Kmart Australia has added two same-sex couples to one of its family doll ranges, but shoppers have criticised the company for creating exclusively white dolls. The family play sets now come in three variations, including either a family of two fathers, two mothers, or a mother and father. Each set also comes with a picnic basket, a pet, a baby boy and a young girl and costs $15 (£7.80) each. Initially, the retail giant was widely praised on Twitter for its representation of the LGBT+ community. However, many shoppers were disappointed that all of the dolls included in the new sets from Kmart were white. “Kmart, it seems, are selling white people only same-sex family doll sets,” wrote one user on Twitter.
