When I was younger I played with my American Girl doll all the time. I have Samantha. My parents got me Samantha because she looked most like me. My friends had multiple dolls because they liked their stories and how they looked. In the Roth reading she says, “(1) design technologies, images, and products so that it becomes easier to capture and reproduce a continuum of skin tones without having to resort to (often unsatisfactory) methods of compensation;”. I think that American Girl is doing a good job enabling girls to develop racial and cognitive equity by creating dolls that are different ethnicities so girls can become of aware of the other cultures that are around us at such a young age.
