EDITOR'S REVIEW
OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

You've been chosen to go on an extraordinary adventure alongside Pemberly, Maud, and Zari, the first three dolls in the Worldgirls doll line. Each large doll represents an 11-year-old girl from a different part of the world, and they've all been invited to attend the mysterious Worldgirls Hall in the ancient land of Thiri. Pemberly from New York is an explorer. Maud from Sweden is the rebel. And Zari from Barbados is the scholar. Together, the girls use their unique character traits to make the world a better place.

This is the world that kids enter through a brief introduction on the back of each doll's box and a small storybook sealed in an envelope that comes with each doll. When kids open the envelope and remove the book, it's almost like they're being invited to attend Worldgirls Hall, too. The stories give some background on who the characters are and how they find themselves as part of the chosen few to attend this special school. 

Each doll also comes with a set of self-adhesive patches in symbols that represent the doll's specific trait. For Pemberly, that's a star. Maud's symbol is a lightning bolt. And Zari's is a key. One patch gets stuck to the doll's sweater, and the other one is for girls to wear.

Then there are the beautiful dolls themselves. Each 18-inch doll has a soft cloth body with movable smooth vinyl limbs, as well as great details in the clothing and styling of the dolls, such as their rooted eyelashes.

Pemberly has curly honey brown hair and hazel eyes. She wears a green sweater embroidered with the school logo, and underneath that a multi-colored graffiti print dress and white high-top canvas sneakers. Because this doll wears a dress, underwear is included.

Maud wears a cropped blue velvet jumper and a white sleeveless T-shirt with an art deco print underneath. The jumper has a patent leather pocket on the front. Over this she wears an orange sweater embroidered with the school logo. On her feet, she's got pink socks and light blue, lemon-printed canvas slip-ons. She's got straight red hair with bangs, blue eyes, and freckles. 

Studious Zari is outfitted in a blue school sweater with a sleeveless purple diamond-print top underneath and a silver pleated skirt with elastic detail. She wears a matching purple diamond-print headband in her dark brown, blow-dried hair with just a few curly wisps hanging loose in the front. On her feet are neon yellow two-strap sandals. This doll has brown eyes and also comes with underwear.

Is It Fun?

First off, the dolls look gorgeous. And the line includes dolls with different hair colors, eye colors, and skin tones, not to mention different personalities, so that all girls can see themselves and their interests represented in one of the Worldgirls. And why will girls want to do that? Because these aren't just dolls; they're vehicles into an imaginative world. What's cool about the storytelling aspect is that it starts the story but encourages girls to keep telling it through the play with the dolls.
