Holiday Gift Guide Gifts for Children: Mixis

There’s more to girls than just blond hair and blue eyes, so why is it so hard to find dolls that celebrate the diversity and backgrounds of all girls out there? As a mom to bi-racial children, it’s not an easy task to find dolls they can relate to. Sure they have some blond hair blue eyed Caucasian dolls, but it would be great if they could also play with dolls that look a little more like them.

A Canadian company has since come to realize that there are girls of mixed race out there and they should be represented in dolls as well! Mixis is a group of mixed race dolls with realistic curves who wear the latest trends and fashion from around the world. Right now there are four available dolls: Rosa, Emerald, Opal and Houda. Each doll has feature and skin tones that are mixed from two or more racial groups.

Mixis dolls are great! My daughter received the Opal doll and was thrilled when she opened up the box. Her exact words were “Mommy she has the same hair and is the same color as me!” she was thrilled! Opal is Nigerian and British and came in a keepsake package wearing a beautiful casual dress, espadrilles and a purse to match.

Not only are the Mixis Dolls designed with various skin tones, realistically painted eyes and facial characteristics and a naturally proportioned body, but they also have high quality clothing and outfits. The dolls are priced higher than competitor dolls (starting at $49.99) you’ll find in stores this season but the ability to have such a doll is priceless.

Mixis also carries limited edition dolls that are packaged with a special denim outfit and a certificate. Additional clothing packages may be purchased as well. To learn more about Mixis dolls and where you children can learn more about the dolls culture and international adventures visit www.mixis.com.

Right now Mixis has a great promo code going on as well, if you type in the code mixisrock you can get the dolls as the price of $29.99 or purchase outfits for $15!!!

I would love to give Emerald to my niece, who almost never finds a doll who resembles her.
