GENERAL QUESTIONS AND INFORMATION
What makes Double Dutch Dolls a multicultural brand?
Over a decade ago, our journey started with the launch of a remarkable collection of books and dolls. What makes them truly special? They feature a diverse range of African American, Hispanic, biracial, and multiracial characters. Our mission? To amplify the representation of multicultural children in the world of books and dolls, ensuring that every child sees themselves reflected in their everyday adventures. We believe that everyone deserves to feel seen and valued, and we're dedicated to providing that opportunity to those who have been underrepresented for far too long. Join us on this empowering journey of inclusivity and celebration!
Do the Double Dutch Dolls books and dolls go together?
People often wonder which came first, the books or the dolls, and honestly, we can't quite recall. The book series lays the foundation for the Double Dutch Dolls' story, introducing Kaila, Zaria, Alainna, Sascha, Trinity, and Kadence who come from African American, Hispanic, Bi-racial and multi-racial backgrounds. Through this captivating three-book series, these dynamic multicultural characters come to life as they navigate friendship, challenges, and the ups and downs of being tweens. During all the fun and mayhem, children learn valuable lessons about navigating the complexities of the world.
The dolls, inspired by the characters in the book series, take the experience one step further, allowing children to bring their favorite characters into the real world. Whether you choose to gift the dolls and books as a set or separately based on your child's interests, they are sure to spark joy and imagination. The Double Dutch Dolls offer an exciting opportunity for children to immerse themselves in a world of adventure and inspiration.
What is the appropriate age for the Double Dutch Dolls books?
While the Double Dutch Dolls book series is primarily recommended for children aged 8 and up, we understand that reading abilities can vary. Younger children may also find the storyline easy to follow, depending on their reading level. We believe that every child should have the opportunity to explore and enjoy our captivating stories, fostering their imagination and love for reading. So, whether your child is 8 or younger, we invite them to embark on an exciting journey with the Double Dutch Dolls and discover a world of adventure and inspiration.
Are the Double Dutch Dolls books also available as e-books?
The Double Dutch Dolls book series is available for kindle on Amazon.com.
Are Double Dutch Dolls good quality dolls?
Double Dutch Dolls are 18” all vinyl fashion dolls with pierced ears, a realistic child-like body and jointed limbs. They have extra joints in their elbows, knees and wrists so they can be posed in many natural-looking positions. They have wigged rather than rooted hair, which is superior. Wigged hair is either machine sewn onto a fabric wig cap or hand-knotted. The wig is then glued onto the doll’s head and the hair is cut and styled. This helps wigged hair better retain its hairstyle more easily than rooted hair. The dolls are beautiful and well made.
- They have compelling back-stories that teach values and good decision-making in an entertaining way that girls will embrace
- They reflect the beauty of multicultural girls and have customized skin tones and hair textures
- The dolls double as a keepsake that can be passed down
- They are less than the price of an American Girl doll, especially when factoring in the extras like clothing and ear piercing
- Unlike American Girl dolls and other less-expensive dolls on the market, Double Dutch Dolls are fully posable. Their elbows, wrists and knees are jointed so they can pose in many natural looking positions just like girls.Is your child a gymnast? Did you know our Kaila doll can do a cool herkie?
Why are the dolls so expensive?
Double Dutch Dolls not only offer endless fun and imagination but also amazing value for your money. Priced less than American Girl dolls, Double Dutch Dolls are the perfect choice for savvy shoppers. These all-vinyl dolls are not only beautiful but also easy to keep clean – just wipe away any dirt or stains. With jointed elbows, wrists, and knees, these dolls can be posed in natural and lifelike positions, adding an extra touch of realism to playtime. We've also taken great care in crafting their hair, ensuring that each doll showcases the diverse textures found among multicultural girls today. From Zaria's gorgeous 3-strand twist to Sascha's stunning shoulder-length bob and Kaila’s luscious long curls, our dolls offer upgraded features that make them even more enjoyable. Don't settle for less when you can have it all with Double Dutch Dolls.
What is the right age for my child to play with a Double Dutch Doll?
Double Dutch Dolls are designed with versatility in mind. While they are officially recommended for children aged 8 and up, their all-vinyl construction makes them suitable for younger girls as well, starting from around 5 or 6 years old. Younger girls often appreciate dolls that resemble themselves, and the realistic look of our multicultural all-vinyl dolls is sure to captivate their imagination. It's worth noting that dressing all-vinyl dolls can be slightly more challenging compared to soft body dolls,but it's usually not an issue for girls of 5 or 6 who have developed the dexterity to handle smaller doll clothing. Our Double Dutch Dolls' clothing is thoughtfully designed with convenient Velcro closures and zippers, making it easier for children to manage on their own. However, younger children may still benefit from adult assistance with dressing. We strive to provide dolls that grow with your child and enhance their playtime experience, ensuring that Double Dutch Dolls are a perfect fit for girls of various ages.
