Hearts For Hearts Girls Party

I was recently contacted by MommyParties to host a Hearts For Hearts Girls Party!

Lexie was so excited for the party! She thought the dolls were so cool and couldn't wait to share them with her friends!

Hearts for Hearts Girls are a wonderful product!  Each doll is from a different country and comes with her own book that tells her story.  The best part of this product, is that it actually helps others!  A portion the proceeds are donated to help needy girls.

From the Hearts For Hearts Girls site:  "When you buy a doll, Hearts For Hearts Girls donates part of the purchase price through our charitable partner, World Vision, to programs that support girls in that country. Whether it’s malaria nets in Africa, schoolbooks in Asia, or food supplies in the US, these programs help girls to thrive and succeed."  These dolls can be purchased right on their website.  You can also connect with Hearts For Hearts Girls on facebook.

For the party, we were sent Consuelo from Mexico and Nahji from India for the girls to play with.  In addition, we received Passport activity books, coupons, and bracelets.  Each guest got a bracelet to keep and a bracelet to give to a friend!

After a brief introduction, the girls got to "meet" the dolls.  We  went through the Passport activity books.  The girls got to fill out a section about them, including drawing a self portrait.  We then flipped through the book, learned a bit about each doll, and the girls marked them off on their passport with stickers as they said hello in each language!

One of the party activities was a favorite of mine!  The girls decorated water bottle banks.  The goal is to save change, and when the bottle is full they can donate it to World Vision's Clean Water Fund!

All of the girls loved the dolls.  They really enjoyed playing with them, and thought they were beautiful!

This party was a great after school activity for the girls!  They all had a great time!

As a mom, I appreciate the fact that these dolls are a joy to play with, but most important, they give back!

Thank you to MommyParties and to Hearts For Hearts Girls for this opportunity!



*I received a party kit from MommyParties and Hearts For Hearts Girls in exchange for hosting this party.  No monetary compensation was received.

  4. Oh wow - what a great way to introduce kids to other cultures! I love that! It looks like they were a great hit & the water bottle activity is awesome!

    Emma isn't into dolls much anymore (sniff - has she outgrown them already?), but maybe I can start buying her the Barbies from around the world for the same experience. We have family all over the world & being Egyptian I do try to expose Emma to our culture and many others - this would be another great tool!
