For Purpose Kids is committed to helping kids and families journey through a world of global cultures with diverse characters and imaginative stories that build empathy, connection, and belonging.
Our Global Kidizen dolls and stories cultivate wonder and acceptance of others around the world by highlighting similarities and celebrating differences through storytelling and play.
"These dolls are sweet, endearing and lovely quality. Anything that makes what could seem foreign relatable, approachable, and explorable can help a child imagine what it would be like to walk a mile in someone else's shoes. This skill - empathy - sparked by play and curiosity is a gift for the next generation of young minds and hearts. These dolls are a great tool to help us play with our kids in ways that are culturally aware, diversified, and imaginative. Bravo!"
-Christina Garcia, Clinical Pediatric Therapist.
"Mommy, she has dark curly hair like me! My daughter loved playing with this beautifully crafted doll, and she was so excited that they looked alike! She enjoyed learning more about Mapenzi's culture, and she was so excited that they both love to express themselves through music. The digital story was engaging and helped start great conversations. We look forward to continuing to learn alongside For Purpose Kids!”
