Hearts for Hearts Girls 2012

From left to right: Mosi representing the Navajo Nation, Zelia representing Brazil and Lauryce representing New Orleans with a tie in to Haiti.

Remember these cuties from my Toy Fair report? According to the Hearts for Hearts Girls Facebook page Lauryce (who had the possible name of Rue when we first saw her at Toy Fair) and Zelia will be released online and in stores on July 10th. Mosi does not have a specific release date as of yet.

Lauryce is definitely on my shopping list as soon as I see her in stores!

A portion of the profits from each doll and outfit will be donated to a non-profit organization that helps children from each of the girls’ countries. Each doll also comes with a code you can use to unlock a free membership at www.hearts4heartsgirls.com. With the free membership girls can learn more about their doll and the country, culture and people she represents. There are also games that every girl can play – with or without a code.
