Heart for Hearts Girls Review and Giveaway (CLOSED)

I think I have fallen in love with the Hearts For Heart Girl line of dolls!  Not only are they sweet, wholesome, and appropriate for girls of all ages, each Hearts For Hearts Girls doll represents a real girl from a real place around the world. Each has her own story to tell, with ideas about how to make life better for her family, community, country, and the world around her.  Also, included with the doll is a booklet that gives information about the dolls' family and culture.

There are six beatuiful girls to choose from.  There is Dell from the USA, Consuelo from Mexico, Nahji from India, Tipi from Laos, Lilian from Belarus, and Rahel from Ethiopia.

What makes this collection of dolls even better than a personal story?  When you buy a doll, Hearts For Hearts Girls donates part of the purchase price through their charitable partner, World Vision, to programs that support girls in that country. Whether it’s malaria nets in Africa, schoolbooks in Asia, or food supplies in the US, these programs help girls to thrive and succeed.

Hearts For Hearts dolls are beautifully packaged in a box that has a door you can open and see the doll and all of her accessories.  The details on the doll and her clothes are realistic and authentic.  The dolls have very pretty faces and beautifully detailed clothes and accessories to match.  The Girls' hair is rooted in the doll, nice and thick.  I imagine any little girl will love spending hours brushing and styling her hair.  Another nice feature of the Heart For Hearts dolls is that the arms, legs, and head are movable and allow for posing. 

Each Hearts For Hearts doll also comes with a special product code. Once you enter that code and create a user name on the website, you can enjoy all of the online content and activities—for free! If you don’t own a doll or don’t want to register, you can still visit and enjoy parts of our website—but you will be missing out on some of the fun.

Overall, this is a high quality product that gives back.  It is educational in that it teaches children about other cultures and how we can help others.

Heart For Hearts doll retail for about $24.99 and are recommended for ages 6 to 9 years old.  You can also buy additional accessories and outfitsfor the Hearts For Hearts Girls.  

You can also read each doll's diary, play fun games, a myHeart page, activities, and view inspiring stories of real girls on the Hearts For Hearts Girls colorful, kid-safe website:

Playmate Toys provided me with the items above in order to facilitate this review and giveaway.  All opinions are 100% mine.


  1. I think that to educate children about others in need we can do more community service projects in schools as well as connecting to other kids through technology such as skype and Flickr.

  2. I think that as a parent it is helpful to bring your kid along to do charity work even a toddler can pick up leaves , so even if you are doing something small they know they are doing something for someone else. Like when i get my charity food box together my daughter and son always come with me to help drop it off and I do my best to explain to them what is going on.
