Melanites is a project created by Jennifer Pierre, a graduate student from Boston. In her words, the project was created “to celebrate Brown Boyhood and encourage positive self-expression with creative and educational role play. Our goal is for young children of color to feel EMPOWERED and VALUED in our society.”
Melanites is introducing the first line of BOY DOLLS OF COLOR. Their “Action Pals” combine the emotional appeal of a doll and the articulation of an action figure.
We at Limetown were lucky to be chosen to develop the character designs for these figures, since we fully support the blossoming of more diverse and equal options for kids to play and learn.
You can know more about the project and back it here on their Kickstarter Campaign.
