Be sure to watch the video feed, it saddens me to see little AA girls choose white dolls - just think how they must feel about themselves
This picture is from the article. If I saw this at Walmart, I'll go crazy and buy a couple Nikis to rebody. I wonder why shes on clearance? The response from Walmart does not makes sense! The ballerina dolls are always around until the next ballet line comes in... Doesnt matter what season it is they are always there!
'A Walmart spokeswoman, who could not verify the exact store shown in the photo, said that the price change on the Teresa doll was part of the chain's efforts to clear shelf space for its new spring inventory. '
Looks like they're calling Niki, Teresa... unless Teresa is also on clearance
Around February I was at Target getting more Fashionistas and saw this..
I was tempted to get her but all I wanted was her pretty head, which look a lot like my Mermaid Tale Niki.. so I left her there
Are the stores in a rush? These dolls are the new 2010 line. Didnt they just came out a few months ago? I can understand if its a doll released last year and needed room for new stock!
Goes to show you AA dolls dont sell well...nothing about racism/discrimination someone mentioned recently at a post on thedollcafe ;-)
