Win a Karito Kids Doll: Caring is Cool in Any Language

Karito Kids Dolls and Charitable Giving

Children like dolls that let them role play their hopes and dreams. So if your child enjoys playing with dolls, why not give them one that encourages positive values? Karito Kids have spirit, kindness, and generosity…and a hip flair youngsters will adore.

A true international bunch, the Karito Kids hail from around the world. Their sweet, molded faces show the unique beauty of their individual heritage and the chic outfits reflect modern trends in their countries. The clothing is stylish, but appropriate for a pre-teen girl, and the 21″ dolls are proportioned like an 11 year-old girl–a refreshing change of pace.

Even more importantly, the girls work hard at developing their talents and interests: working with animals, learning about technology, designing high fashion, playing sports, hosting a television talk show, and more.

My favorite part about Karito Kids is the online giving program, which allows the child to direct a portion of the doll’s retail price to a charity of choice.

Children six and above are the main audience for Karito Kids, but the dolls are tested to meet standards for ages three and above. The dolls are made from non-phthalate vinyl and, although the dolls are made in China, are independently tested to ensure they meet the highest US standards. You can read more safety information here (.pdf file).

The girls have multi-dimensional personalities and struggle with many of the same issues of peer pressure, self-image, and family relationships that preteens experience throughout the world. Pita, for example, is the daughter of a conservative and affluent Mexican family, who breaks the traditional expectations of her parents to solve a mystery.

Each of the Karito Kids finds herself on an adventure where she’ll need to draw upon her intelligence, courage, and self-confidence–valuable traits for real life kids as well.

I only wish that these high-quality and fun dolls were priced to be accessible to more children.

The Karito Kids are a great alternative to the usual dolls for school aged children, linking reading with play, encouraging charitable giving, and promoting awareness of other cultures.

    I saw these in the Hearthsong catalog and they are darling. I liked Ling and Zoe. These are such a nice alternative to some of the other dolls out there that I’m not so wild about!

  6. nicole says:

    I like both the Zoe and Lulu dolls. Since my daughter already has an abundance of dolls that look like her I would probably choose the Lulu doll. They are very cool!

  7. mmc67 says:

    I love all of these but would have to pick Gia

  8. Jennifer P says:

    I like Pita best–but my second choice would be Zoe!

  9. The Fritz Facts says:

    I love Zoe because she shops at vintage shops, and so do we! I think for the charity I would do education, since if you learn you can do more for yourself and others.

  10. lusciousnis says:

    I like Zoe, Pita being my 2nd choice. They are all gorgeous, though. I’d pick the Health charity.

  11. pearl says:

    I like Zoe and Gia

  18. ckbabyj says:

    I have a one yr old daughter who I have to raise with th knowledge of both of her races ( a mix of white and black) I love what these dolls stand for and there character. However, I’m most interested in Lulu from Keyna and Zoe from the U.S. This would be invaluable for my little girl, also something I would never be able to afford. Thank you.

  19. Candes says:

    Zoe is such an adorable dol!!!

  20. ariyana9501 says:

    I simply adore Gia! My oldest daughter would absolutely love her! I liked all the dolls, but Gia is, by far, my favorite!

  21. Erica says:

    If Pita isn’t an option, it would have to be Gia…but I’d have to get two of them to please both girls!

  22. lisalmg says:

    The are all so cute but my daughter would really love to win Gia!

  23. Stacey Moore says:

    Love the Gia Doll!!

  24. gabbygatorsmom says:

    I would like Gia from Italy, I think. I wish they offered a Native American doll. It is almost impossible to find one. But, Gia does look like she could pass for one, so I choose her. I would choose the Health option on Charity. These are beautiful dolls, I too wish they were more affordable!
    Merry Christmas everyone!

  25. purango says:

    Zoe from the USA the charity would be Grant a Wish Foundation

  26. Miranda23 says:

    We’d love Lulu or Zoe.. they’re both adorable. And we’d choose the category of “hope” for charity.
