I confess: when I attended the International Black Doll Show at the Convention Center in downtown Philadelphia, I thought I would not see any playscale dolls or action figures. Wasn't I pleasantly surprised by these finds? See the following photos:
O.J. Simpson (no comment), Bob Scout (help, Roxanne! Is that Bob?), and a character from Welcome Back, Kotter whose name I don't recall.
Mod era Julias in original Julia fashions by Mattel.
Venus or Serena Williams and Integrity Toys' African Legends Janay.
I think the name of the black female in silvery armor is Nubia, but I don't recall her character other than that. My younger brother was the Wonder Woman t.v. show fan. Something about Lynda Carter twirling around, LOL.
Integrity Toys' African Legends Nakia.
All dolls photographed were available for sale by doll dealer Linda Hayes.
More information about the International Black Doll Show will appear in a Philadelphia Examiner article.
