Where's the Diversity?

Norah and I stopped by Wal-mart really quick today (no I do not shop there but honestly, Target is 30 minutes away!).  We took a quick stroll down the doll aisle so I could hear Norah say, "didi," her word for baby, over and over again!  There were two full aisles of dolls and Barbies and ALL BUT ONE were WHITE!  I mean c'mon this is the US of A...we have so many different races and cultures to represent and so many heritages to give credit to.  Why do these companies not see this?  I guess we'll stick with the one "didi" we have at home and maybe embark on some more diverse options in the future!

It is frustrating and disappointing, isn't it?! My parents got my Josiah a cute Asian boy doll - they had to order it online.

Now that I think about it, an e-mail to a store like Wal-mart is probably a good way to start. If the demand is not there, they don't put it on the shelves. Sad, but true, I guess!
