Bring culture, community and creativity into your classroom. This set of dolls illustrates differences in skin colours and other physical attributes commonly seen in everyday life, allowing children to develop a connection with their heritage and encouraging others to notice and react in positive ways to difference among people. These soft dolls are ideal for children of all ages, making practicing cultural competence accessible for all. Yalke Red an original artwork by June Smith has been used by our artisans to create the clothing featured on these dolls. Spectacular views of various creatures such as birds and frogs, and different vegetation can be viewed in the Yalke or wetlands of Australia, both in dry or wet seasons. In the dry season, vast water mass goes back to permanent wetlands, waterholes etc. and become home for waterfowls and many other migratory birds of Australia. In the wet, birds like magpies and geese congregate on the wetland or Yalke. June, with a vibrant color sense, has brilliantly depicted this design with Aboriginal symbols and signs out of her dreamtime story. Please note due to the handmade nature there are sometimes slight changes to the clothing design. An innovative and unique resource to encourage cultural competence, respect for diversity and exploration of identity. This resource also explores the heritage associated with traditional storytelling elements and connects children to our rich and diverse history. Made from 100% eco friendly natural cotton.
