I bought this doll for my daughter after I saw it in a store. I had a choice of several Kairto dolls, but I was taken with just how beautiful "LuLu" was and I loved that she was also athletic. I knew she was much more economical than an Am. Girl Doll (as are almost all Karito dolls). After purchasing the doll /but before giving her as a x-mas gift I started to worry if my daughter (age 5 1/2) would like her as much as I did. Our family does not share the same ethnic characteristics as Lulu from Kenya and I was wondering what my daughters reaction would be. It turns out that my "Anglo" daughter thought she was beautiful too, and commented on that for the next several days. After we got the doll out of the box I was able to see how well made the doll and the outfit are - very good quality. My daughter loves to dress her for daytime and then bedtime,(with extra outfits I bought)-good fine motor skills practice. We are only 1/2 way through the enclosed mystery book, which is not well written, but that is not a big deal to me. We are able to use the doll and her background in other educational ways, not just with the book. (Oh yeah - I am not a fan of buying a imaginative play item and then putting a child in front of the internet - so we have not explored the website yet.) I am very happy with this purchase, and highly recommend this doll to anyone.

I purchased this doll as a gift for my daughter. We have two other World Collection dolls (Zoe and Ling) and we like the quality of these dolls. Lulu's face is beautiful, and we really like the idea that each of these dolls has a unique face; in other words, unlike other doll companies, it isn't just the same doll with different colored eyes and hair, with different clothes. The face is actually a different sculpture, making the doll new with each country she represents. Would highly recommend this product.

I found the Karito kids on a website by accident, and immediately became very interested. I am a big doll collector, and after 3 years of buying American Girls, I wanted to try something else. These dolls are stunning! I love the fact that their faces are very close to their ethnicity, and that they can wear the American girl clothes because I have so many of them, and the Karito kids outfits are very hard to find. I would definitely recommend these dolls. Haven't read the books yet, but will. Also have Ling from China(?), and she is as wonderful as Lulu.I know this is a newer company, and I believe they didn't realize how popular their dolls would be, because they are rarely in stock and often on back-order. At some point I hope that more outfits and furniture,and accessories become available. Until then, those items I will have to continue to get from American Girl.

This doll is absolutely beauutiful. She is a few inches taller then the popular 16 inch doll, but she could still share clothing ( it is just a bit shorter). She has a storybook about her and her life in Africa. A little pricey, but I would recommend her anyway.

I thought she couldn't get any prettier than the picture, but wow, when i seen her in person i was so impressed and in awe. She is a beauty and so well made and sturdy. Her features is so well constructed and truly shows her ethnicity. I agree like many have said about the karito dolls, she actually looks African American( they show the true beauty so well) , not just dipped in chocolate. I love this doll, i will be collecting them all soon.

It's difficult to find quality ethnic dolls that aren't just Caucasian dolls with darkened coloring. In fact, most of the African-American dolls my daughter owns don't even have curly hair, but rather were made with long straight locks. Lulu is a beautiful doll who looks more natural than most African-American dolls, INCLUDING her beautiful black CURLY hair.

Her down side, and this pertains to all the Karito Kids dolls of her size, is that it's difficult to find clothing to fit her unless you order the items made specifically for the Karito Kids dolls. (Which, in my opinion, is a bit costly.) Even the American Girl dolls fit into some clothing from other manufacturers -- a great way to save money!

All that said, though, I love the educational and international aspects of Lulu and wish Karito Kids offered even more dolls than they already do.

This is a gorgeous doll. I am sorry the company went broke and your can't get them anymore. I can imagine a six year old absolutely adoring this doll. It is also great to have a ethnic doll that does not look like a caucasian doll in a different plastic. Her hair is beautiful.

I love this doll, I am a collector. I've bought two additional Lulus as gifts! The book is well written and Karito Kids has a wonderful philosophy that introduces young children to the importance of sharing and caring. Also allows for a deeper appreciation of different cultures.
