Vintage Baby Dykes Figurines

DATE
Century: 20th (1901-2000)

A bit of background information concerning the origin of these toys:

“DYKEdolls is a New York City based doll company that creates action figures and dolls that reflect alternative lifestyles, including Bobbie Dolls and BabyDykes.

DYKEdolls is the first company to create lesbian dolls and was founded by 36-year-old Stephanie Perdomo in 2004 after she completed a master’s thesis at NYU Tisch School of the Arts. Her thesis was about lesbians’ under-representation in popular culture. She wanted to create dolls that showed these lesbian and butch lifestyles as well as other lifestyles that do not conform to the heteronormativity in society today.”

The group figure is a small representation of a family including Kelly, Christine and Baby Soo Jin.
