Biracial Doll Reviews and Buyers Guide
I am a mother of an adorable biracial little girl who loves to play with dolls. I have purchased both African-American and Caucasian dolls for her to play with but was able to find one that looks quite like her. Like every other little girl, she wanted a doll that looked like her. This is when I started my journey to find a biracial, copper color and curly haired doll. Let me tell you, it wasn’t easy. Since mixed-race children are so beautiful and unique, it can be very hard finding one that looks similar to them. I did find some websites that allow you to special order biracial dolls, but they were costly. So, I continued my search. After looking at many dolls, I did find some that could pass as bi-racial. Here is kidsplayandcreate’s list for the best biracial dolls on the market that won’t break your piggy bank.

Why Buy my Child a Biracial Doll?
It can build their self-esteem and help them with seeing themselves with a positive self-image. Children connect with their dolls. When a child has a bunch of dolls and none of them even looks a little like them, it can be upsetting. They might start to think that they are different, don’t belong or even that their not pretty. Biracial children are so unique and beautiful and it’s important that they feel that way. None of these dolls may look quite like your child, but hopefully, you see one that may resemble them a little. Maybe you see one that has the same type of hair, eyes or even skin tone.

Dolls can be expensive but you can also get great deals on Amazon and other sites. The dolls listed on this site run from $15-$100. Once you find that dolls that fits your needs, search around to get the best deal.
Where Can I Buy a Biracial Doll?
Unfortunately, that aren’t many stores that carry biracial dolls. I can say that toy manufacturers are noticing that not everyone is the standard blonde haired blue eyed Barbie doll and are coming out with more dolls of different ethnicities. All of the dolls listed on this site are available on Amazon. After doing some research I found that some are available on ebay and specialty sites such as etsy.
I hope that this list of dolls helped you on your journey to find that special doll. Remember, you may not find an exact match to your special little girl, but maybe one that has some of the same features. Hopefully, as time goes on toy makers will recognize that there are so many children that come from different ethnicities and cultures and start making more dolls to represent that growing population.
