Hearts For Hearts Girls Doll Line and Fashion Collection From Playmates Toys Review & Giveaway Ends 10/04/2011

Changing the World One Heart at a Time! 
That is the goal of the new Hearts For Hearts Girls doll line and fashion collection from Playmates Toys. The collection features six dolls from around the world, each with an inspiring story to share.

The authentically dressed and lifelike dolls each represent a girl who is working to change her community in ways that are unique to her home country. Included with each doll are a friendship bracelet and a story booklet that explains how these multicultural girls live and contribute to their families, communities, and culture. Each doll also comes with a special code that unlocks a free membership to the kid-safe Hearts for Hearts Girls Website, which features:
  • Additional information about each of the Hearts For Hearts Girls and the countries in which they live
  • Educational activities and lively games that are fun and rich in culture
  • Intriguing stories about real girls who are making a difference
  • While all girls are welcome to visit the site, the code unlocks access to additional features, including a larger array of games and a “myHeart” page

To further bring to light each Hearts For Hearts Girls’ culture, additional outfits are available for the dolls, so that your little girl can envision her doll’s story as she plays and changes the doll’s attire.

Additionally, through a partnership with World Vision3, a portion of the proceeds from the sale of each Hearts For Hearts Girls doll is donated to programs that support girls in that doll’s country. Whether it’s malaria nets in Africa, schoolbooks in Asia, or food supplies in the United States, these programs help girls to thrive and succeed.

Meet the six Hearts For Hearts Girls:
  • Meet Consuelo from Mexico City. Colorful and warm, Consuelo provides aid to hungry children who are homeless and live on the streets near her parents’ bakery.
  • Meet Lilian of Belarus. Determined Lilian provides aid to girls whose parents must find work in the big city and are forced to leave their children with orphanages.
  • Meet Dell from the heart of Kentucky’s Appalachian Mountains. Dell creates music and knitwear to share with others in need of warm clothing.
  • Meet Rahel of Ethiopia. Rahel, who dreams of becoming a doctor so that she can make a real difference for people in her region, journeys with her family into the wilderness of Ethiopia to help bring back aid to her community.
  • Meet Tipi from Laos. Based on a real girl who shares her art and storytelling with others through dancing, drawing, and puppetry, Tipi leads her school in a mural contest in hopes of winning much-needed books for her class.
  • Meet Nahji who hails from Assam, India. Brave Nahji breaks tradition to bring courage and education to the girls who work in the tea fields of India.

     MyBlogSpark sent me one doll (Tipi) and clothing/accessories (Dell) set to review with my daughter.  I wanted to surprise my daughter and boy did I!  Apparently she had already heard of this doll from a friend and she was hoping she would receive one for Christmas this year.  As she opened the box she started giggling and shrieking, she was in shock!  I bet these dolls will be on a lot of little girls' Christmas lists this year.  What a positive message these bring, that is the best part for me because I work hard to bring my children up in a positive environment and we are trying to teach them to help out others.  I love that these dolls help to encourage girls to step up and make a change, help others and care about others.  I don't know if it was a mistake to get the clothing and accessories set for another doll but they were cute and my daughter dressed Tipi up right away.
     The hair on the doll was high quality, it almost felt real!  I combed it for her and put it in a little topknot type bun, it looked cute.  The arms and legs can twist all the way around, now that is flexible.  The head tilts and moves very naturally too.  The clothing and accessories were high quality as well, made to last and perhaps be passed on to another little girl once my daughter gets too old to care for dolls.  The bracelet was her favorite thing, she couldn't wait to put it on and wear it to school so she can tell her friends all about her new doll.
