Doll of the Day – Hearts for Hearts Girls Zelia

When it comes to smaller dolls – specifically the 14″ size – one brand has captured my heart like no other! Hearts for Hearts Girls are created to help girls learn about different cultures and to understand that they can make a difference in their community and beyond. When you purchase a Hearts for Hearts Girl doll, a portion of the proceeds go to children’s charities that you can actually help choose. Zelia, today’s doll of the day, is from  Sao Paulo, Brazil and she helps her family learn better ways to work the coffee farm so that will be less harmful to the gorgeous rainforests that are around her.

Zelia is practicing for the Easter puppet show with Jeremy the frog. She is wearing Tipi’s Butterfly Pajamas which match her butterfly earrings nicely.

Zelia loves to play soccer, but she loves all her toys and animals, too. The Hearts for Hearts girls are only 14″ tall and make great companion dolls – they are the perfect size to take on daily adventures. They have a very soft vinyl body and although their head is slightly oversized, their faces are sweet and it works well.

Zelia has finished playing with her toys and has settled off in to dream land. She is wearing Disney Toddler Princess Merida’s gown and is imagining herself in the castle getting ready to sit down before the villagers are called in for a meeting. 

What do you think of the Hearts for Hearts Girls dolls? I am anxiously awaiting the new dolls, Mosi and Shola, due out this summer, but in the mean time, I do have Dell and Lillian on my doll wish list.

    Char, Did you see my question on yesterday’s doll of the day post?

    i have consolo, and i got her to be a little sister to Josephina and they are like twins! but consolo has a warmer skin tone and glosser eyes, so she make josie look like she has a grey tinge to her skin. the funny part is that she looks older than josie even though shes several inches smaller. all in all, she is so adorable!!!!!!!!!!!

  17. She is so darn cute! Sweet face! : )

  18. Zelia’s pretty! Where do you get them.

  19. You can get them at Amazon, Toys R Us, Target…

  20. Oh never mind, it says where to buy

  21. I really want a hearts for hearts girl doll sooooooooo bad!!!!! I don’t have one but I really want one! I keep spending my money on other dolls or doll stuff!

  22. Juliet XD says:

    sabrina- me too. i just cant help it!

  23. All h4h girls r so cute! But im still not getting one until there is one from Boston or a Jewish girl from Israel

  24. You can check on Target online if a Target near you has Mosi in the store. Some Target’s in CT have her already.

  25. Gail- My guess is that they will come out with an Israeli girl soon… :)

  26. Hi! I REALLY want a H4H doll!!!! They are SOOOOOOOOOOOO adorable!! My younger sister just ordered one today, it comes on Friday. But I’m going to wait until she comes to see if I want one though. If I get one I think I want Zelia or Lauryce! They are DEFINITLY my 2 faves! Are they sopposed to look like 6 to 8 year olds or 10 to 12 year olds or what? : )

  27. For Christmas my sister got Dell and I got Lillian!

  28. -Emily in their story the H4H are 10 years old. Hope this helps!!!

  29. I asked if you knew anything about It’s Me! dolls by the family company; like who they could share clothes with and stuff. I got one from a free flee market and the internet didn’t help much?

  30. Sorry about the question mark. Anyone who can help will be appreciated.

  31. @aginparadise I hope so!

  32. Elizabeth and her Dolls says:

    I am thinking of getting Lilian too! I have Dell, and she is beautiful! I’d recommend her to you!

  33. i love the look they all have in their eyes

  34. ags139 – Thanks so much!

  35. @Gail- Me too! I have no H4H dolls but I want one.

    I’m a big fan of Hearts for Hearts dolls. I think they are very good quality and durable. They can stand very well on their own which is not often the case with other dolls this size. Their heads are a bit oversized, that’s true. I’d rather they were more proportional. But you get used to it and you practically don’t see it unless you compare them to other dolls with better proportions. What I like especially is their articulation, you can tilt their heads and move the arms and legs more than in most other play dolls this size. I’m looking forward to Mosi and Shola!
    I have often thought of buying Zelia, but what discourages me is her bangs. It looks really awful to me. And I have a question to Char – can the bangs be somehow combed aside? Or do you think I could cut it off altogether without spoiling Zelia’s looks completely?

  37. I have Consuelo and Lauryce. I just love their sweet little faces!

  38. I have conselo I don’t know how to spell it. She’s really cute but I can’t find clothes that fit her

  39. -aglover the Dora explorer girls clothes fit H4HG except for the pants and shoes. You can get them at Tuesday morning if you have one around you also H4H sells clothes for the dolls.
    hope this helps!

    I have only seen the pictures of these dolls on Doll Diaries, but I think that they look adorable. A “Target” store opened reasonably close to where I live so I will visit at some point in the hope of seeing these dolls in person.

  41. I really want Dell!!!

  42. I like Lauryce a lot.

  43. I accidentally stumbled into the doll isle at Target, and Consuelo followed me home. :) I love all of them except for Nahji, actually.

  44. Funny how those accidents happen 😉
