I’m always on the lookout for positive, self-esteem boosting products for kids, especially ones targeted for black girls and boys. My daughter will be turning 4 in September (where does the time go?) and she specifically told me she wants to have a princess themed party.
Princesses are a loved part of many American girls’ culture, but it’s no secret there is very little representation of different races and cultures. While I don’t restrict my kids to only play with certain toys or use specific products based on race, it is important for me to expose them to books, toys and products in which they can see themselves being represented. That’s why I ‘m so excited I came across this adorable princess princess party set from Crystal Swain-Bates. The party set is perfect for throwing a black princess party, birthday party, baby shower, or sleepover.
I initially mentioned Crystal on my blog last year when I mentioned her awesome coloring books for black kids in the holiday gift guide that went viral. Crystal is the author of seven fun black children’s books and the owner of Goldest Karat Publishing, LLC, a boutique publisher aiming to fill the ethnic diversity gap in traditional publishing.
Are you planning a celebration for your pretty black princess? Tired of all of the blond hair, blue eyed princesses that your daughter can’t relate to? Get this party in a box featuring a beautiful black princess named Makayla from the book I’m a Pretty Princess!
This set for 16 contains the following items: (16) 9 inch plates, (16) 7 inch dessert plates, (16) 9 inch cups, 16 pink and yellow balloons, 16 cupcake wrappers, and (1) pink tablecloth. Also available is the “Big Hair Don’t Care” party set which is just as cute!
