Project Description

  • Providing representation in the plush baby doll industry for children of color while simultaneously providing the same with a positive children's book series.
  • Too often, stories are read to little ones of princesses and castles whose images do not represent children of color.
  • I created a story based on a character I created named Princess Arjana.
  • Princess Arjana is a baby princess of color who wears a golden crown.                         "Goodnight Princess Arjana," a limited edition book, was written primarily for the six and under age group.
  • The first book in the series is called Princess Arjana "Her World." This book is filled with vibrant illustrations, twists, turns, and travels around the globe. As the children read along, they will learn new and exciting things about the places Princess Arjana travels to.

  • Each book is complete with an image of the world map or globe and questions for interaction. In this first book, the readers will be surprised to learn that the princess has a sibling. As the stories progress, the readers will learn more and more about the princess and her sibling these stories will encourage the children to read more, leaving a lesson learned at the end of the story and have them guessing where the princess will go next in the following book.  

  • The young listeners and early readers will love the positive messages, challenges, and triumphs while falling in love with Princess Arjana.

  • Here is a snippet from Princess Arjana "Her World":                                                                  This is the story of Princess Arjana. In a land far, far away, there is a secret place filled with the most beautiful skies and the most beautiful seas. This is the land where Princess Arjana was born.   I hope you enjoyed the snippet and look forward to reading the whole book.

  • The global stuffed animal & plush toys market size was valued at USD 7.98 billion in 2018 and is anticipated to expand at a CAGR (The compound annual growth rate) of 7.61% over the forecast period of 2019 to 2025.

  •  I am seeking funding to help with production costs, including acquiring an illustrator for continuing Princess Arjana's books and the manufacturing of the prototype for the Princess Arjana plush doll; the total for these will be $15,000
  • I need to raise $5000.00 to begin the process. My friends and family have donated $1100.00 I am seeking to raise  $3900. Princess Arjana's sibling will be introduced in book one and once the book has launched, we shall begin creating merchandise for a plush doll of her sibling.
  • I promise to affirm positive images, self-worth, love, and positive representation by bringing Princess Arjana to life (the plush doll) and within her storybook series.
  • I would like to take this time to say thank you. Not just from me, but on behalf of all of the children who will be able to hear a story and look at pictures in a book and imagine one day being just like, Princess Arjana. Thank you for helping to bring my dream to reality.
