When I first heard about Hearts for Hearts Girls dolls and took a moment to find out more about them, I was impressed. Here’s why…
Every Hearts for Hearts Girls® doll represents a real girl from a real place around the world. Each has her own story to tell and ideas about how to make life better for her family, community, country, and the world around her – and wants to make a difference. When you buy a Hearts For Hearts Girls doll, a portion of the purchases price is donated to children’s causes in countries around the world.
I’ve always felt that dolls are wonderful learning tools for children. They allow them to role-play and practice interacting with others. Hearts for Hearts Girls are the perfect way to take that idea one step further, by making children conscious of other cultures, too.
When Consuelo arrived a few weeks ago, my daughter loved that she was from Mexico. She boasted that she could speak Spanish to her (thanks to watching Dora the Explorer!) and was eager to introduce her to the other dolls.
Once my daughter started playing with her, she immediately mentioned how much she liked Consuelo’s outfit, and the array of ways she could be positioned. Because she has “joints” at the shoulders and hips, she can move a lot more than similar dolls on the market. She also has a fully pose-able head, as her neck allows for a full range of motion. This was a hit with my daughter because she loves to role-play and put on dramatic shows, so the more movement the better!
The other thing that really appealed to both of us was the array of accessories that Consuelo came with. In addition to her adorable blue skirt and green blouse with an embroidered collar, she wore a sweet flower headband, hot pink patent-look shoes, bangle bracelets and earrings (my daughter commented on them right away!). She also came with a comb, a bracelet for my daughter to wear, and more.
