For Purpose Kids launched a unique collection of hand-knit dolls called Global Kidizens that inspire empathy through play. The diverse group of dolls helps kids to embrace other cultures and create a sense of belonging, especially since each character in the collection was developed with partners from the country. Thanks to this detail, the dolls support authentic experiences and stories from their countries of origin.
The sustainably crafted dolls for kids between the ages of three to eight represent Peru, India, China, Kenya and the United States. The soft dolls are made with non-toxic, sustainable, 100% cotton yarn by artisans in Peru with a certified fair-trade organization.
With every doll sold, a donation will be made to the organizations chosen by the home country partners.
