Stacey McBride-Irby, SVP of product development, is a former project designer at Mattel, responsible for the So In Style line of African-American dolls, sorority Barbie, which celebrated the centennial of Alpha Kappa Alpha, and a black Barbie in the 1980s.

The company website describes the One World Doll Project as such:

THE ONE WORLD DOLL PROJECT promises to make one of the most significant positive cultural impacts on play and in the doll category in recent history.  Our beautiful dolls and unique works of art are the beginning of a revolution in play, ready for a market yearning for something unique to its experience – a doll that both embraces contemporary girls of color and symbolizes who they can become.

    While they are absolutely beautiful dolls, they all kinda look the same (lip, eye, nose shapes are almost EXACTLY alike)…. they need to be a little more unique from each other!
