New Black Barbie . . . Is not even a Barbie . . . She’s Fashion Royalty.

Let’s see . . . there are good things about the internet . . . you find new things.

And it’s bad things about the internet too  . . . you find new things. Lol.

UPDATE – visit INTEGRITYTOYS.com for more in depth questions and the purchase of any of their dolls.

Adele Makeda 2004

This image circulating around being named as the “New Black Barbie” “Ghetto Black Barbie” etc etc is not even a Barbie. A GOOGLE search, can reveal her name is “Adele Makeda” she is a retired doll of a Integrity Toy’s “Fashion Royalty” line. FYI . . . here is Barbie’s “So In Style” line aka the “Black Barbie”

Below is an image of Adele Makeda packaged:

Adele Makeda Fashion Royalty

This doll is currently retailing on eBay for $191.25, some of her other looks are on eBay for up to $300. She’s part of a set including 11 other “Fashion Royalty” characters . . . read her back story here.

Below are some other looks she’s been sold as. The way she looks, along with the rest of her collection appears to embody the current state of fashion. The reality is, somewhere in the world, it’s woman that looks like this and some of the other “Fashion Royalty” dolls RIGHT NOW. (Although the above doll is circa 2004)

Whether you agree or disagree with how they look, these dolls are not packaged with bright pink graphics being shown during Nickelodeon or Disney, targeting children.

    You can visit IntegrityToys.com for more update information but I think the Fashion Royalty line has been retired. The doll appearing at the top is on eBay now for $191.25 in it’s original box. Some of her other “looks” are on eBay now for up to $300.

    I am offended by this doll. So in other words you are now trying to say that black women want to look white! Help me understand your reasoning on this doll? I for one will NOT be purchasing this horrible doll it is an insult to this BLACK woman!

    The article you are reading is offensive. I researched and there are other dolls and they are not called ghetto dolls. This statement of the doll being ghetto is only the opinion of this writer. They are glamour dolls. Some costing almost thousands of dollars. The company is called Fashion Royalty and this dolls was not to offend anyone.
