The first black doll shop in Europe gave a beautiful doll to The Game which was a special present for his daughter! Ellen Brudet, the Surinam founder of ‘Coloured Goodies’ woke up to a post on instagram that warms all of our hearts. He expresses his gratefulness and let’s the world know the importance of real beauty: it comes from within! The lesson he wanted to teach his daughter made thanks to Ellen who with her store based in Amsterdam sets the tone for black representation. Winnie Harlow plays a big role in this too. The doll looks like the supermodel, who we all know for never covering her vitiligo and inspiring others to be yourself!
Short story: I was in Amsterdam & I was gifted this doll by a very sweet woman “Ellen Brudet” who is a doll maker & she wanted to make my daughter one of her dolls…. I had to pick how I wanted it & out of the things I could’ve thought of… I had an idea to have her create one that favored one of my favorite people @winnieharlow (whom I’ve never met but ghost follow lol & admire) because her strength, confidence & perfect imperfections are the type of things I want to instill in my baby as well as explain to her that beauty is not based on others opinion of what others think a person may or may not look like physically but simply in God’s creations which we are all cut from. So I finished my tour & couldn’t wait to get home & give my daughter this doll… educate her on beauty & how it comes from within.. I pull it out my backpack & Cali says “Ooooh Daddy, it’s Winnie, I love her… she’s so cute” & I’m like awwww damn… there goes my daddy teaching his daughter something moment lmaooo… she was already hip & didn’t need to be put on… but that’s children these days, smarter than we think & very appreciative.. Thank You again Ellen & @colouredgoodies for creating a moment for not only my child but the others your dolls have touched.
