Sonia Singh, an artist but also a mother coming from Tasmania, is the initiator of a really fantastic initiative. The world we live in creates strange, often unrealistic ideals of beauty, and the worst is that these ideals reach our children, often disrupting their self-esteem or their outlook on life…
Thus, there arose “Tree Change Dolls”- an unusual action, which is to change the perception of beauty in children’s environment.
Sonia washes away old Barbie makeup, nay, even whole faces… and draws them again.
She gives the dolls more natural, childish look, she does not paint lips, if necessary, she changes hairstyles and clothes.
The result? Really fantastic! We really promote this type of initiative!
