Every industry has gone through some massive transformations over the last years. The toy industry now offers dolls available in a wide array of skin tones, yet none are culturally close to India or any other South Asian heritage. We have come so far and are determined to change that. Our mission is to provide every brown girl with a doll that she can identify with, see herself represented, and develop a sense of pride, power, and confidence.
At Culturorama, we are more than just creating toys for kids. We are here to create sustainable, organic, heirloom quality products that you and your kids will love and cherish forever. We aim to promote inclusivity and Indian culture through our brown dolls.
All our products are made in India by all-women artisan groups and we are proud to be associated with them for creating beautiful handmade products that are safe for both children and the environment.
Culturorama is the result of our brainstorming and much ruminating. The idea is to create a doll that is representative of our culture and celebrates Indian beauty. Come on board with us now, and together, let's make our children's toy boxes more diverse one doll at a time!
Shopping from us is taking a step forward for every South Asian child to feel represented in a culturally diverse world, and helping self-sustaining women in India build a better life for themselves.
"Kids are innately imaginative towards their toys and even develop emotional bonds sometimes. That bond should teach us something. And it should be to make them proud of themselves and envision their bright tomorrow in a culturally-diverse world."
We see progress in raising awareness about diversity and representation, yet there is much left to be done. And our soft multicultural dolls are looking to gauge this gap and amplify opportunities for young children to experience an open, more diverse culture.
