Elite Mother And Daughter Toy Company


Founded by Cynthia and Kathryn, the mother and daughter duo transformed their relationship from more than just family into business partners and best friends. The inspiration behind the establishment of Harperiman was their commitment to creating dolls of color that represent the kind of dolls the founders wished they had and the dolls of color they needed during their childhood.

The dedication at Harperiman is to manufacture dolls that fortify children of color, emphasizing their importance, beauty, and elegance. The mission is to create dolls that help reinforce how beautiful our children are by providing them with positive affirmations through dolls that they can identify with.

By creating more relatable dolls, black children are represented more accurately despite the limited choices available in the market. Nonetheless, the dolls at Harperiman are all beautifully handcrafted and available for pre-orders, with many fan favorites including the Zarina Handmade Linen Doll, Melody Linen Doll, and Lauren Handmade Doll.

These dolls are perfect for light imaginative play, allowing black kids to have fun with figurines that share a similar style and skin tone.
