Selma Dolls, Ameena
(Selma’s Dolls $39.99)
We’ve had dolls from many cultures and ethnicities. Ameena, is a first! She is a fabric doll wearing a hijab, in the tradition of Muslim women. Like the other dolls in the collection she comes with a little book about differences and friendship. The book is a bit older in concept than the doll that looks like a doll for toddlers. We should note that the hijab, the traditional head covering is not generally worn by very young children. The age for wearing them varies in different Muslim communities. That said, we do think it's important for children to have dolls that reflect their own culture and Ameena is certainly that.
