Asian Dolls

A frequent compliment L-- receives is that she looks like a doll. With her blonde hair and blue eyes, she has a bit of a model appearance and so we thought nothing of it. Until we realized that all of the dolls for sale in Asia - for that matter, most of the dolls for sale around the world - have light skin, blonde hair and blue eyes.

People are being quite literal when they tell L-- that she looks like a doll.

Their children do not look like dolls.

A friend living in Shanghai is now searching shops in America to find a doll that looks like her Asian children. Asian dolls are not for sale in China.
