Outside of Mattel’s line of Barbies, the search for darker-skinned dolls continues. Meet Rainbow High Doll Krystal Bailey, the elusive Black doll that has finally hit Amazon. 

You may or may not be a collector of dolls. However, you’ll always appreciate the new dolls that reflect people from all walks of life. Rainbow High is the latest doll collection by MGA Entertainment to hit the ranks alongside the iconic Bratz line. The brand carries two collections of dolls that each have their own area of study with their personal styles correlating with a certain color in the rainbow. 

Krystal Bailey is the first dark-skinned Black doll to come out of Rainbow High’s second lineup of dolls, making finding her online a challenge. However, the beautiful Black doll with purple hair has officially hit Amazon.

Krystal, a journalism student, comes with two different noteworthy indigo outfits. The doll comes with two jackets, a skirt, jeans with knee cut-outs and two pairs of heels. Plus, collectors of the world can display Krystal on her official doll stand. 

One shopper said this doll isn’t easy to find, but it’s worth it.

“This doll is so pretty and is known to be the hardest to find,” they wrote. “Well, to be honest, Krystal Bailey is one of my favorite dolls from the Rainbow High animated series. This doll is a good buy for me, and it may take a while, but I don’t mind waiting.”

Another Amazon shopper said they wanted the doll for themselves

“This doll looks even better in person!” They said in their review. “It’s totally worth it. I bought it for my daughter, but I want to keep it for myself.”

Whether you have a small one in mind who can appreciate a new Black dolly or you want to start the beginnings of your own collection, Krystal is a great start.
