Representation matters.

From Barbies to baby dolls, there's nothing quite as special for little kids as having dolls who look just like them... but unfortunately, there aren't nearly enough diverse dolls out there for that to be possible for every child. But now that we're finally making some progress in that area, we get to see what an impact representation really has on the youngest members of our society. 

For example: One little girl on TikTok, who was able to get a Black doll who has albinism, just like she does. In the video, we get to see the way she reacted when she saw the doll for the first time, and OMG — she's completely mesmerized.


It's almost as if she's in total disbelief about what she's seeing, and witnessing this moment just makes us wish that all children had this opportunity to see themselves represented in their toys.

Among the thousands of people who commented on the video, many of them are touched by her reaction to her new doll. 

"You can literally see her imprinting that into her mind. Representation matters!" one TikTok user commented. 

Another person wrote, "I'm so glad there's dolls like this today. No child should feel left out." 

Hopefully, videos like this will help push us towards more representation — not just in toys and dolls, but everywhere. Like one commenter said, no child should feel left out the way many unfortunately do.
