Karito Kids Travel Charmer

Karito Kids Travel Charmer

Fall 2008 Toys
Ages: 3 & Up
Manufacturer: KidsGive
Price: $20.00
Review:
The colorful 16" soft Gia Travel Charmer doll holds much of the same appeal as her 21" hard-bodied counterpart for a fraction of the price. The Gia Travel Charmer provides full access to the Karito Kids Web site that's packed full of facts embedded in games and also offers the same charitable component, with three percent of the purchase price donated to charity. Children can vote online to support a specific type of charity including education, medical supplies and housing and once their decision is made, they can find out how their donation is being used-for instance, exactly how many mosquito nets will be purchased with their contribution. Although Travel Charmers aren't designed to change their clothing, the dolls are well-made whose style of dress, charm and corresponding Web page teaches kids about cultural differences in playful ways.
