As many of your have probably noticed, my children are non-white. As someone who is very concerned with cultural relations, I try to introduce my children to a wide array of nationalities and cultures. However, it is nice to allow them to have products that celebrate THEM. The problem is that many companies really offer a few versions of children. In general it is a light-skinned child with different colors of hair and eyes. Occasionally, you will find a company that allows for very dark skin, but rarely do you find a company that celebrates not only the multiple skin tones, but eye, mouth, and hair differences as well. We had the hardest time last year creating a doll that looks like my daughter simply because they did not offer an option that DID look like her.
That is why I was THRILLED with my options at Champion Me Books! The Personalized Children's Books feature a large variety of eye shapes, skin tones, hair styles (and textures), and even nose shape. I loved that they really considered the wide array of children in the world, and worked to celebrate those differences.
Champion Me Books has won many awards in the children's book and toy fields!
They offer 4 different titles to feature your child in, and all are very cute! You can create them as e-books as well as soft or hardcover books. Our favorite was [Your Child] vs. The Scribble Monster for our little "artist" who likes to draw all over the house. They also offer:
- [Your Child] vs. Stonkeropolous
- [Your Child] in Gadget Land
- [Your Child] in the Great Escape of Mighty Star!
You can check out all of the options here: http://www.championmebooks.com/
