The One World Doll Project's new Prettie Girls! Tween Scene collection is heading to Walmart stores across the US.
The range of multi-cultural fashion and play dolls consists of the pre-teen versions of the four original Prettie Girls: Lena (African-American), Valencia (Hispanic), Dhara (South Asian) and Kimani (African). The line will also introduce two new dolls, Hana (Asian) and Alexie (Caucasian).
“Our vision in developing the Prettie Girls! Tween Scene collection was to provide young girls with dolls that represent their individual backgrounds, stories, styles, goals and inspirations,” said Trent T. Daniel, founder of The One World Doll Project.
“It is an honour to launch this new line, which endeavors to reflect America’s children, at Walmart, where America shops.”
The launch will be supported by a variety of in-store appearances by the dolls’ designer, Stacey McBride-Irby and the renowned artist and co-designer Robert Tonner.
The Prettie Girls! Tween Scene collection will launch in October 2015 at approximately 3,000 Walmart stores throughout the US.
