It’s not often I fall in love with a doll. In fact, dolls and I have a very long and ugly history. From chopping off my doll’s hair and using black sharpie on her head, to smashing my sister’s favorite doll into a tree and popping her head off, I’m not the poster child for dolls. I do remember spending hours flipping through a certain doll catalog though so apparently there was a little hope for me. A few weeks ago I came across Hearts for Hearts Girls and I knew I had to have one for my daughter. I loved the line, the story, the cause. You see, for every doll purchased, a portion is donated to World Vision (over $250,000 so far) to help kids in the region the doll represents. I contacted the company and they were so kind as to send me a Hearts for Hearts Girl for my daughter.
I fell in love with her. I am quite certain that if Mosi had existed when I was a child I would have loved her dearly. I would have been young enough to not truly appreciate all the fine details and the quality workmanship. I would have loved the jewelry, the clothes, and most of all, the story. Ever since I learned to read, I read any book I could get my hands on. The best part about them sending me Mosi is that I get to play with her first – for the purpose of telling you all about her of course. Just don’t tell my daughter. Hopefully I can get her back into the box in perfect order.
Besides the fact that part of the proceeds are donated to helping kids, they have a great price point for something that’s “the next step up” from your traditional doll. These dolls are priced between $25-$30. After seeing the dolls I can honestly say they are worth every penny. In fact, I’m going to say something I never say. Even if you cannot find a sale or “deal”, these dolls are worth full price – for real. I definitely believe they should be on every doll loving girl’s list and maybe even contemplated for a non-doll loving girl.
I’ll be sure to share a picture of my daughter opening her present on Christmas Day. I just know she is going to love Mosi so very much. For doll information, videos, and games, check out Hearts for Hearts Girls. Best of all, each doll comes with a special code that allows you to unlock a special membership to a kid-safe site full of exclusive fun Hearts for Hearts Girl games and activities.
You can purchase a Hearts for Hearts Girl for that special girl in your life at WalMart.com, Target/Target.com, Meijer, Amazon, Toys R Us, or Barnes & Noble. They are also available at the Playmates Toys website.
