dd (4,5) has a light brown skin tone and curly hair - just like her dad (he is african-american, i am white-european).
now she wishes for a doll that looks just like her.that's not so easy though! the waldorf dolls that i found are either totally white, totally black or hispanic with streight hair. some of the dolls even have kind of an orange skin tone.
i need a doll with a brown teint and black curls.
does anyone know where to get those kind of dolls??
and then make my own. doesn't seem to require too much talent or time. i originally was in love with the Bamboletta dolls until I discovered that it's virtually impossible to get your hands on one. i think there are some etsy sellers that also sell waldorf dolls of many colors and hairstyles.
unfortunately it's not quiet yet what i had in mind.
so i am still lookinhg. if anyone has more links, please dont hesitate to post them here.
they are the same doll different pictures the lady does not make the doll but made by http://www.etsy.com/shop/figandme she does custom dolls so if the hair is too light in color you can ask for a darker brown or more curly hair, longer/shorter, same with color of skin. if you see a doll you like but it just aint right. like the 2 links i sent you in a pp. the one who take custom orders you can say i like this skin tone, this style of hair and this color of hair.
I had someone on Etsy make one for my babe- who is also mixed african american (dad), middle eastern jewish (me).
I just found a seller whose dolls I liked and then made a special request.
Here is one with lighter skin but nice curly brown hair!
i had my dd's custom made from www.bamboletta.com and she is still going strong! i think she joined our family 2 or 3 years ago and is beautiful and was just to my specifications.
another etsy site that may be of interest... it's a site that sells dolls in varioous skin tones that are ready to finish, check out what some customers have created.
check these links at magic cabin. You might find something here.
