I don’t have girls but I do have two nieces and another one due any time now, so I do check out girls’ toys and clothes. Thanks to Beth at RoleMommy I got a chance to check out a new line of dolls called the Karito Kids. Let me tell you, these dolls left an impression.
Karito Kids dolls aren’t your ordinary doll. Each 21 inch tall doll represents a different world culture. The line consists of six dolls – Piper (Australia), Ling (China), Zoe (New York), Gia (Italy), Lulu (Kenya), and Pita (Mexico). When a girl gets one of the six Karito Kids dolls, it comes with one outfit and a chapter book about her heritage. Each doll has hair that can be styled and the dolls can wear most 18″ doll clothes.
A portion of the $99 purchase price of each doll is donated to a charity selected by your child. Each doll comes with a unique activation code. When your little girl activates that code she will choose a world charity that the money will go to. Once online she’ll be able to create an online profile. By playing games and learning about other countries and cultures on the site and she’ll earn World Change, which also help less fortunate children.
I thought the doll was beautiful, and found it sturdy and well made. I think the idea of a child being able to help other children is fantastic. What a great way to reinforce the values we must teach our children. The Karito Kids dolls remind us that charity does begin at home and that one person no matter how big or small can make a difference.
I have one Karito Kids doll, Lulu, to give away to one lucky winner. The holidays are right around the corner folks. Wouldn’t this would be a terrific gift for a girl to open on Christmas morning!
