Shani was created as an alternative line to Barbie in 1991. The Shani line features lovely African American dolls, bold colors, and introduces head molds that later become staples in the main Barbie line. The Shani line promises “a world of beauty, fun, and success” and features the characters Shani, Asha, Nichelle, and Jamal. The first year Shani dolls feature an evening wear line and debut a set of beach outfits. To see other Barbie beach dolls, click here.
