"Tita started her dancing career as a salsa dancer, but after a couple of years she decided to pursue Tap instead,” begins the story on her hang tag. “Now she's one of the biggest tap-dancing stars in Guatemala! Besides dancing, Tita loves watching telenovelas with her good friend, Odi the Opera Singing Owl." Tita is clothed in hand-woven, traditional Guatemalan fabrics accented with complementary-colored details. Her eyes are bright, plastic buttons! She makes a great gift or playmate for the adventurous youngster in your life!

15-inches tall by 9-inches wide.
Note: Due to the buttons for her eyes, not for children under 3 years.
