Default Where to find dolls with braids/cornrows?


I've recently started having my 2 year old daughter's 3C hair cornrowed. Her braids look adorable and I just love the low-maintenence... no more morning hair battles!

I'd like to get her a toddler-friendly ethnic doll with braids to play with but I am having no luck so far. I want her to develop a positive self-image and I also figured she can put barettes on her "baby" while I'm putting hers on.

Does anybody have any suggestions on where I can find one? I'm not quite ready to invest in an American Girl yet. Honestly, I was amazed that cornrowed dollies were so hard to find!

Best Wishes,

I have seen dolls with braids, but not cornrows. Of course the doll we have with ropy braids is very white with white blond hair. Go figure. By the way, how long do the cornrows last for your 3c daughter and how much did they cost?

I live in Los Angeles and it was 40 bucks and they looked messy after 2 days. Sorry to guano your thread.

Well, I've been paying around $25 but the stylist is my niece so she's probably giving us a "family discount" (if anybody's looking for a braider in the DC area, let me know and I'll pass along her info -- she does nice work and she's really patient with squirmy kids).

My little one does start to halo within a few days, despite my efforts to tame it with Curly Qs, shea butter, tea tree oil and Elucence (LOVE that stuff!). That said, the braids hold up reasonably well for close to 2 weeks.

Suggestions for dolls with braids and not necesarily cornrows are most welcome. I hope to hear from some more folks soon!

Why don't you just buy a doll with a big head and cornrow its hair?
I like work. It fascinates me. I sit and look at it for hours.
