Founded in 2005, Baby Abuelita Productions was created by a pair of working mothers: Hilda Argilagos-Jimenez, a dance teacher and Carol Fenster, a psychotherapist. “We wanted to create a doll that preserved tradition and warm memories,” said Fenster. “But our dolls have managed to do that and more. We get emails from teachers and parents who are using these dolls to educate their children and teach them Spanish, which is a wonderful thing.”
Baby Abuelita Productions, LLC. was recently awarded the 2008 Toy of the Year and Preferred Choice Award by Creative Child’s Awards Program for Abuelita Rosa and Abuelito Pancho. The Creative Child’s Awards panel consisted of over 50 moms and educators.
