Bi racial soft baby dolls

I'm trying to find a nice quality soft baby boy doll, bi racial, AA & white.

I can't spend $$$ on a Waldorf doll and it's for a lil baby anyways, but would love something nicer than a plastic one from Walmart. I'm thinking something along the lines of Haba or Kathy Kruse, but they all seem to be white with blonde hair.

I did find a few on amazon thru the educational supply companies like Kaplan for preschools, but they are a bit chintzy looking.
Just want to have at least one doll in the house that looks like ds, light brown with curly hair

Any ideas??

Re: Bi racial soft baby dolls

My biracial dd had a American Girl Bitty Baby (and now she has some of the American Girl dolls) that we picked out to look like her. The torso is soft, but the head and limbs are plastic. Very good quality. You may find a deal on ebay or craigslist if you are open to pre-loved items. They also have the Bitty Twins that have hair vs. being bald.

What about the baby Stella doll? I know they have a female doll in more than one skin tone, but I don't know about the boy doll.

ikea has some soft babies of all colors but i think the dark skinned baby is very dark. they like stuffed animals but babies...so not really nice quality. but for $10ea i kind of want to get a set of them.

Delurking: We have the dark one for almost 3yo DD and its very soft and well made. The hair on it is great. You really can't beat the price. It is stuffed but I think that's better for younger kids anyway.

This is a great website. My lil girl has the Sierra doll from the Yasmin and Sierra set. We named her KiKi and I bought it for her when she was 5 months. It is a small soft doll and she loves it.

We were at IKEA on Friday too and it was so hard not to buy the whole set! I just told myself she has enough dolls but doesn't have a circus tent or barnyard.
