Who is the owner of Naturally perfect dolls?
Naturally perfect dolls were the brainchild of the parents of two beautiful daughters who were the inspiration for the birth of the new company. They are from Miami Florida. They believed that however, their child looked she should feel proud about themselves. This sparked the idea of creating the brand.
One of their daughters was in love with a barbie doll and wished she would have hair just like her. So, she asked her parents wasn’t her hair blonde and straight but curly and black and they said “This is how you are proud of that!!”.
To encourage their daughters, they developed their first doll to spread the message to every girl that beauty is from within and each skin tone has a different beauty standard.
