When you were a kid, what color was your doll?

Wednesday, June 17, 2009


If you were born in the 1970s, it's a good chance you played with dolls -- all toys -- that were white, and designed for white children (this pic is from 1970 NYC).
That's not an inherently bad thing, but it does bring to mind what kind of aspirations you had as a kid, how you saw yourself, yes, self-esteem.
Could it be that the role-play you immersed yourself in plays a role in your life today? Could it help explain your choice in friends, your choice in friends? Could it have caused you to overcompensate even? If so, what does it say about today's children? A bunch of interesting questions here.

Lol, the green G.I. Joes were awesome. I myself had a toy Yoda (green also).

Ah, yes I had the white dolls. Didn't receive my first black doll till I was 12, then I was almost too old to play with her...
