Teaching My Daughter Latino Culture with Vi and Va Dolls

This is a compensated campaign in collaboration with Vi and Va Dolls and Latina Bloggers Connect.


I remember loving my fashion dolls when I was a little girl. My best friend and I would play with them for hours! I got some for my daughter as soon as I knew I was having a girl and saved them until she was old enough to play with them. Now she wants to play all the time with me and I have fun role playing with her.

I was so thrilled to see the line of fashion dolls called Vi and Va that are inspired by Latino cultures. Viviana and Valentina are two teen sisters and Felicia and Roxxi are their best friends who are also their cousins. Being Puerto Rican, I can definitely relate as I am very close to sisters and cousins. I was so happy to see how different all four dolls are as it covers the melting pot of Latinos for all over. I love how each girl has their own talents. Viviana has her little guitar because she loves music. Valentina comes with a baking dish of cookies and a recipe book because she loves to cook. Felicia comes with a paint brush and paint kit because she loves to create art. Roxxi comes with a radio because she loves to dance.



My favorite was Valentina because she looks the most like my daughter and she likes to cook like my daughter and I. I let my daughter bring Valentina to the kitchen as we made dinner. Then we had fun role playing with her little kitchen and Valentina making empanadas while the other girls sat and watched. My daughter loved changing their clothes and brushing their hair too.


In addition to the four dolls there is also a Birthday Celebration set, Fashion Designer set, Hair Stylist set, and a Head Styling Doll head. (I think we will be purchasing that one next!) You can find the entire line of Vi and Va dolls and sets exclusively at Target. Follow Vi and Va on Facebook and Twitter to get all the latest product news.

  7. Dolls--I had a bunch of dolls dressed in foreign dress when I was a child--those I didn't play with very much. I had my favorite baby doll that I named Honey--she literally came with me everywhere!!

  8. How cute are those dolls? As a mother of three girls, I want them to have a of range of toys. They have things that are marketed specifically to girls, things marketed for boys, dolls that resemble them, and dolls that don't.
