Hearts 4 Hearts Dolls

I have a 3 year old who loves dolls. It reminds me of myself when I was her age. I was obsessed with dolls and had a ton of them but they all looked the same. Unfortunately for my daughter, the ones she has all look the same too. For the holidays I wanted to get my girl a doll but something that maybe looked more like her. I am not ready to buy her an American Girl doll (not sure I ever will be ready for that) because she is too young but I still wanted what I wanted. Lucky for me I found Hearts for Hearts Girls by Playmates Toys.

Hearts for Hearts Girls are inspired by real girls from real places around the world. Each doll has her own story to tell, with ideas about how to make life better for her family, community, country, and the world around her. 

Standing 14 inches high (American Girl is 18 inches), each doll comes dressed in clothing from her country or region and also includes a book about her story. In addition each doll comes with a few accessories that are on her and also in addition. With 10 girls to choose from your little one can enjoy a doll that is like or or can learn about a doll from another country. What a great learning lesson for a little one.

Now my daughter is only 3 so the learning lesson is lost on her but I just really liked that I found a doll, Nahji nahjifrom India that resembles her in the sense that she is also Indian. One day it will be fun to tell her the story of Nahji, I read it but I don’t think she really got it.


I really am a fan of Hearts for Hearts. Target sells them for less than $24.99 which is a steal compared to the $100 American Girl.
