BROCKTON, MASS. (WHDH) - A Brockton-based doll company is giving its dolls a new, vice-presidential look.
Fusion Dolls is now selling an all-white outfit inspired by Vice President Kamala Harris in honor of her historic election. The suit is modeled after the one Harris wore during her victory speech.
“I know many little kids look up to her. Adults look up to her as well,” owner Widline Pyrame said. “She’s paving the way for a lot of us.”
The company sells dolls with Black and brown skin and curly hair because the owner said that as a child she never saw a doll that looked like her.
“When young girls see my dolls I want them to see themselves. And I also want them to know that they are enough and I want them to love who they are,” Pyrame said.
Pyrame said that she wants her dolls to remind girls they can dream big and achieve anything.
“No matter what your skin complexion, no matter what your hair texture is, it’s important for you to really believe in and love who you are,” she said.
All the dolls have hair that can be braided and twisted to teach young kids how to do their own hair.
