Our mission is to
provide the doll buying public with top quality dolls,
designed to inspire pride and proclaim the flawless
beauty in African American dolls, with ethnic features.
Over the years African American doll manufactures have
come and gone, never really making a long lasting
impression in the black doll market. There is no
presence of African American’s mass producing African
American dolls on the international doll market.
Doll consumers want African inspired dolls designed and
manufactured in the true image of us by us.
Options for parents who want to buy their children black
dolls are very slim. The doll buying public is
unable to find dolls that realistically define the
African and African American culture on the shelves in
major department stores. Some of the black dolls
that are found are subliminally flawed and as a result,
there is an ever growing demand for African Americans to
design dolls that create pride and stimulate achievement
in African American culture.
Dolls are very important in the development of a child’s
self esteem. Dolls help children develop a healthy
self image which encourages success in all aspects of
their life’s journey.
Dolls were the first plaything invented in ancient
Egypt. Dolls were used as playmates, teaching
tools and they represented cultural ideas that promote
high self esteem and independence. Afnique will bring a
new life to the doll industry with an array of diverse
dolls with powerful expressions of African and African
American lifestyles. We will explore the allure of
African and African American history, past and present.
Our utmost desire is to give children and collectors of
all nationalities the privilege of learning about the
true proud heritage of people through Afnique dolls.
Afnique dolls now offer handmade soft sculptured dolls
designed as beautiful, artful, home accessories and doll
collector pieces. As we build our brand we will
aggressively seek out manufacturers to create vinyl
replicas of our patented pieces. When we
transition into vinyl dolls we will be able to supply
our customers with affordable dolls designed especially
by us for use.
Each piece will be signed and numbered. Some
dolls on this site are one of a kind, some are limited
editions, and some are open editions. Our dolls
prices range from $49.95 to $600.
Custom orders will be limited and priced as high as
