Mixis Encourage Children to Celebrate A Diverse Mix of Races, Faces & Places

TORONTO – With its mission to build self-esteem, promote tolerance, celebrate diversity, cultivate cross cultural relationships and dialogue, Toronto based YNU GROUP will showcase its award-winning MIXIS™ line of multi-racial fashion dolls at The Doll and Teddy Bear Expo (August 9-10, 2008).

The 2007 Creative Child Awards panel has awarded the Mixis™ Dolls a SEAL OF EXCELLENCE AWARD in the Collectible Dolls for Kids category!

“Each Mixis™ Collectible Play Doll is designed to realistically portray and better reflect the growing number of children sharing two or more distinct racial backgrounds. This fusion of races include people of African heritage, Native People, Hispanic, Middle Eastern, Asian, and Caucasians,” says Goodland. “Children can identify with one or more of the dolls on a personal level. The focus is on the blending of races, ethnicities and cultures, thereby encouraging a dialogue between children and their families that explores their cultural richness and diversity”.

“The Mixis products help teach children to see and to appreciate the beauty in themselves and in every human being. An early appreciation for uniqueness in color, shape and size is beautiful, offers extraordinary value,” explains Goodland.
