The Angelica Doll — United States
For Angelica Sweeting, creating this doll was her way of helping her daughter, Sophia, to accept her Black skin, hair and features. She began to develop the doll after her daughter admitted that she wanted to look like Barbie and have long, blond hair. The final product is a beautiful doll that stands at 18 inches tall and has kinky hair that can be washed and styled.
