Selma's Dolls Review (Selma's Dolls)

Selma's Dolls
What It Is

Start a conversation with your little one about accepting and learning from people of all different backgrounds with this doll. This collection of rag-dolls includes a Muslim friend (Ameena), Mexican-American friend (Lola) and a friend with Down syndrome (Annie). Ameena is wearing the color green, as green has a number of traditional associations and meanings in Islam, while Lola has on a Mexican-inspired print and Annie is rocking a blue and yellow butterfly pattern that represents awareness for people with Down Syndrome.

Is It Fun?

We enjoyed these dolls. We like that they are made out of soft and snuggly materials like Jersey Knit fabric that is easily spot clean, hug and hold as well as allows them to sit upright. Plus, we like that each doll's clothing print has a nod to the olive branch which is a universal symbol of peace. Also, we enjoyed the dolls' storybook, "First Day of School," a magical story where Selma overcomes her first day of school fears through the help of her new friends (Ameena, Annie and Lola).

Who It’s For

The Selma's Dolls collection is designed for kids ages 2 and up. We also recommend this doll for anyone who loves dolls, especially rag-dolls, and imaginary play. This doll is also ideal for anyone who loves exploring differences and diversity.
