NYTF 2016: Naturally Perfect Dolls

One thing I like most about Toy Fair is seeing brand new doll lines from companies that are just starting up. Naturally Perfect Dolls is one of those brands. Founded by Jason and Angelica Sweeting, the line fills a gap in today’s doll market. The idea came about when their daughter was upset that she didn’t have long, straight hair like her dolls and the ones advertised on television and in stores. The Sweeting’s set out to change that. After unsuccessfully finding a doll that looked like their daughter, they decided to make their own doll line. They launched a kickstarter in 2015 and earned a whopping $84,000 to produce this line of 18″ dolls.

The unique selling point of Naturally Perfect Dolls is that they have curly hair you can style and wash again and again. They also have sculpts that relate more closely to those with darker skin than other brands that use the same sculpt for all skin tones.

There are four characters in the line so far: Angelica, Brielle, Camryn and Kennedy. My favorite is Kennedy. I love her larger than life curls and adorable freckles. Brielle is also a fun one with tighter curls and much darker skin than the others girls. All four girls are pictured below.

My favorite, as I mentioned, is Kennedy.

My Flickr Album features close up shots of their pretty faces. All four dolls are available for pre-order on the official website. You can follow the line on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook. (Also, this seems like a great time to point out that I, personally, do not have an Instagram account. If you are following someone with my name, it’s not me.)

    These dolls are so cute. As an African American woman, I see them as perfect representations of dolls of my own race, but only one problem: You have to be as rich as Oprah to get them.

      They’re less expensive than most 18″ dolls at $85.00, so I don’t think the price is that bad. As a kid that had to save up for a year to purchase American Girl dolls, the price doesn’t phase me that much. 🙂

    Do you know if you can actually braid the hair into tight braids and then unbraid to the naturally curly hairstyles and back? I don’t see any images with the hair in any type of intricate braids. Just curly, wavy, and maybe some loose twists.

      Great question. I’m not sure of the answer, but if you ask them via social media or their website, I’m sure they’ll get back to you about it!
