History in Action Toys

At a recent Black History Month event, I met HIA Toys founder Sterling Ashby. His company has introduced three six-inches tall African American action toys: Benjamin Banneker, Bessie Coleman, and Matthew Henson. The dolls can be purchased separately for about $24.95 or as a set. For more information visit

Thank you for the post. Some recent media on HIA Toys:

(read) Washington City Paper

(listen) KYW News Radio (Philadelphia)

(watch) WTAP ABC (Harrisburg) Interview

Also, the young woman I gave your book to really enjoyed it.
