  Hearts for Hearts Girls

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.

There are 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.

We received the doll Consuelo, she is from Mexico.  We also received the "Come A-Callin' play set" for Dell .
It was late a night we we heard a knock at the door.  It was a box with Consuelo, one of the Heart to Hearts Girls. I couldn't open the package quick enough.  It was one of the Hearts for Hearts Dolls.  Marebear was so excited to open the box.  It a Hearts for Hearts Girls.

Here is my daughter, Mare Bear, with her new doll, Consuelo.  She likes Consuelo because Consuelo care about  kids who are hungry.  Mare Bear knows what it is like to feel hungry, she has a feeding tube, and like Consuelo she has a heart for kids that are hungry and homeless.  

This is Mare Bear wearing the bracelet it come with.

  As a mom, I have to say I love these dolls.  It is really refreshing to have all the Hearts for Hearts Girls dolls modestly dressed.  I think they are the perfect size for playing and dressing.  It is nice to have a doll that teaches girls to go out into the world and be the change you want to see in the world. I think these dolls are also a nice way to teach your daughter about the world they live in.  You can go on the Hearts for Hearts website to learn about that doll's country.  I think the website is fun for girls and is user friendly too.  I also like that when you buy a doll a portion of the money is donated to a program that supports girls in that doll's country.
