Language Littles Dolls Help Kids Learn Another Language

Bilingual Russian Doll by Language LittlesI want my daughter to enjoy the benefits of learning a foreign language. After reading The Bilingual Edge, I decided to introduce Spanish, since I’m proficient, and Russian, since I know a little and it is a heritage language for us.

We read books in these languages, listen to Baby’s First Steps in Spanish, and we play with Anya: the Bilingual Russian Doll by Language Littles.

Anya tells us, in both Russian and English, about her love of dancing. Although I wish she wasn’t wearing theatrical make-up and a pink glitter costume (and I wish they had included panties in her outfit), Anya provides a fun way for us to interact in Russian.  The child’s voice is cute without being annoying, the accent is clear, and the phrases fit well into a toddler’s natural routine.

We respond to Anya’s questions, have her jump and dance as she names those moves, and count along with her.

Bilingual Spanish Doll by Language LittlesLanguage Littles also has a Bilingual Spanish Doll, Bilingual Greek Doll, Bilingual Korean Doll, Bilingual Chinese Doll, and other bilingual dolls.

Another feature I appreciate is that they have little boy dolls in certain languages, as well: check out the Ricky, the Bilingual Spanish Doll, and the David, the Bilingual Hebrew Doll.

All these Language Littles Dolls are available at Kazoo Toys ($37).
