M’simbi is a Zambian word meaning “Girl” – M’simbi Dolls are for girls of all backgrounds and aims to promote the truth that beauty, worth, and self-love also comes in shades of brown and gravity defying curls. It is important for young girls and their mothers to embrace their natural beauty and challenge unrealistic mainstream beauty standards. At M’simbi, we believe the toys children play with at a young age influence how they think, act, and view themselves. We believe through providing young girls with dolls that they can love and see themselves in, they will also learn to love themselves. Something as simple as a doll can help change the trajectory of a young girl’s life.
