hello

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??

yup, this was me thinking the same thing a couple weeks ago. after much research, i have decided to buy a kit from here http://www.weirdollsandcrafts.com/wa...ll-making.html

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.

hoping for a !

are you thinking something along these lines?

http://www.etsy.com/listing/58959961...essbloomer-set
and http://www.etsy.com/listing/47566107...ndfelted-shawl

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!
