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 http://www.hiatoys.com/.
