In her frustration to find a modestly-dressed doll in toy stores, Indonesian Muslim mother Sukmawati Suryaman began designing a Barbie-like doll. Suryaman dressed the dolls conservatively; she didn't want her own daughter to play with a traditional Barbie doll as she feared she might imitate the doll's immodest way of dressing.
That's how she came up with the concept of the Salma dool, the latest must-have toy for Indonesian girls.
"Salma" is coined from the Arabic word "Salamah", which means peace. The Muslim dolls are available in stores throughout Indonesia and are expected to be sold in neighboring Muslim countries by the end of this year.
