Girls Explore is, first and foremost, dedicated to the idea that girls can do or be anything they want.
Sitting around the holiday table during the fall of 2002, my sisters and I were lamenting the lack of certain types
of toys for girls. We concluded that this led to the difficulty girls have in finding role models and getting good information about careers,
often resulting in their limited ambitions. Over the next several months that conversation and others led to the concept for Girls Explore.
Girls Explore broadens the horizon of possibilities for girls through role models in major fields of science, sports, the arts,
the humanities, and business and professions. Each role is a reflection of the woman who is a leader in her field. Later in 2004 we will have dolls
representing woman role models for girls to play with. We offer a website with links to other great sites about women role models and topics of interest
and education for girls and boys to explore their potential.
Along with the information on our website, we have developed
dolls based on contemporary and historical women role models. These dolls are modeled after real women and can be used for play or just collecting.
Besides the dolls, girls can enjoy the biography, activity pack, and accessory that accompany each doll. We believe that play and visual materials can
encourage girls and boys to explore many areas and develop positive role models for life.
In addition, Girls Explore offers biographies on each
person represented in the doll collection. We also have a rich collection of
online biographies for learning and research.
As young people read the biographies on the women they are learning what it takes to succeed in certain fields and the values that will help them
throughout life. They also become aware of the many different careers as options for themselves.
