Dolls sometimes remind us of how we want to dress and fun things we want to do in life.
In my childhood I remember playing with dolls with frilly dresses, gowns and bikinis and making them go on little adventures. So much fun!
But how's this for cute? There is a new line of dolls that embraces Latinos and their (our) sense of family and friendship. But that's not the only thing the Vi and Va dolls embrace. They were created for Latino kids to embrace their personalities, goals, and even flaws. Love that.
Vi and Va are Vivianna and Valencia, they are sisters but also best friends. They hang out with their cousins Felicia and Roxxi. They have a cute bond that remind me of growing up with my cousins...my cousins were my first best friends when I was little. And even now, I consider a couple of cousins to be my best friends and my sisters.
I think there will be many Latino kids (and non) that can relate to the personalities and hobbies that these girls have.
Roxxi is the oldest of this doll troop. She is 18, a bit clumsy, but she turns up the beat on her boombox and the girl has rhythm. She loves to practices her pirouttes for Ballet class, but can also break it down dancing hip-hop.
Viviana (or Vi) is 16, a singer who loves to break out her guitar at family gatherings.
Felicia is 17 and sometimes has a hard time focusing. But has the biggest imagination and expresses it in her art. Painting is her favorite.
Valentina (or Va) is especially neat and organized. And at only 15 is quite the chef, whipping up empanadas and conchitas.
Growing up there wasn't much of a selection of cultural dolls, at least here in the U.S. But times are changing and thank goodness for that! Now the Vi and Va doll collection is here exclusively at Target. Do you like the how diverse they are in their looks, hobbies, and personalities? I do hope that they bring on a male primo or a prima with short hair. Wouldn't that be cool?
Speaking of cool.
