A Baby Abuelita doll is a unique plush doll designed to preserve the Hispanic heritage.
I never would have paid much attention to a Hispanic doll in the past, but both my sister and my sister-in-law have introduced our families to the Hispanic heritage by having daughters who are half Hispanic.
It changed my perspective on things and made me excited that a doll like this existed.
Originally conceived by two working mothers – a teacher and a psychotherapist – “Los Abuelitos” were designed to preserve Hispanic heritage for every generation. Abuelita Rosa and Abuelito Pancho are sweet, loveable, lullaby singing dolls who invite you to join them on a nostalgic journey as they sing “canciones de cuna”, the traditional Hispanic songs of early childhood.
These songs were traditional games and nursery rhymes passed down from generations. As more Hispanic children are born in the United States, these Hispanic-Americans are losing part of their heritage since these songs are not being taught because older Hispanics are forgetting them.
Baby Abuelita has six different dolls that all sing 5 lullabies in Spanish. My favorite is Baby Andrea because she actually looks a like like one of my nieces.
Our unique line of plush dolls sings very special nursery rhymes that will warm your heart, recapture the memories of your childhood and teach a new generation the joys of Hispanic musical heritage.
Baby Andrea, wearing a blue gingham dress with white bows, sings…
- El patio de mi casa
- Tengo una muñeca
- A la rueda rueda
- Duermete mi niña
Item description: This 17″ soft and cuddly plush doll come in it’s own unique packaging designed to appear like a rocking chair. Baby Andrea sings 5 special songs preserving Hispanic heritage.
Baby Andrea is very cute and soft. Her expression is adorable and she is very cute in her blue gingham dress. My daughter was extremely interested in her and even though the lullabies are in Spanish, she liked listening to the music. The voice that sings the songs is appealing and sweet.
Where to buy a Baby Abuelita Doll
Unfortunately, it seems that finding a Baby Abuelita doll has become pretty difficult, especially Baby Abuelita Rosa doll and Baby Abuelita Andrea doll. At one point people were saying that the Abuelita Rosa doll Walmart carried but I can only find Abuelita Poncho available anywhere. He’s available on Amazon.
You can check eBay for the dolls. Currently there is an Abuelita Andrea available but it’s only available for another day or so, then the auction ends. Plenty of Abuelito Pancho dolls though. Although currently the price is better on Amazon so check there first.
I did find some alternative dolls and plush if you want to check them out, though none quite up to the cuteness of a Baby Abuelita doll.
Good luck, it’s really a shame that they don’t make these Baby Abuelita dolls anymore.
