The Poupée Makedaa Dolls

Queen Makeda has reincarnated in a form of a doll, thanks to Laytah Shatta. Laytah Shatta has created some beautiful dolls, called Poupée Makedaa. She was inspired by Queen Makeda.

“MAKEDA WAS A STRONG, POWERFUL, AND BEAUTIFUL ETHIOPIAN QUEEN, RULER OF A LARGE EMPIRE IN EAST AFRICA. IN A WORLD WHERE THE STANDARD OF BEAUTY RARELY ACKNOWLEDGES THEM, LITTLE BLACK GIRLS SOMETIMES STRUGGLE TO BUILD SELF-ESTEEM. IN THAT CONTEXT “MAKEDAA” BECOMES THE SYMBOL OF ACCEPTANCE AND POSITIVE IDENTIFICATION. OUR MAGNIFICENT DOLLS ARE DESIGNED NOT ONLY WITH BLACK SKIN BUT ALSO WITH BLACK FEATURES, HEALTHY SILHOUETTE AND LUXURIOUS AFROS FOR OUR PRECIOUS LITTLE ONES TO FEEL RECOGNIZED, BEAUTIFUL AND LOVED.”

The Poupée Makedaa Dolls are available here.
