Still unsure what to get the special little girl in your life? Well, HollyBaby would like to suggest a Global Girl doll — because not only is their collection educational, it’s also fun to play with!
The holiday season is upon us, which means it’s time to start racking your brain in hopes of coming up with brilliant gift ideas for all of the people you love. Thankfully, HollywoodLife.com’s HollyBaby is here to help you out with the little girls in your life. We spoke EXCLUSIVELY to Kimberly Conrad from Global Girls to tell you what makes their collection of dolls so different from the rest.
Global Girl Dolls: Perfect Gift For Little Girls
It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Well, that is if you aren’t struggling over gift ideas.
Kids — specifically little girls — can be tricky to shop for. Once they hit 6 years old they know what they like, what they want, and their interests start to form along with their tiny personalities.
And that is what makes Global Girl dolls, which retail for $89.99 each, a perfect fit for little ones ages 6 to 12.

“Global Girl appeals to school age girls who love fashion and want a new ‘friend’ as opposed to a baby doll,” Kimberly told HollywoodLife.com in a recent interview.
“Global Girl also delivers an important educational benefit teaching girls about their peers around the globe and providing them with culturally diverse toys both of which are important to parents.”
Global Girl Dolls Are Not Just Fun, They’re Educational
If you’re wondering what the educational aspect of a Global Girl can be, it’s that they teach little girls about different cultures from all over the world.
Right now, the collection consists of 6 dolls from 6 different countries: France, Argentina, China, the United States, Russia, and South Africa.
Each girl also has a unique name and dress style, such as Tatiana from Russia whose ensemble consists of a faux fur hat and coat to keep her warm. So stylish!
Not to mention, the girls are all average-sized — and not all “blonde bombshells.” Because they are meant to be little girls, just like their future playmates.
However, the most interesting part of the dolls is that they each have their own story — which is available in book format!
“The story lines in each doll’s book are meant to appeal to girls anywhere with favorite themes such as the love of fashion, animals, playing sports, cooking and the importance of friendship,” Kimberly explained.
Each book also includes a “diary entry” from the doll itself, so your little ones can really connect with their new friend. How cute is that?
Global Girl Dolls Will Expand Very Soon
Right now there are only 6 dolls in the collection, but more dolls from different parts of the world are set to launch sooner rather than later.
Kimberly told us that the next collection will be European, and dolls will be from England, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Spain and Sweden.
Plus, very soon the dolls will have an Olympics connection!
“We will also launch a doll prior to the Olympics every 2 years from the country that will host the games (thus Russia in the first collection). The next such doll will be from Brazil to represent the summer games happening there in 2016,” Kimberly told us.
That’s pretty cool — and also a great way to get your children interested in the Olympic games!
