When ever dolls are mentioned, the first thing that comes to one's mind is the normal light skinned Barbie doll we all know. It is hard to find a dark skinned doll, but I came across these beautiful Nigerian themed black skinned dolls, they represent everything Nigerian.
These dolls are known as "The Queens of Africa and Naija Princess dolls", made by the 43 years old man Taofick Okoya. According to Taofick, the idea to make these black dolls came to him, when he was searching for the best birthday gift for his niece. In the process, he discover that there were no "African dolls his little niece could relate to.
This motivated him to set up his own doll making business, he got the doll parts from China and had them assembled in beautiful patterned dresses in Nigeria.
These dolls are made to represent the three major ethnic groups in Nigeria, which are Hausa, Igbo and Yoruba. It is a great feeling for little black girls, to find a doll that Looks like them. See the beautiful dolls below;
