Toy like me

"In the past couple of decades, toys have certainly come a long way in providing a greater range of diversity and representation for kids. The ability to purchase dolls, action figures and games that feature characteristics (whether it’s skin tone, hair texture, type of clothing or cultural uniqueness) is important to parents, gift givers and children. Toy companies have made efforts to broaden their brand and inventory, but the Makie Doll has definitely taken it one step further. [...] Makies embraces the beauty of individual expressiveness and offers toys that promote a healthy body shape which strays from the ultra-slender physique of Barbie." (Yona Williams, PickUrGift)
