Have you heard of the Only Hearts Club®? Only Hearts Club® was founded in 2004 as a small, family-owned company that featured six soft and fully poseable dolls and twelve doll outfits.
Throughout the years, Only Hearts Club® has created more dolls and even included more outfits, pets, little sisters and horses!
Ceili Fey enjoyed playing with the dolls. She thought they and the ballet studio were fantastic - she immediately put on a show for some of her other dolls.
They also have small storybooks that teach great lessons. We received the book "Dancing Dilemma", about Karina Grace who helps Hannah Faith improve her ballet only to have Hannah improve more than Karina had planned - enough to win a much coveted spot in the Nutcracker. Karina deals with disappointment as well as jealousy in positive ways.
Additionally, we received a membership kit that included a mini version of the book "It's Hard to Say Good-Bye". Another good book, dealing with loss of a beloved pet and friendship.
Now, granted, I'm not the one in the family that plays with dolls so I mostly left this up to my eight year old daughter to really do the hands-on review of the Only Hearts Club Ballet Studio Theater Promotional Set. It was a hit.
These dolls are different than Barbie dolls in (great) ways:
They look like children (tweens) which is the target audience
They are not well-endowed females
They are dressed in cute, yet modest outfits - no midriff bearing, miniskirt wearing dolls here
