WHO IS AKIKI?
Akiki is the Swahili word for ruby – the precious stone. Rubies are associated with nobility, courage and self-confidence, qualities I would like for our children.
Akiki the doll – Is a brown 18 inch doll, with lovely curly hair and beautiful eyes. She is full figured, representing the shape of many children.
Akiki the Character – She is a bubbly African girl about 5 years old. She always has ideas, likes helping and loves her family and friends. She loves to travel across Africa learning new things. Akiki’s narratives are purposed to teach and entertain children. The stories are very relatable to all children and they have teachings. The published stories are inspired by Fatuma’s children play and laughter.
AKIKI ON THE NEWS
I was looking to purchase your Akiki doll. for my 5 years old daughter, i have looked everywhere for toys that represent her. but unfortunately i was always met with either poor quality or just plain ugly and false representation. glad you have managed to pass that barrier for us all, thus i find it only fair and just to purchase from you.
READY WITH BIRTHDAY PRESENT
Morning Fatuma, I managed to pick the doll and Akiki short stories on Saturday. I really love the doll and I am sure my daughter will love it for her birthday.
