Did you know that in June this year Misty Copeland became the first female African-American principal ballerina at the American Ballet Theatre? Did you know that to mark the occasion Pebble added a black ballerina to their famous ‘Once upon a time…’ range?
The ‘Once upon a time…’ Range has been around since the early days of Pebble. Not only are they passionate about the lives they change in Bangladesh through Hathay Bunano – the fair trade program that empowers women and pays them a fair wage and benefits for the beautiful toys they create, they are passionate about making toys that inspire children and allow them to use their imaginations.
Pebble are committed to not only creating beautiful, traditional “slow play” toys for children, but they are trying to introduce diversity, both through the characters they make and the cultures and ethnicities they mirror.
Our new Blue Ballerina is also just a beautiful doll and will be treasured and loved by children everywhere for years to come!
