Bedtime Baby

This is bedtime baby. I got her when I was born and she has been with me ever since.

As a child I remember that one thing about bedtime baby that stood out to me was that she had brown skin as opposed to the social ‘norm’ that majority of dolls and soft toys were white. Although I never understood the true significance of that realisation at a young age I look back now and understand how special it was to me to have a soft toy a similar colour to me that I could relate to as a mixed race person.
