People think I am crazy for even thinking of such a concept but when its out on the market I will be waiting in the wings to say I told You so to all the haters! I have several friends who have children of mixed backgrounds and as far as I know there are no toys on the market for this group. Dolls come in 3 colors Beige, Light Brown and Dark Brown. When you have a child specifically a girl who wants a doll and her mom is white and dad is black which one do you choose? if you choose one at all. With the amount of interracial marriages, couples and unions in this country sooner or later someone is going to have to deal with this issue. Gone are the days when people were scared to date, or marry outside of their race, gone are the days when there were just white dolls on the shelves and that's what you bought regardless of the race of its receiver.. A lot of children are being born from these unions and new races and ethnicity's are being created. I give it 50-1500 years before the Census could possibly catch up and identify all of the races. I know its going to change and I just hope I am around to see it...
