Review: Hearts for Hearts Girls - Mosi - Native American

Disclaimer:  I was given the products in this post for the purpose of a review. 
I was not paid in any way to write this review.
All opinions are my own.

Mommy has been under the impression that I needed a new doll since the ones I currently walk around with have definitely seen some good times. I got them last Christmas so mommy decided that it was time to start looking for a new one for this Christmas. While doing her regular research mommy happened upon this company that had the most beautiful dolls. They dolls were from different countries and had such a beautiful story behind them that mommy decided to contact the company to see if I could get one. They agreed and now I get to introduce to you Hearts for Hearts Girls from Playmates Toys. 

Every Hearts For Hearts Girls® doll is inspired by real girls from real places around the world. Each doll has her own story to tell, with ideas about how to make life better for her family, community, country, and the world around her. When you buy a doll, a dollar of the purchase price is donated to programs that support children in that doll's region. 
Whether it's malaria nets in Ethiopia, warm blankets in Appalachia, or ducks in India, Hearts For Hearts Girls' mission is to help girls thrive—and to empower all girls everywhere to "change the world one heart at a time!".
$27.99 - Recommended for ages 6+

Mommy and I were lucky enough to receive Mosi - Native American to review. This is the first review where mommy decided that a review product was too beautiful for me to play with. Mommy said Mosi was a collectible and belonged to her. Really?! What exactly is a collectible? I thought all items sent to Growing Up Madison was for Madison to play with. Apparently mommy thinks Mosi is too good for me and she might be right. 

Mosi is a 10-year-old native American girl living with her family on a sheep ranch just outside of Santa Fe, New Mexico. Her mother is a potter who wants to keep alive the art of their culture. Her father runs the ranch, taking care of their sheep and llamas. 

In the summer, Mosi visits her grandmother, who lives on the reservation. She listens as her grandmother tells old stories abut their people, and learns how to spin yarn from sheep's wool. Sometimes they go to a pow-wow and watch the dancers in their beautiful costumes. When asked why she doesn't leave the reservation for Santa Fe, Grandmother says, "My heart cannot walk two paths." Mosi wonders if she can be a girl that does. 
Now besides being beautiful mommy likes that with each purchase a portion of the funds from each doll helps out the country the doll is from. There are dolls from all over the world and there is nothing like helping another country in need. Think of it as your good deed for the year. Mosi's donation goes to benefit North American Native Americans.

Now these dolls are full of character and detail and comes with their own little story book. The book is full of details of their life and history. My Mosi came along with her own little comb as well. There was even a Hearts for Hearts Girls bracelet that I can wear (if mommy lets me) showing my support. 

The recommended age for these dolls are 6+ so they are not soft. If I hit myself with her I would surely feel it. Now on to her details. A lot of thought went into her details from her beautiful brown eyes to her shiny black hair. Her eyes are painted so they do not close so if you're wanting a doll whose eyes can close you will be disappointed. Don't let that deter you from getting her though, she's beautiful with her eyes open as you can see. The feather in her hair is plastic unfortunately, mommy and I were hoping for a real feather. Even her accessories were well done. 

From her earrings, her bracelet and even her little boots we loved. Her clothing is Native American inspired with her print dress and leggings. Her silver eagle earrings were just adorable and so was her silver heart bangle. I can just imagine Mosi running around her little village playing with the other children.

Mommy and I LOVE our Hearts for Hearts Girls doll and we hope that you would pick one up for little one or even yourself this Holiday season. Show your support and get one today. Hearts for Hearts Girls definitely gets my Two Tiny Thumbs Up and Mommy's Big Thumbs Up as well! 
Hearts for Hearts Girls  are available at ToysRUs, Target, Amazon, Meijer, Walmart and Barnes & Noble. You can also buy your own Hearts for Hearts Girls on Playmates Toys website and connect with them via their social media pages:

  1. Mosi is very beautiful, Mommy is right, Mosi should be put away or on a shelf because she is collectable. My Mother was Native American so I am especially fond of Mosi. How nice that a portion of the funds go to the country that the doll is from. You are a lucky little girl that Mommy is going to save this for you until you are older.

  2. What a great idea. This will help children understand and respect others from different areas. I think this is very cool. Thank you for sharing this.

  3. I am looking for a doll for my older granddaughter and I think this would be perfect to add to her collection.

  4. I love how money is donated to children when you purchase one of these dolls! These are great! Too bad I don't have any girls to get one for. :-/

  5. Sometimes I look at all the cool toys out these days and think to myself "why wasn't this cool stuff around back when I was a kid". This is no exception - these dolls are awesome.

  6. Don't feel bad Madison--back many many many years ago I was given collectible dolls that I wasn't allowed to play with either! These are definitely collectible and I hust might start buying some for my grand niece who will be born in February!

  7. These dolls look amazing how beautiful and i think it is even better that they each have their own story and country really good way of getting children to learn about and respect other races/cultures :-)

  8. Oh,Mosi is indeed beautiful. I wish they have a Filipino doll.:)
    Its also nice that a portion of what you pay for it goes to charity.

  9. What a beautiful doll! I love the fact some of the pennies goes to charity as well that is always a nice touch. x

  10. These are such a unique take on the traditional dolls. My girls would really get into learning about the different cultures.

  11. She is absolutely beautiful. I have all boys so we do not get dolls at our house often, only when company comes down.

  12. What a beautiful little doll, and I love that the company promotes and aids so many different countries. Need to have a little girl so we can buy dolls instead of trucks, lol.

  13. what a pretty doll, I love all of her accessories and detail. It is neat that they donate some of the money to different countries

  14. That is a beautiful doll. I'm sure Madison is loving this one! I think it's cool that they are inspired by real girls and different nationalities.

  15. Mosi is a beautiful doll and how neat is it that they also donate money to Native Americans with purchase of this doll? I wish they had these dolls when my daughter was younger. We have Cherokee heritage and this would have been great!

  16. That's great that each doll comes with a book and that they're available in Barnes and Noble. For every school that has a book fair with that bookstore (and there are MANY) they can buy the doll and make money for their school!

  17. This sounds like a great toy, especially since it teaches kids about diversity.

  18. Those dolls are beautiful, love that they are diverse and I love the fact that some of the proceeds go to charity.

  19. The dolls are beautiful. I also like how they support the country of origin

  20. She is beautiful! I wonder what tribe she is supposed to be from? Navajo?

  21. Wow, that doll is absolutely beautiful! This definitely would be a doll I would just have displayed and not let my daughter play with - it's too pretty!

  22. This doll is absolutely beautiful. Omg, the face. I love how all the dolls have a different story, what a great doll for little girls. Thank you for the great share.

  23. I LOVE these dolls. I won a doll a month ago and she's gorgeous. I'm saving it to give to my daughter for Christmas but I seriously want to rip open the packaging and play with it.

    I also love that a portion of the funds raised from sales of the dolls support the country that the doll is "from". That's something I can put my money behind!

    Wishing you a lovely day.

  24. I love these dolls. The fact that part of the purchase goes to a good cause is great as well. Sorry Madison but I'm with mommy on this, this is definitely a collectible. :)
