Rooti Dolls by Rooti Creations UK Ltd is a range of gorgeous educational black fashion dolls that can speak and teach children many phrases in various African ethnic languages. Rooti Dolls enables parents to seize back the initiative and guarantees their children learn their native languages- through play. Our product undoubtedly holds the key to halting the demise of Africa’s ethnic languages. People from Ghana, Nigeria, Kenya, Sierra Leone, South Africa, Liberia, Uganda, Angola, Ivory Coast, Senegal, Congo, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Gambia, Guinea, Mali, Cameroon etc., will all have dolls that speak their various ethnic languages. Children will pick up words and phrases from playing with our dolls and this will serve as a building block to learn to speak and ultimately preserve our rich and beautiful African languages.

Dolls Image
Our dolls promote culture, language and each doll has a positive role for children to aspire to. The dolls are created as a real image and identity of us as black people- African, African Caribbean and African American. They have wider noses, fuller lips, long curly hair and they come in various shades of black. They also come dressed in a mix of elegant African fabric and western fashion styles. So from an early age, we are getting our children to appreciate the beauty of African products and fashion trends as opposed to all the negative images we see in the media about Africa.

Age Range: 3 years – 12 years of age.
Doll Price: £40 (worth every penny).
Languages: Each Doll speaks four languages.
Purchase: Dolls can be ordered online on or email
Our dolls are made with materials of the highest quality and they come dressed in the best and most stylish of outfits. Other dolls of the same quality and functionality range well over our £50 price tag. They come with their own unique names and identities. So when you purchase a Rooti Doll, you are not just buying a doll, you purchase with it a unique story and personality.
