Toys & Kid’s Clothing from Black-Owned Businesses

It is our job to teach our children about racial inequity and the structural problems within our country. It is also our job to lead by example. One small step we can take in the right direction is to shop from and support Black-owned businesses along with diversifying our children’s toy collections. Below you will find a list of some of our favorites!

Home Goods & Clothing

If you are looking for an adorable infant and toddler clothing brand, you have to check out Coco’Pie Clothing. We love their goal which “is to show black girls how beautiful they are by placing their awesomeness front and center on our shirts!” because there aren’t enough images of brown girls on mainstream apparel.

HarperIman dolls are extremely popular and it is no surprise why. They are beautifully crafted handmade linen keepsake dolls. A mother-daughter duo found that dolls of color are underrepresented, and set out to do something about it. The dolls are different sizes, skin tones, and represent many different hair types.
