The Bindi Irwin doll

the bindi doll

 She’s blonde and bubbly, but you won’t find this hiking boot-wearing, wildlife-loving Aussie cruising around in a hot pink convertible. The Bindi Irwin doll couldn’t be farther from Barbie and Bratz on the toy spectrum, forgoing mini-make-up kits and fake cell phones to teach girls about saving the environment. The 10-inch-tall replica of the child star, complete with puffy pigtails and outback garb. Some of the young kids want to be glamorous, she talks to them on their level and there is part of them that’s more comfortable with that.”  From plush cockatoos, wombats and pythons to 4-inch-tall rubber action figures with themes like Aquatic Adventure, the toys center around Bindi’s life at the Australia Zoo, where she and her family reside. Bindi comes with accessories, such as binoculars to spot dingoes in the brush, a camera to capture koalas in the trees and animals like Bindi’s own pet rat named Candy. At her fathers memorial sevice, Bindi said she wanted to continue her father’s conservation efforts and has since traveled to the United States and other countries advocating his cause. Bindi the Jungle Girl, a child-friendly version of her father’s show, launched in June 2007 on the Discovery Channel. She won a Daytime Emmy last month for the show and nabbed a Logie, an Australian TV award, in May for most popular new female talent. Not too bad for a girl who turns 10 later this month.
