Questions for “China Doll” MEANING: 1. In the opening paragraph, Wong compares her new Kira doll with the other Barbie dolls in her collection. How were they different? Princess Barbie had long, blonde hair, a beautiful shiny gown, and shimmery white tiara. Kira had black hair and a floral wrap skirt over a pink bathing suit. 2. In paragraph 4, an eight year old Wong wonders why her parents don’t get her the doll she wanted, contemplating that “maybe the store didn’t have any more Princess Barbie dolls, so they had to buy me the leftovers, or the ones that no one wanted.” By the end of the essay, however, Wong seems to realize that her parents may have had a different reason. Why do you think they chose the Kira doll for their daughter? I think they chose the Kira doll for their daughter because they wanted her to know that she is beautiful too, even though she might not look like the Princess Barbie doll. 3. Wong’s essay compares both her Kira doll with Princess Barbie and herself wither best friend, Sarah. In what ways do the dolls function as symbols for the girls? Symbol : a person, place, or thing that represents an abstract quality or concept. A red heart symbolizes love; the Golden Gate Bridge symbolizes San Francisco; a cross symbolizes Christianity.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
