It has nothing to do with theology. It has to do with a child's imagination. Children play with toys and imagine themselves as that doll or GI Joe or whatever. Therefore, the more the child could relate to the toy the more they enjoy it. That's why there are mitzvah kinder toys , because Jewish kids could relate more to something that looks more like themselves. Same goes with black/white (or shall I say African American/Caucasian) toys.
Too tired for a full response. But don't fool yourself into thinking mitzva kinder are to help a kid with imagination. Ot was made for very religious families that only want their kids or would rather their kids be exposes to only things from their community and kid with yalmukas is a great way to do that. I'm sure many communities forbid dolls but allow these.

That's the reason they were made. And that is theology.

If you want to vote Democrat, you are being very disloyal to Jewish people and very disloyal to Israel, Mr. Trump said.

That sounds racist to me.
Thats because it is racist. Religions love to hide behind race.

I am going to guess most here went to religious schools. How about we add up all the black kids that went to the same school. I will start with myself, 3 brothers, two sister and four children. They would add up to a big ZERO. Who wants to be next?

Yes we do but not in Catholic schools.  ;)
This way we can pretend we are not racist.  :)

I'm going to venture to say that this is actually  marketing to non-Caucasians, who want their kids to play with their own kind.

Most here went to religious JEWISH schools, the reason why there would be few, if any, black kids in a Jewish school has less to do with racial profiling and more to do with the fact that there aren't that many black Jews...

I guess that would be the same reason when I grew up (change Jewish to Catholic).  ;)

Amazon consistently prices two identical products in different colors different from each other.
There two doll houses when I just checked, they are not even being sold by Amazon, they are being sold by a third party, a different party for each doll house as well...
