When you say a black doll, what do you mean? Something like a barbie/Bratz, or a pretend baby?

If it's a barbie type doll you want then the Lottie dolls are ok. www.lottie.com/us/buy/?page=store

Available from amazon etc.

Ikea sell them, soft cloth dolls.

Not that this helps but in the 1970's I remember my friend's collection of Sasha dolls which had all different hair and skin colours and were just so gorgeous. I was so jealous of them!

I think the 70s were good in some ways for different coloured dolls. The Pippa range had a black pippa type doll called marie and an Asian one (with white hair I think which was strange) called britt.

Completely off thread but my parents bought me a black baby doll one xmas, I was probably 2 or 3.
I think it was very forward thinking in the 1960's.

Good luck and hope you find what you are looking for.

Yes in a way it seems harder to get a Black doll now. But at least you have all given me options
