https://apis.google.com/js/plusone.js The media, television and Hollywood sometimes portrays to young girls an image that is impossible to achieve.Girls as young as six may feel that they are too fat, or have the wrong skin or hair color. Our future needs confident young women who are comfortable with their looks. It is important to teach your young child about self image and tell her that she is beautiful just the way she is.
COAD (Children of America Dolls) has introduced a beautiful line of dolls representing the ethnic diversity in the United States. Each doll can be used as a tool to teach your child about the four main ethnic groups and encourage her to feel better about herself.
Representing the Asian, Hispanic, African-American, and Caucasian cultures, Children of America Dolls (COAD™) are one-of-a-kind exquisitely designed and handcrafted, and are fashioned in trendy clothing and accessories, reflecting their distinct personalities and style. Each one is beautifully wrapped in a box embossed with her name, and individual personalized tag. They stand 13-inches tall, and are made with soft cloth bodies, vinyl extremities, and rooted hair.
Parents, schoolteachers, ethnic groups and other gift enthusiasts will find that these culturally diverse dolls represent something that has never been offered before – until now.
“Children of America Dolls (COAD™) mirror today’s youth in their appeal and authentic ethnic diversity, most specifically reflected in the latest US 2010 Census,” states Mary Eubanks, creator, founder and retired Los Angeles school teacher and counselor. “They are designed to deliver a message about the value of developing positive self-esteem, personal nurturing, and the importance of facilitating healthy early childhood development,” she says.
Children of America Dolls make a wonderful gift this Christmas for the special little girl in your life. For further information, or to order Children of America Dolls (COAD™) online go to: www.coadolls.com. They retail for $34.99 each.
