TimetoPlayMag.com Ratings and Reviews
At TimetoPlayMag.com, we want to engage, inform and entertain our readers to give them the benefit of our knowledge, experience and the breadth of products we cover. We look at more than 10,000 new toys and children’s products every year, and our primary purpose is to help you make the best choices for the kids in your life.
Our goal is to give you the real story on what you’ll find when you bring a toy home. And we know that every kid and every family is different. That’s why we always say: “The hot toy is only hot if it’s hot for your child.”
Our editorial team has more than 100 years combined experience working in the toy industry. Our rating system ranks toys on 4 key criteria:
- Fun — Does it engage the child? Does it inspire imaginative play? Does it contribute to creative expression? Is it entertaining?
- Repeat Play OR Collectibility — Some toys are played with, some are collected. If we feel a toy is better suited for collectibility, we’ll rank it based on Collectibility instead of Repeat Play.
- Repeat Play — Will kids come back to it over time? Does the toy allow diverse imaginative play experiences? Does it provide longer-term play value?
- Collectibility — Some toys may have limited traditional play, but kids will treasure them as collectibles.
- Assembly/Instructions — Is the toy easy to assemble? Are the instructions clear?
Over the years we’ve learned a lot about what makes great toys and exciting play experiences. We want to help you create the best experiences for your kids and your family.
Ultimately, you’re the best judge of what you want to bring into your home — and what’s best for your kids. And because you’re an important part of the Time to Play family, we invite you to let us know if you ever find an error or have any ideas how we can better help you. After all, we exist for one reason: to help you have more fun!
What It Is
The Karito Kids Play a Role Collection features soft mini dolls and foldout playsets in two styles: Ballerina and Fashionista. Open the box, and it instantly turns into a playset with pop-out 3-D furniture and room décor. Each nine-inch Play a Role Collection doll comes with a four-inch soft pet dog and a hairbrush. When playtime is done, everything fits back inside the box for easy clean-up and storage.
As with all Karito Kids products, a portion of the proceeds from each Play a Role Collection purchase goes toward Plan USA's Because I am a Girl education fund, which identifies the education, support, and nurturing of girls as key to ending the cycle of poverty.
Why It’s Fun
Ever since Karito Kids were introduced in 2007, the doll line has promoted charity and global awareness among girls through play. The new Karito Kids Play a Role Collection is designed to show girls in the U.S. and Canada how they can "play a role" and make a difference in the lives of real girls in the developing world.
First and foremost, girls will like playing with these dolls and playsets. The foldout playsets offer inspiration for creative play with the dolls. The charitable component will resonate more with older girls who can visit the Karito Kids website (www.karitokids.com) to learn more about the Karito Kids characters through games and activities and Plan USA.
Who It’s For
The Karito Kids Play a Role Collection is for ages 3 and up.
What to Be Aware of
The doll and pet are attached to the cardboard playset. Be careful removing the doll and pet so that you don't accidentally damage the playset.
The Karito Kids Play a Role Collection is available at select Sam's Club and specialty stores.
