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 was when I started my journey to find a biracial, copper color and curly-haired doll. Since mixed-race children are so beautiful and unique, finding a similar one can be hard. After looking at many dolls, I did find some that could pass as biracial or multicultural Here is kidsplayandcreate’s list of the best biracial dolls on the market.

Why buy my child a biracial baby doll/multicultural baby doll?
Selfe esteem. It can build their self-esteem and help them see themselves with a positive self-image. Children connect with their dolls. It can be upsetting when a child has a bunch of dolls, and none of them even looks a little like them.
They might think they are too different, don’t belong, or are not pretty. Biracial/multicultural 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.
What is a good price for a biracial/multicultural doll?
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-$50. Once you find that doll that fits your needs, search for the best deal.
Where can I buy a biracial doll, a multicultural doll?
Unfortunately, that aren’t many stores that carry biracial dolls. I can say that toy manufacturers notice 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 researching, I found that some are available on eBay and specialty sites like Etsy.
I hope that this list of dolls helped you on your journey to find that special biracial/multicultural doll.
Remember, you may not find an exact match for your special little girl, but maybe one with some of the same features.
Hopefully, as time passes, toy makers will recognize that so many children come from different ethnicities and cultures and start making more dolls to represent that growing population.
