my dd (5) loves to play with barbies. since she is african/american-european she would like to have a black/brown barbie too.

 

which shops do sell african-american barbie dolls in the LA area?

 

thanks already!

Shouldn't every toy store  sell them? Wouldn' t that be racist if they didn't?

The toysrus on La Cienega almost always has a good selection. I buy a bunch of them there every year at Christmas. I doubt it is seasonal because the area South of there is a fairly affluent African-American neighborhood.

Hi,

 

I'm not sure if you are still looking for the Barbie's but I have 3 collector Barbie's and 1 Imana?

 

Im clearing out a lot of personal pieces that I have collected to sell reasonably.  If interested please contact me at dmwfaith@hotmail.com.  I can provide pictures.

 

Thanks
