Why It’s Fun
Abuelita Rosa encourages Hispanic-Americans to preserve their heritage through the doll's traditional Hispanic lullabies. The doll provides a fun way for Hispanic grandparents and parents specifically to introduce their own child to the songs their own Abuela and Abuelo would sing to them and continue to pass on the Hispanic language and traditions.
Who It’s For
Abuelita Rosa musical doll is for ages 2 and up.
The doll is best suited for kids and parents who are already familiar with the songs and Spanish language.
What To Be Aware Of
While the doll is described as a learning aid, there are no Spanish-English translations to the song's lyrics readily available. So it's best suited for families looking to preserve the Hispanic cultural tradition and educate their children, rather than educating non-Spanish speakers.
Three AA batteries are required and included.
