lot for us, but they are really the kind of dolls I would like my girls to have, from where and who makes them to what they look like.

What country did you get?

Love Always,

Dolls

I know what you mean about $90 being a lot for you, us too! I just really try to support companies with humane labor etc... and am very happy to give my daughter something without plastic and that is not commercial. I am hoping this will disenchant her with the cousins Barbie! (I say this with fingers crossed)

I am way more pleased with these dolls than the BF doll we had before. She fell apart within a month. Oh, you asked which dolls we got. I was intending to get the Japanese ones since we are part Japanese but I ended up getting the last East Indian set. It was a hard choice.

Have a super holiday season!

Hi!

I totally agree about supporting companies like Amamanta. For me I especially feel a connection with South and Central America and I try to do what I can to help them from the imperialist corporations that are so destroying things there. I send environmental letters from biogems.com.

They don't have east Indian dolls on the website anymore. I'm considering asking about them, since we practice a vedic religion, but I might get the Columbia ones or the Switerland (they just look fun).

I understand about the barbies! Radha hasn't encountered them yet and I'm glad!

Love Always,

I don't know if you would like Waldorf style dolls, but they can be found on ebay all the time. If you see someone's dolls that you like, email them and ask if they can make you an ethnic doll. Most moms will, and i fyou have something of value to trade, you may be able to trade for it!

I just wanted to comment on the dolls, I followed the link and they are gorgeous!

I also wanted to mention Groovy Girls dolls. They are very cute, inexpensive, multicultural soft dolls. I have seen them at Zainy Brainy and if you enter in Groovy Girls on a search engine, they will show up as well
