    I think it’s a start. Everything has to start somewhere! It’s never to late!

    Why should we it took too long for them to decide. There are black doll makers I would support because they were there when there was no other.

    Better Late than Never! This change is greatly needed on every level of the toy industry. I wish the change had come during my childhood, but congratulations to the current and future generation of children. Happy to see the dolls represent beauty as realistic as life.
