As I mentioned above, each doll came with a card explaining their history.
Emerald Okada: Heritage - Black American/Native American and Japanese. Her parents met in college where they both majored in music. Her dad is a music producer and her mom is a classical violinist. Her dad's father was a civil rights activist who even marched with Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. To keep the tradition alive, her dad constantly reminds her to never take her freedom for granted. On the other hand, her mom enjoys role playing to teach her about her Japanese culture.
Rosa Dominguez Katz: Heritage - Latin and Jewish. She was born in Los Angeles, CA. She lives with her parents, her younger brother and sister. At 13 she had her Bat Mitzvah and at 15 she had her Quinceanera . You can say she came of age, twice. Her family came from Mexico, and some as far away as Israel to celebrate with her.
