Toy Box: Kwanzaa Toy

As part of Kwanzaa celebrations, children can receive presents. The gifts are not typical of those given at Christmas, but are more geared toward learning or honoring heritage. Many kids get books, music, or garments. However, when I was shopping, I came across a unique Barbie that grabbed my attention.

The Kwanzaa Collector Barbie is a special edition doll that costs $38. The beautiful doll is draped in an African ensemble with long dark tresses. While $38 may seem a bit steep for a Barbie, reinforcing the beauty of someone's heritage and traditions through a doll can have a powerful impact.

Of course so can hearing positive wisdom from their parents, family and community, which seems to be part of the purpose of Kwanzaa. I was just happy to see Barbie branching out and celebrating a variety of cultures. Tell us what you think of the Kwanzaa Collector Barbie.
