Artist Creates Dolls With Vitiligo For Kids With This Rare Skin Condition

Everyone wants to feel represented and looks like many artists nowadays are on a mission to make everyone feel included.

Kay Black, aka Kay Customz, creates unique custom-made dolls inspired by real people. Her newest, beautiful creations are amazing dolls with vitiligo. The artist paints the skin of her dolls with intricate patterns inspired by images of women and girls who have this condition and creates different styles fitting each doll.

“I love what I do and take pride in each custom design!” says the artist, and we believe she should as Kay’s creations make the world a better place.

Gorgeous. Would like to see a Caucasian doll, too. My (32yr old) blond, blue eyed niece has vitiligo. She would've gone nuts :)!

I'm 1/2 mexican, this condition & mongolian marks are fairly common in our family. I wish more dolls like these existed for every skin color.

Don't get me wrong I love the idea of more acceptance dolls especially working the in the preschool field. I see alot of children even upset cause they are darker than their mom. But to make the clear distinction of Africa is poorly represented because caucasians have this disease as well.
