“Cousins are the first friends we have as children.”

My cousin recently posted that on Facebook, and it’s so true. My two younger cousins and I grew up together almost like sisters and spent every minute we could playing dolls together. So it goes without saying that we would have loved these new Vi and Va Dolls.

These new fashion dolls from MGA Entertainment are inspired by Latin culture. Named for sisters Viviana and Valentina, the complete set includes four dolls, all of whom are best friends and cousins. The line of dolls, which also includes accessories and other playsets, are available exclusively at Target.

There’s a lot to like about Vi and Va dolls. They are all family members, but they represent the breadth of Latina skintones, eye color and hair color. Their faces are so pretty, yet the makeup looks light and fresh.

I also appreciate that Vi and Va dolls have figures that are more modest than many other fashion dolls. They are less busty, have sturdier, stronger legs and their waists seem proportionate to the rest of their bodies. No overly voluptuous figures here, and that’s refreshing for dolls who are supposed to be in their teens.

Another plus, these ladies have personality! Each doll comes with a story, passions and unique talents.

Vi and Va Dolls

Viviana is the older sister. At 16, she loves music and can play the guitar. She’s also a fashionista and loves creating new looks.

Valentina is Vi’s younger sister. This 15-year-old is a chef in the making and loves to prepare family recipes. When she isn’t in the kitchen, she’s thinking up new ways to style her hair.

Roxxi is Vi and Va’s 18-year-old cousin. A dancer, Roxxi has the moves, whether it be in ballet, hip-hop or salsa.

Felicia is another cousin. Creative and sensitive, this 17-year-old has a passion for the arts and expressing herself.

My cousins and I, like so many young girls, let our imaginations run wild with our dolls. We turned shoeboxes into doll cars, we turned bookshelves into apartments, we made slips of paper into doll books. Taking some inspiration from each doll’s own personality and a little child-like ingenuity, I thought of a few fun ways girls can play using the dolls, their big personalities and items around my home.
