Candi was created by Helena Hamilton around 1989, but because Ms. Hamilton
could not get financial backing right away, the dolls were not mass produced or
distributed until about 1994. Designed to provide ethnic diversity in fashion dolls, the
first Candi doll produced was African-American. Later the line was expanded to include
Asian- and Hispanic-American face molds. Currently there are several other 'ethnic'
background dolls, with more being planned.
