Philadelphia, PA — A line of fashion dolls arrives on the scene, stunning, curvaceous, and impeccably dressed. What are they called? Beautiful Blessings. Since 2016, a growing number of girls, young women, and doll collectors are embracing these exquisite dolls with realistic proportions, designed and produced by Raveen James. The Beautiful Blessings Doll Company has now launched the doll’s full wardrobe, a collection of couture ensembles, elegant and trendy fashions and accessories.
“I created the Beautiful Blessings Doll Collection to build self-esteem and confidence,” says Raveen. ”I wanted girls and women to own dolls that help them realize that they are beautiful inside and out.”
Dolls allow young girls to imagine themselves and the future they envision. From early childhood up until puberty and sometimes beyond, doll lovers can own upwards of ten fashion dolls. Their form becomes ingrained in children’s imaginations as the ideal body type during the early stages of development, which could easily distort their expectations when dolls have dimensions that are disproportionate and unrealistic.
It has been widely reported that 2/3 of women in the United States wear a size 14 or over. Not only is this populous underrepresented in the fashion and entertainment industries, but the representation of this demographic is scarce in the toy industry, as well. The most popular brand of the 11½-inch fashioned doll in the country is scaled to dimensions that would theoretically be impossible for a human counterpart, potentially contributing to an unhealthy self-image among girls and young women.
Girls and women are Beautiful Blessings that are divine creations. The need for representation, inclusion, and body positivity for fashion dolls has only recently become a point of interest in the toy industry. Meanwhile, Deborah, by being a fuller-figured fashion doll available for purchase online, made her bold debut in 2016.
“I created the Beautiful Blessings Doll Collection because I wanted to help girls love themselves and to reinforce that they are beautiful just as they are. Let’s put an end to young girls body-shaming each other, putting themselves down, or believing that they have to be half-dressed to be considered beautiful,” says Raveen. “These dolls are for them to see for themselves – they are already fully beautiful. And that’s what the Beautiful Blessings Doll is all about – owning who you are.”
The Beautiful Blessings Doll Company has partnered with As Seen On TV Toys. Beautiful Blessings commercials now air in Dallas on Nickelodeon, in Los Angeles on Lifetime Television, and will soon be shown in major cities around the country. Elegant and trendy fashions and accessories are available in a variety of styles and fashion-forward patterns. Each doll arrives with an extraordinary, empowering message. Sorority themed colors – Alpha Kappa Alpha, Delta Sigma Theta, Sigma Gamma Rho, Zeta Phi Beta – are also available.
When asked, what is the appropriate age for this doll, Raveen replies, “Beautiful Blessings are perfect for any age. Because we’re never too old to play with dolls.”
