Healthy Roots
Healthy Roots

There are no dolls for young black girls and Healthy Roots is changing that. We empower young black girls by creating positive representation through dolls and storybooks. Young black girls can suffer from low self esteem caused by unachievable beauty standards. This impacts their education and their future. Healthy Roots combats these issues by representing the diversity of the African Diaspora. We believe that no one should feel less than because of the kink of their curl or skin color.
Healthy Roots is a toy company that creates dolls and storybooks that combat internalized racism and colorism among young black girls.
