Back in October, I told you about the relaunch of the popular KENYA Doll line of the early 90’s, and how the line was taking on a live-action counterpart with THE ROCKSTAR MADNESS BAND. Now, just in time for the holidays, KENYA dolls are hitting stores with an assortment available at Toys “R” Us and Family Dollar. To kick off the launch, a KENYA Dolls Gifting Suite was set up at the recent Soul Train Music Awards, and the folks behind the project sent some photos that landed here at Rock Father HQ this evening. Check ’em out below…

Back in 1992, the line of KENYA Dolls was released to massive success, delighting African American girls and quickly selling more than 4.8 million dolls. While the line had been dormant since 1996, Kenya is back, and like the original dolls, will be available in three skin tones – light, brown, and dark – allowing girls to find a doll they can say “looks just like me.” KENYA Dolls are available in three lines including “My First” (Newborns), “Kenya Classic” (3 years and older) and “Fashion Madness” (Tweens). For more on KENYA, check out
