When Maite Makgoba, an entrepreneur from Soweto, started looking for a doll that her three-year-old niece could relate to, she realised that there was a gap in the market for a truly South African doll with natural hair and an air of fun and excitement around her. This saw the birth of Momppy Mpoppy.
There are black dolls out there, but a black doll with a South African flair? Nothing to be found. Maite has also branded Momppy Mpoppy to include a kiddies’ clothing range and accessories matching the doll's clothing, party-themed accessories and more.
