Mel Gibson

Dolls Up Little Girls

... For Charity

11/29/2012 4:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Mel Gibson
knows what women want ... or at least 10-year-old girls ... because he recently went on a play date with two young ladies as part of the charity he works for -- and bought them expensive custom dolls!!!

The charity's called Mending Kids International -- an organization that performs life-saving surgeries for children around the world ... in this case, a 10- and an 11-year-old girl from Honduras who required serious reconstructive face surgeries.

The surgeries were a success -- and Mel celebrated with the girls by taking them out for a stroll around The Grove in L.A., eating lunch, ice cream, window shopping ... and finally, taking them on a trip to the American Girl doll store, where Mel helped them assemble their own look-alike dolls.

FYI -- the store ain't cheap.

Mel -- who's also participating in the Mending Kids celeb poker tournament this weekend in West Hollywood at the London -- tells us, "It was really fun spending time with Karol and Sara ... They have been through so much and are just so inspirational to everyone who meets them."

Mel adds, "At home, these girls couldn't leave their homes for fear of being tormented. Now, they are walking through one of the most popular tourist areas of Los Angeles."

Nice picture. Girls look happy and relaxed. And thrilled with their pretty dollies and pretty faces. Wish I could hug them too!

Hiya Sam, it' been a long time. Glad to see you're holding down the fort! And Fuddy, Ms Duddy; as always... a delight. Michelle; may G-d hold you tenderly in the palm of his hand.

And to anyone else I might have missed; have a great holiday season!

Shouldn't Giblitz be hard at work directing a new movie instead of parading young girls ranging in age from 9 to 24 around the Grove?

Spielberg, Tarrintino and Lee all came out with Oscar contenders while Gibby is still hitting up Bleakers trying to scare up some cash from a nouveau riche cokehead heiress. Oh how the mighty have fallen!

Something tells me there will be more fallout soon from Papa Gibz' divorce.

"Friends Jodie Foster and Robert Downey Jr. were singing Mel’s praises at the poker benefit. Foster gushed, “I love the guy, the good and the bad” while Downey said, “Seasons change. Highs and lows come and go. I just love the guy.”"

Bunnies RULE, pig just proved pigs still drool with mindless jealousy. :)

Mel helped them assemble those look-alike dolls? Well that explains why their skin tone is so light! I know that American Girl dolls come in a wide range of skin tones, so why do they have to look like that?
