Dolls are definitely a great way to inspire imagination and in many cases they provide opportunities for learning, too. One of the doll lines that helps kids learn about the world around them is Karito Kids.
The Karito Kids Travel Charmers line is a smaller, soft and squeezable version of the Karito Kids characters who are visiting different countries of the world. The Travel Charmers dolls are 16″ tall with embroidered facial features and brushable hair.
We got the Pita Goes to Argentina Travel Charmer to review. My daughter immediately loved Pita and brushing her long black hair. Pita is dressed for an Argentinian horse riding adventure with her ruffled purple shirt and pink riding pants.
Each Travel Charmers doll comes with a charm that can go on a Karito Kids charm bracelet or on clogs (like Crocs). The Pita Goes to Argentina doll came with a cowboy boot charm that is too cute.
Additionally, every Karito Kids purchase benefits another child. Three percent of the retail price of every Karito Kids product is donated to the charity, World Change – and by activating their products, kids get to decide how the donation is distributed – to food, health, home or school for a child in an another part of the world.
The Karito Kids website is a great place for kids to play as well – play games, printable activities and send e-cards. When you create an account and activate a product, your child gets a Karito Kids passport to track the points they have to donate, points they have donated, points earned, and more.
There are 11 Travel Charmer dolls to choose from – which is your favorite? Piper goes to Ireland is mine!
