Win Karito Kids Doll Of Choice ($100 Value)

CONTESTS | | July 10, 2009 at 9:23 pm


CONTEST CLOSED, Winner: Nicole Choate !!!

You may have already read my Karito Kids review and now is the chance for you and your child to be a part of something larger than merely owning a toy. Every doll comes with a code that unlocks a charity of choice online. If that wasn’t enough the cultural experience from the doll and the included book would help broaden horizons beyond belief. Karito Kids has been kind enough to offer Mommy Niri readers to own one of the 5 dolls – Zoe from US, Gia from Italy, Lulu from Kenya, Pita from Mexico, and Wan Ling from China. The lucky winner would get to pick a doll of choice ($100 value).
