SAY HELLO TO “KELESHE,” RUNWAY CURL’S DOLL WITH KINKY CURLS AND ALL THE #BLACKGIRLMAGIC
My Natural Doll was created to give little girls a doll to play with that looks like them. In a world where the dolls we play with and the role models we see shapes our perception of beauty and our self confidence, it is important that our little girls are constantly exposed to a reflection of themselves - beautiful dark skin and kinky hair like that which grows out of their own head.
Entrepreneur Mushiya Tshikuka created a doll for the youngins with natural hair and lots of spunk with her “Keleshe” doll. With the fight for representation coming in many different forms, Tshikuka thought it necessary and proper to have a doll for the curly-headed cutie pies, so they can learn to love the way they look and the way their hair naturally grows out of their heads. #Love it!
