Just a quick note. I recently learned about this great company called Pattycake Doll Company, that specializes in dolls that aren't...mainstream.
You know, boy dolls. Asian dolls. Multicultural dolls.
I haven't purchased from this company so I can't vouch for the quality. But I know that hunting down dolls of color can be a challenge. In our house we only have one doll set, the Plan Toy Doll House Asian Family. I think it's important to have dolls that reflect a variety of faces and cultures, but our boys tend to prefer animals at this point.
Here's the link to Pattycake's Asian dolls page: http://www.pattycakedoll.com/asian_dolls
Have you ordered from Pattycake before?
