Our Motto is "Love the Skin You're In!" and our tag-line is "Image is Everything" because it is important that children and adults of color see themselve in a positive light. We feature dolls of color that are hand made and manufactured from artist and designers from around the world.
Sandra Epps, Founder created the Detroit Doll Show in 2011 because she believed it was critical for Women and Children to see themselves in the products that they use. Dolls teach children about themselves and the world around them. Playing with dolls help children develop cognitive, fine motor and self-help skills. Often times then not some brown teenagers and children struggle to love themselves because of the negative stereotype protrayed in media, in addition to society's depiction of "beauty."
The Detroit Doll Show is about celebrating diversity, culture, fashion, YOUR BEauty and having FUN.
