[Double Dutch Dolls are a new line of 18” articulated fashion dolls w/hella PoC representation. Personally, I’m looking forward to adding probably a lot of these to my doll family! —MOD]
"Navigating the halls of middle school can be tricky. But, 14-year old identical twins Kaila and Zaria Bradley, known to everyone as the Double Dutch Dolls, seem to have it all figured out. At least until they overhear their archenemy Trinity say, “Kaila’s only good for looks and Zaria’s only good for books”.
Now the girls feel they have something to prove and attempt to pull off the greatest Double Dare of all-time, secretly trading places. It may be the oldest twin trick in the book but the Double Dutch Dolls plan to do it in style.
Can Fashionista Kaila transform herself into a star student? Can Classic, Cool Zaria trade in her soccer cleats for designer fashion? Or, will competition permanently tear the twins apart?
Identical twins Kaila and Zaria are also available in 18” Fashion dolls. With these African-American dolls, based on the book characters bring home even more fashion and fun. Coming soon, Hispanic dolls, Biracial dolls, and Multiracial dolls based on Alainna, Trinity, Sascha, and Kadence.
Double Dutch Dolls is a line of multi-cultural dolls, books, and accessories for girls ages 8 and up. Double Dutch Dolls are African-American, Hispanic, Biracial and Multiracial. They represent every girl. Their stories bring to life the experiences, drama and fun of today’s tween/teen girl. Which Double Dutch Doll are you?”
Here is the website of the BJD maker that made the doll you were asking about. It’s a Nabarro Booth (limited edition I think), I can’t find any for sale however there is a flickr pool of their dolls and some more info on DOA with links here! I only found out through reverse image search and some digging so I don’t know anything else but I hope that helps :)
[thanks for the info, doomburgerdoodles, and thanks to nikii-the-slayerette who also recommended reverse image search. I was posting from my phone earlier so it didn’t occur to me to try that… but I bet Chrome for Android has that capability, right? anyway, something to remember for the future. oh, and I see from the notes that the text on the images says “Faceup”, apparently (which I can totally see now). before, it looked to me like “Lacey” or maybe “Jacey”… which would explain why I couldn’t find anything relevant LOL. ^^ —MOD]
She’s amazing :O does anyone know what doll this is??
does anyone recognise her? she’s beautiful, but I can’t place the style & the font on the name is hard for me to read for a google.
EDIT: thanks for all the feedback, everyone. this is a Nabarro “Booth”, and it looks like she was a LE *sad trumpet sound*
Misee Harris reveals the racism of Target’s “Our Generation Dolls.”
it’s definitely problematic and biased that Our Generation does not have (as far as I am aware) any sort of PoC doll in one of the ‘deluxe’ sets like Sidney Lee is shown here. that said… at my local Target and online, there’s a price difference of about USD$10 between the ‘deluxe’ sets w/accessories & the basic dolls like Abrianna. that said, this is not the first video I’ve seen from someone who says that the deluxe & basic dolls are about the same price, so there may be some slight regional variation for in-store pricing…. which would seem weird, but I guess it’s possible?
(Our Generation is made by Battat exclusively for Target)
Positively Perfect Divah doll. I’m thinking about seeing if there’s an AG body with a skin tone to match to re-body her, because her cloth body a) looks like she’s wearing a perpetual t-shirt, as you can see b) is very floppy, and she can not stand on her own. Even in a doll stand, she slouches.
Conto alla rovescia per la release di Ruby in resina color cioccolato!
