When Kat alerted me to a post over on Tots Snob last year featuring unique Christmas gifts, I was immediately enamoured by these unusual multicultural dolls called Culture Club Kids and ordered a couple for a close friends daughter who was celebrating her birthday. She adores them and thankfully I’ve found a UK based store that’s stocking eight of the dolls, although these are my favourites.
Chizu, Ines, and Layla (pictured) are just under 23cm high and are made of soft tricot fabric with yarn hair, cute rosy lipped faces, and their own modern take on their multicultural outfits. If you’ve been looking for contemporary rag dolls of different origins these are a cool buy and well priced too – Â£9.25 each from the aptly named Multiculturaltoys4u where the mind will boggle with the unbelievably vast array of toys aimed at parents wanting to get toys that reflect their heritage and celebrate their differences.
I’ve had a several emails from readers asking about dolls. Do check out Kat’s roundup of hot doll buys for Christmas from last year as well as Blabla Kids dolls (the bambino has one), Baby Stella, and my mini roundup on budget rag dolls.
