While shopping for a doll family recently, AJ of Thingamababy discovered that sets are only available in single shades, such as "Modern", "Ethnic", and "Asian". Matching the skin tones of a multiracial family means buying each doll separately, a more expensive option.

As far as racially anachronistic toy issues go, I'd count this as progress, at least compared to Golliwogs. But then, Golliwogs are still around, so maybe it's just one more thing to deal with.
