About this project
What do you get when you mix a little bit of fun, a little bit of fashion and a whole lot of cool? Double Dutch Dolls, the so Cool, so Cute, so You brand of dolls and books made just for today’s girl.
Double Dutch Dolls is different from every brand out there in so many ways.
Each of the 6 characters in the Double Dutch Dolls line-up are multicultural. Meet Kaila, the fierce fashionista and Zaria, the classic cool braniac. They are the African-American stars of the series along with their four friends: Alainna (Hispanic), Sascha (African-American), Trinity (African-American/Caucasian), and Kadence (Asian/Caucasian).
The Double Dutch Dolls adventure begins with a book series all about what it’s like being a girl today- peer pressure, homework, parents, gossip, shopping and that first crush. To all the Mothers, Grandmothers, Aunts and Friends out there you know what we mean. Girls today face more decisions, pressures, and challenges than we did growing up. We’ve also become a true melting pot. Girls come in so many beautiful shades of brown and we wanted to create a brand that celebrates their beauty while introducing fun, positive role models to help them navigate today’s world.
The first two books in the Double Dutch Dolls book series “Double Dare” and “Double Trouble” along with the 18” Kaila and Zaria fashion dolls are already available on our website at www.doubledutchdolls.com or at www.Amazon.com. They have sold so well, we know it’s time to introduce more of the characters.
I have almost completed the design for all four of the next dolls (Sascha, Alainna, Trinity and Kadence) but need your help bringing them to life. Your financial support will allow us to start production on the next dolls, perform product testing (each of our dolls follow strict safety testing and adhere to the US children’s safety requirements ASFTM963), package and ship each one.
Now, there’s just one more thing we need. We love every one of the girls so we need you to tell us which doll to make next. When you support our campaign you get to cast your vote for your favorite character, be the first in line for the next doll and score some great swag (sticker sheets, drink cups, books, bags, t-shirts, and dolls)!
Our plans are to bring all the dolls to life as quickly as possible so for every stretch goal we hit, we’ll add another doll based on your votes. How exciting is that?
STRETCH GOAL #1: $38,000
·If funding reaches $38,000, we will introduce a 2nd new doll based on your votes
STRETCH GOAL #2: $54,000
·If funding reaches $54,000, we will introduce a 3rd new doll based on your votes
STRETCH GOAL #3: $69,000
·If funding reaches $69,000 we will introduce all 4 of the new dolls and have all 6 dolls available for little girls everywhere
STRETCH GOAL #4: $100,000
·We have a few more things we would love to achieve if funding hits $100,000 including launching a “choose your own adventure” app to help girls practice making good decisions and deal with peer pressure, rolling out our fashion doll clothing line and doll accessories, creating an animated short film, introducing a Summer reading program, and much more. Backers will also benefit because we will add new bonus rewards, which will be revealed, as we get closer to the goal.

Risks and challenges
Two Double Dutch Dolls books and dolls are already for sale and our new dolls will be made with the same high quality and design as our first two.
Fortunately or unfortunately depending on how you look at it we've been there done that with this project and have a profound understanding of the production process and what it takes to stay on task. We've already endured the many challenges and obstacles and come out on top.
So, with two dolls under our belt, we feel confident we can deliver on this project. However, there is one potential obstacle- if for some reason we receive requests for 100,000 dolls. Yes, we feel 100,000 would cause production delays. But, don't let that stop you. We are up for that challenge!
And, in the event of any other unforeseen delays our backers will be the first to know. We don't like not fun surprises so promise not to spring any on you. We will provide frequent updates and keep you in the know. We truly appreciate your support.
