Miss Gioia

Friday, March 16, 2007


I have been keeping my eyes open lately for Asian baby dolls for Miss G. I found a pretty cool baby in the Hong Kong airport once, so I have been on the lookout in airport stalls ever since. Mainland China airports, however, seem to have less attractive stock. On my way home from Shanghai tonight, I wandered by the toy section of a store in the HongQiao airport. A whole wall of dolls and almost every single one was blond and blue eyed.

I did find this one dark-haired doll hidden amongst the crowd.

Who had the bright idea to market the whore baby to the under four set? Why is it that out of all of those dolls, the only semi-Asian one I could find looks like she just strolled out of a hip hop club?

We have and love Ling Ling - I am not sure Claire realizes that she is not in fact Chinese looking in the least!

Found you while googling around for some "doll-hair' advice, and thank you for sharing it...
I am also totally freaking out about some of the dolls marketed to little ones. Yeck!
